AZ Family Fit Camp 2013!

TOCA is proud to sponsor the AZ Family Fit Camp 2013!

Arizona Family Fit Camp is a non profit organization which focuses on the importance of healthy lifestyle to children and adults. We will be having the camp in two locations: Peoria (Vistancia) and Glendale Apollo High School.

TOCA is excited about sponsoring this program which aims to help get kids out of the house to work on areas of interest which include improving:

1) Speed
2) Agility
3) Strength
4) Endurance
5) Flexibility

This year the focus will be on Nutrition and Injury Prevention. AZ Family Fit Camp will be promoting whole foods including lean meat, fruits and veggies. This program will be starting June 4th and will go through July 25th for a total of 8 weeks.

The objectives of the Az Family Fit Camp are:

1) To provide a healthy outside exercise-based program during the summer for all youth and adults from 3 years old and up.

2) To provide a tremendous opportunity for college and high school aged student/athletes to work over the summer providing a community service by working with children. The coaches will work two hours each night. One hour will be volunteer the other hour is paid.

3) Due to interest from the parents, we will also be offering this year again a program for the parents to exercise and stay fit as well while the kids are in the Fit Camp. We feel this is an important component for the kids to see that their parent’s value staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle as well.

Dr. Feng speaking on Women's Health at Banner Baywoond June 26th

On June 26th from 6pm to 8pm Dr. Feng will be speaking at Banner Baywood Medical Center (6644 E. Baywood Ave., Mesa) on Women’s Health as part of their Spirit of Women seminar series.

“Do you move through life with energy and enthusiasm...or aches and pains?

Problems affecting the major joints of the body like the spine, shoulders, hips and knees can cause persistent pain, interfere with daily living and restful sleep, and develop into more serious problems which can become difficult and complicated to treat.

The seminars will emphasize awareness of risk factors, how to tell if the pain is related to a manageable muscular issue or a serious problem, when to seek medical help and what participants themselves can do, including what they can eat, to fortify their bones. Rest, heat and cold, physical therapy exercises, and simple to sophisticated pain relief methods will be presented, as will traditional and minimally invasive techniques for the minority who may require surgical intervention. All those in attendance will also receive some real recipes that they can cook up at home with ingredients that fortify their bones as they enjoy indulging in them.

Join our medical experts as they help you to “Fortify Your Bones” at our upcoming Spirit of Women seminars.”

Register by calling, (602) 230-CARE (2273). Seminars are free. Seating is limited.
