For a healthy body, healthy mind, we obviously know we should be both physically and mentally healthy and fit. A healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Mental health is imperative for physical health. We need to remain healthy, physically and mentally. We are searching for mental peace all the time to counter stress in our daily lives, but we do not realize that if we are neglecting our bodies then how can we nourish our mind. All of us can follow some simple tips of healthy habits for a healthy body, healthy mind and a healthier lifestyle.

Pineville Parks and Recreation offers citizens endless opportunities to achieve your fitness and wellness goals at our indoor/outdoor walking tracks, playgrounds, gym, fitness classes, athletic fields, and more. For more information on our health and fitness opportunities check out our website www.pinevillenc.gov or call 704-889-2400.

PPR Health Tip: 

Fruits and Vegetables For a healthy body, healthy mind, adding fresh fruits and veggies to your diet is imperative as they are the main source of nutrition for your body and they help in keeping your appetite in check.

Exercise– Take some time out from your busy schedule to exercise. Walk, jog, skip, do yoga for 30 minutes for at least 3 days a week which is an extensive booster of not only a healthy body but also for a healthy mind.

Stay Hydrated– Drink plenty of water and liquid to keep yourself hydrated and to remove toxins from of your system.

Sleep Tight– Get yourself a minimum of seven hours sleep every night, so that you feel fresh and energized throughout the day. Sleep tight, all night because that is your time to be with you.

Take a Chill Pill– Take some time out from your busy schedule for yourself. Once in a while take a break from your daily routine. Go for dinner, watch movies, and spend time with family and friends. You will feel physically and mentally relaxed and refreshed.

Patton’s Performance Bootcamp

Our 55-minute sessions include a dynamic warm-up, workout, metabolic meltdown finisher, then a cool-down, and stretching period. This program has been proven to be the most effective training time for fat loss and building strength for men and women.  Each participant works out at their own pace within the group.  Pineville’s Bootcamp instructor, Audrey Patton is a nationally certified personal trainer who will keep it fun and challenging while making modifications for individuals which makes the training more personalized.

Each training day, or workout, includes a run or cardio component, a resistance or strength-training component and a core-training component. Each component is designed to focus on speed, agility, power, strength, or endurance. Many of the exercises rely on body weight, but we also utilize equipment such as dumbbells, resistance bands, agility ladders, a partner’s body weight, and other natural and man-made aspects of the park like stairs, benches, hills and the parking lot.

Our training weeks are designed so that there is minimal overlap in training different muscle groups. This allows for greater recovery and a highly efficient approach to achieving balanced, total-body fitness.

Moving through each 4-week session, we gradually increase the training intensity and volume to keep up with your body as it adapts to the training, ensuring that you’ll receive the most out of every week you train.

This is a year-round program that delivers results while keeping it challenging, safe, sustainable, interesting, and fun for participants.
