Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Waterloo – The Laurier Association for Lifelong Learning (LALL) and Wilfrid Laurier University’s Department of Athletics and Recreation have partnered to offer a new, non-credit course on nutrition and exercise to support healthy lifestyles in older adults.

Active Aging through Nutrition and Exercise is a five-week course that includes weekly classroom lectures and exercise instruction. Lecture topics will address nutrition and aging; exercise instruction will focus on functional movements and proper technique. Laurier’s certified fitness instructors Jennifer O'Neill and Stefanie Kubacki will lead the course, which runs Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30-11:30 a.m., from May 1-31 at the Athletic Complex on Laurier’s Waterloo campus.

A one-month membership to Laurier’s Athletic Complex is included in the $90 course registration fee.

“We’re excited to partner with LALL to provide an active learning opportunity for older adults,” said Peter Baxter, director of Athletics and Recreation at Laurier. “We hope course participants develop a better understanding of how to achieve a healthier lifestyle.”

The course also provides participants with an opportunity to participate in Laurier’s vibrant campus community.

“LALL programming has been a part of Laurier for over 20 years and, through participant feedback, we know that LALL students enjoy being involved in our campus community,” said Lindsay Tayler, coordinator of non-credit programming in Laurier’s Office of Continuing Studies. “Active Aging through Nutrition and Exercise offers LALL participants a unique opportunity to engage with the university beyond a classroom setting.” 

Register by April 27. The course starts May 1.

LALL has offered a unique option for adult learning since 1997. Courses are non-credit and are intended for personal interest and self-education.
