SECRETS FOR STAYING YOUNG
Tips from YMCA Members
David Miller, 68 – Bob Hoffman Dover Branch YMCA
"Keep moving: body in motion. Exercise and eat right. Always have something to do (I just finished painting a spare room!)"
Wayne Lutz, 75 - Eastern Branch YMCA
"Stay active, positive and continue to look forward to things that are on the horizon, like family, friends, sports and community."
Corinne Arugunes, 77 – York Branch YMCA
"The Lord has blessed me with good health. The best way I can honor Him is by doing the best I can to stay healthy because I don’t like feeling bad. He brings me through all trials and tribulations. I stretch first thing in the morning when my body is warm from being in bed. I make sure I go up and down the steps every day, take classes at the Y, and if I cannot get in there to take one, I do something at home! Keep it movin’!"
Harry (Milt) Steinhauser, 81 - York Branch YMCA
Bob and Barb Boyer, ages 82 and 79 - York Branch YMCA
"We run around and chase each other! LOL
We come into the Y faithfully, and when we are away on vacation, we walk. We eat well and we get plenty of sleep. We worship regularly at church and live a disciplined life. Balance."
Larry Sentz, 85 – Bob Hoffman Dover Branch YMCA
"First and foremost, a good woman! I’ve been coming to the Y for 20 years now. Nothing strenuous, but I regularly do cardio."
Marie Lauer, 86 – Bob Hoffman Dover Branch YMCA
"I help at church, making hats for cancer patients. I like to exercise and I take walks."
Helen Overlander, 90 – York Branch YMCA
"I work out, eat as healthy as I can, and stay active. I try to do everything I’m supposed to! I read an article about a year ago in a health magazine and it said you could even change your DNA if you did all of those things. It made me feel good to know that I was already doing them."
Bob Rudy, 90 - W. Dale Brougher Foundation YMCA
"Get up and move! Coming to the Y every day and working out and seeing friends is what it is all about. Also eating 1 York Peppermint Patty everyday helps too"
In summary, be active, eat well, connect regularly with good people, care for others and have faith.
