How to Stay Fit for Free in Long Beach

Aug. 4, 2013 / By

[ Ed Note: Communities of color are less physically active than the general population, putting them at greater risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses, according to the Department of Health & Human Services. In Long Beach, several community-based groups are working towards changing those statistics, making health and fitness programs free or affordable for low-income residents. The video above highlights a few of those programs. For a list of more local free fitness programs, refer to the list below.]
