The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center is hosting a workshop offered by Barb Blum to motivate older adults.

COURTESY PHOTO  - Barb Blum will lead a new session of Aging Mastery Program starting Sept. 10. The nine-week course focuses on helping keep seniors motivated to master aging.

Most of us around the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center know what is needed to live a healthy life.

We need to eat nutritious food, drink plenty of water, exercise, read and be social. But, as television character G.I. Joe said at the end of every episode "knowing is half the battle." The other half of the battle is being motivated to be our best selves.

In an effort to keep you motivated the center offers the Aging Mastery Program led by Barb Blum.

Blum obtained a Healthy Older Adult Fitness certificate and has been actively motivating older adults for five years.

Blum also has certificates in Silver Sneakers, Silver and Fit, Healthy Eating Every Day, Active Living Every Day, Fit & Strong and of course the Aging Mastery Program. The ACC has been offering this evidence-based program for years.

The program is nine weeks in duration, with each week covering a different topic regarding health and aging ranging from nutrition, sleep to finances.

Blum brings in experts on the topics to provide great information and motivation. Together with your peers and instructor support you will be motivated to be your personal best mastering this thing called aging.

A new series of the Aging Mastery Program will begin Sept. 10 and meets from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Nov. 5. A fee of $45 is charged for the course, (workbook included in the registration fee) and registration is required.
