*** Texercise Program

TRTA has partnered with the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to promote the Texercise program. Texercise is a great way to stay active in retirement. DADS is setting up many locations for you to get involved in the program.

Physical activity is important for older adults as it can reduce risk of chronic conditions and improve mental health. Texercise is the best way to stay fit and healthy during retirement. It is also a great opportunity to make new friends and see old acquaintances.

Get started today by visiting http://www.texercise.com. where you can  order a free Texercise handbook or DVD. Regular exercise can help you start improving your health in as little as 3 weeks.
