In the cool of the morning and evening hours, immersed in the green of the municipal parks, the open-air sport of ‘Parchi in Movimento’ 2022 returns for the sixth edition: the initiative organized by the Municipality of Castelfranco di Sotto in collaboration with the Uisp Committee Zona Cuoio and with the patronage of Sst Azienda Usl Toscana Centro.
The activities are carried out safely and completely free of charge. It is over two months of motor activity: the program runs from 20 June to 29 July 2022 and includes lessons of various types, to offer a different choice and meet everyone’s needs: yoga, gentle gymnastics, aerobics & toning and pilates courses coordinated by Uisp accredited teachers. The project aims to promote a healthy lifestyle and highlight the benefits that physical activity in the open air has on the body, especially after a long period spent at home with limited movements and a sedentary lifestyle.
“By now ‘Parks in Motion’ has become a much awaited event in the area – said Mayor Gabriele Toti and the Councilor for Sport Federico Grossi – after yet another season of limitations and closures, return to outdoor sports and in a totally free formula it is truly a unique opportunity to relax and be together. A great way to make our municipal green areas live and reactivate the sociability that we missed so much in the winter months. All activities are financially supported by the municipal administration with its own resources. Thanks to Uisp Zona Cuoio for the collaboration and support that this year they will guarantee with their professionalism “.
“We are happy to have won the tender for the management of the 6th edition of Parks in Motion, the third consecutive with the Uisp management. After the first two years in the midst of the pandemic, finally this year the Covid pressure is a bit ‘ – added Antonio Bottai, president of Uisp Territorial Committee Zona del Cuoio Aps – always respecting the regulations in force, the management of activities should be a little more peaceful for everyone. This is because, as we know very well, physical activity is a panacea both physically and mentally, and it is also a good moment to get together, hoping that this is truly the restart at 360 degrees for the whole sport “.
