Healthy Huntsville 2012 is a partnership between the City of Huntsville and local businesses and
organizations geared to making Huntsville a healthier city in 2012. It’s estimated that nearly a
third of adults in Madison County are obese, and Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle hopes the
Healthy Huntsville initiative can change that statistic.
The initiative’s goal is to raise awareness on the impact of obesity and type 2 diabetes, educate
the public on the science of health, promote fitness and nutrition, and to provide practical tips
for healthy lifestyle changes.
So come on out to the Garden and start your Saturday off with a series of poses and stretches
that are sure to leave you feeling refreshed, recharged and ready for the rest of your weekend!
