Becoming healthier is always among Americans’ top ten New Year’s resolutions and this year Darryl Haley wants to show you how.
Join Darryl as he unfolds the ten hottest fitness trends of 2015 in his new radio segment Fitness Friday on WHUR 96.3. Explore the advantages and disadvantages of treadmill studios, charcoal, juicing, and much more. Darryl conducts exclusive interviews with DC councilmembers who could not wait to set a healthy example and share the healthy habits of the Wards they represent.
Darryl met recently with Councilmember Yvette Alexander, Chair of the DC Health and Human Services Committee. Councilmember Alexander wore bright red apparel in support of February heart month. February 6 is national Go Red for Women day, which is dedicated to spreading life-saving information about heart disease, the number one killer of women.
Councilmember Yvette Alexander also mentioned her efforts to provide CPR training in schools, allow for coverage of tobacco cessation medication, and support the corner store initiatives. She reiterated the importance of taking care of yourself and encouraged all to receive regular doctor checkups. She said, “First you detect it, then treat it, and then you can eliminate it.”
You can tune into WHUR 96.3 on Fridays during the Steve Harvey Morning Show to hear the latest scoop. Although trends come and go, health is always in fashion.
