As you may have seen in Reference Services's blog, Westlake Porter Public Library—in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books—is launching GymAmerica, a comprehensive online fitness, health and nutrition service designed to help library patrons get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
With GymAmerica, patrons have access to exclusive and build-your-own fitness and diet programs. Over 1,200 exercises with instructional videos are available, along with a 40,000+ food database and recipe finder and maker. Patrons can monitor their progress with easy-to-use diet, nutrition and workout trackers, as well as an iPhone® App for real-time tracking. GymAmerica is like having your own personal trainer and nutritionist, available for free through your library.
If you've never been geocaching before, attend this introductory program to find out how to do it! You will need to bring a GPS-enabled smartphone or a handheld GPS device.
