London, UK (PRWEB UK) 30 November 2013
Milton Keynes residents are being invited to take part in one of four ‘flash mobs’ to raise money for the Henry Allen Legacy fund and Macintyre, the Milton Keynes Citizen reported November 12th. The article, “Sleek flash mob for Henry,” explained that the events – which have been organised by Sleek Dance – will have a Christmas theme and will occur during the weekend of November 30th to December 1st, with one set for December 15th. The money raised through collections will then be shared between the two charities. (http://www.miltonkeynes.co.uk/news/local/sleek-flash-mob-for-henry-1-5675616)
This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to explore the fitness benefits of flash mobs, as well as other creative ways to get in shape. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Scientists are increasingly linking wellness in old age with fitness. If you want to beat diabetes, dementia, heart disease, obesity, or any of the other debilitating conditions that can affect your wellbeing in old age, the best thing you can do is to get moving. Not only does exercise help you drop pounds but it also gets rid of stress and helps to boost your mood. It doesn’t have to be a case of walking round the block on your own or slogging it out on a boring treadmill, though, there are lots of fun ways to take exercise.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/10/improve-fitness-fun-creative-way/#sthash.4UGGhCNT.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine outlined two fun ways to exercise:
1. Flash mobs. These are one of the most interesting modern ways to get strangers meeting up and moving together. These often involve doing an activity such as a dance routine, and they can be great fun and bring different types of people together. Training mobs are a new concept on this, where groups of people gather together to work out spontaneously. This can be a fun and whacky way to get moving without even realising it.
2. Charity walks. Many health organisations run sponsored walks to help raise awareness and money for their cause. Participants can do training walks with friends and then join in the events.
3. Walking tours. These can be discovered online or in local parks, and some are self-guided or some come with a guide.
