Texercise Texas Style Celebrates Everyday Wellness for Seniors

September 1, 2012 by Morningside Ministries

Morningside Ministries in collaboration with the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (T.D.A.D.S.) and The Medical Team, hosted its first ever Texercise Texas Style event. This event featured three residents of Morningside Ministries who are 96, 99 and 100 years young who participate regularly in Texercise by T.D.A.D.S. and eat right using our “Por Vida” healthy menu.

UTSA’s award winning Basketball program sent San Antonio natives Tyler Wood and Larry Wilkins to our Texercise event at The Meadows. With an average height of 6’5″ and a combined weight of almost 500 pounds these NCAA basketball players are experts in staying in shape!

Every day, many people strive to eat healthy and stay in shape. Texercise Texas Style celebrates healthy living for all seniors. Who better to learn from than those who have stayed fit for almost a century? Continual exercise keeps seniors active, inspires confidence through their accomplishments and prevents muscle deterioration. The Texercise program emphasizes great habits like eating right and exercising and honors those who are living their results!
