Kewaunee Health & Fitness is the first in the area to offer an innovative new 10-week health and wellness program to residents 55 and over.

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) was developed by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and has been successful at helping older adults build their own playbook for aging well.

AMP is described as a fun, innovative, and person-centered education program that empowers participants to embrace their gift of longevity by spending more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others. The program encourages mastery – developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that lead to improved health, stronger economic security, enhanced well-being, and increased societal participation.

This program is funded in part by donations from the Green Bay Packers Foundation and the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.

The first AMP session will be held at Kewaunee Health and Fitness, 160 Terraqua Drive, Kewaunee, and will run from Oct. 2 through Dec. 4. Each class will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Additional sessions are planned in Algoma and Luxemburg for 2019.

Pre-registration is required, with a fee of $15 per person or $20 per couple to partially offset the cost of the program workbooks provided to each participant.
