Physically and spiritually fit

Who needs gym memberships to keep fit when you can exercise with fellow parishioners right at church? That’s what plenty of Hawaii Catholics are doing lately, according to a story in the June 27 issue of the Hawaii Catholic Herald.

These parishioners are getting together for tai chi classes, fitness lessons using elastic resistance bands, and — since it’s Hawaii – hula aerobics. One parishioner, who has been with a parish exercise group for two years, said the activity gives seniors a chance to “crack our bones and get physically fit.” But she also said the group is more than just a fitness club because participants “share stories and news about personal life. You come to develop friendships.”
