Active Living Everyday (ALED)
ALED is a group-based behavior-change physical activity program developed at the Cooper Institute that focuses on helping sedentary people become and stay physically active.
Moderate amounts and intensities of physical activity result in significant health benefits. 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity, or a combination of both, pay off big in terms of health benefits.
Lifestyle physical activity is an important alternative to more traditional fitness-center based exercise. Everyone is different; some people prefer a structured exercise program. But when you’re just starting out, in particular, lifestyle physical activity gets you moving without special equipment, and you can do it anywhere.
People are more likely to become and stay active when taught appropriate lifestyle skills based on their readiness to change. Wonder why you start a new program, then are right back where you started six months later? You haven’t changed your behavior. This program teaches you how to change.
How does it work?
Participants, about 20 people in a group, come together for one hour weekly sessions for 12 weeks of education and discussion to learn skills (i.e., identifying and overcoming barriers, setting goals, creating an action plan) needed to become more physically active. A variety of moderate and vigorous physical activities are discussed in the program, giving the background for individuals to make their personal decisions the type and amount of exercise they want to do. Participants do their actual physical activity outside of the group setting. Facilitators (instructors) that teach the course are trained and certified. A participant book is used in conjunction with the course.
Who can participate?
Anyone interested in becoming physically active.
Classes will start in June. Call 608-7583 for more information.
