Name: Nancy Bruning, MPH – *How Many Things Can You Do on a Park Bench?*
Probably you can do a lot more than you think! Nancy Bruning is a certified personal trainer and group exercise leader, as well as the author of 25 books about health and fitness. She got her start in Washington Heights and has been leading outdoor fitness classes in city parks since 2004. That’s plenty of time to create and fine tune exercises that stretch and tone your body… using no exercise equipment other than a park bench! The exercises in her book, “Nancercize!: 101 Things to Do on a Park Bench” not only help you meet current healthy exercise recommendations–they add spice and challenge to your outdoor walks or runs. And, did you know that being in nature has many health benefits on its own? So, imagine getting double the health benefits of either exercise or exposure to nature alone. Curious? Take a look at “101 Things to Do on a Park Bench,” the video created by Nancy for the Fort Tryon Park Trust. Guaranteed to make you smile, available on her website.
