Stay Healthy Brevard
Stay healthy and have fun doing it on Florida's Space Coast
It is a sun-drenched, water-cooled paradise to which our friends and relatives in other places can only point and be envious. Our beaches sparkle, our waters are clean, our wildlife is abundant, our woods are pristine. We have trails for running, parks for playing, beaches for walking, paths for biking, water for swimming and waves for surfing.
Do you see the common thread?
The Space Coast is and always has been a place for vigorous, energetic people, from karate kids to strolling seniors, blessed with the natural resources to provide a dynamic lifestyle, and the health care facilities and professionals to keep it that way. Face it, friends: You can’t play, dine, tune in or celebrate the holidays very well if you’re not in shape for them.
We’ll post information about exercise, nutrition and maybe a little rehab for people of all ages, with information provided by local professionals all with the intention of making your active life a little easier . . . or at least a little less achy.
So join us. Stay healthy, Brevard!
