What would you do after leaving a physician’s office with a prescription in hand?

Y

ou’d likely get the prescription filled and begin taking the medication according to the precise instructions on the prescription label. But what if you left a physician’s office with a prescription for healthy exercise and fitness? No need to visit a pharmacy or mail away the prescription… you can explore the opportunities for exercise and fitness right here in Prince George’s County, select what interests you and get started! May has been designated “National Physical Fitness and Sports Month” by The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports since 1983. Why not make time for exercise and fitness to promote your own good health every day this Spring? When it comes to exercise and fitness we believe it’s all about YOU! What interests you? What motivates you? What works for you? What’s good for you? What do you enjoy?


eation RX Your He a lth

Consider this your prescription. You are invited to engage in healthy exercise and fitness activities – no RSVP needed! With your M-NCPPC parks and recreation facilities you don’t need expensive workout clothes and shoes, previous experience, or a big budget. People of all ages, sizes and skill levels are welcome. Try an activity; if you don’t like it or stick with it, no problem – just try something else. And you have choices... you may want a class that meets regularly at set times and days. Consider classes in tennis, martial arts, ice hockey, soccer, gymnastics, flag football, ice skating, weight training, boxing or family walking. How about fitness boot camp or an aerobics class that features kickboxing, rope jumping or even use of hula hoops? And dance is fun, with no experience or skill needed. You may choose ballet, belly, ballroom, modern, hand, hip-hop, Latin, line, liturgical modern, tap and salsa dance classes. Sign up with a friend and share the good times. Like the water, or want to learn to enjoy it? The whole family can take swim lessons or visit an aquatic facility for recreational and lap swimming. Consider a water walking, water aerobics, aqua arthritis or aqua Zumba class. Or, take a kayak lesson and find a fun and healthy new hobby. If you prefer the flexibility of fitting fitness activities into your busy schedule, there’s plenty to do at your leisure. Based on your available free time you can hike, bike or jog

on a trail or enjoy skateboarding, ice-skating, disc golf, golf, and racquetball. Most M-NCPPC community centers in Prince George’s County have fitness rooms where you can exercise when it works for you. M-NCPPC also has hundreds of parks throughout the county where you can drop by and participate in activities that you enjoy – walk the dog, shoot hoops with the kids, or play a bit of tennis. The Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex even operates a Children’s Center with staffed child care for a nominal fee while you take a class, swim or work out in the facility. All of these options help make it work for your family’s busy schedule. We’ve all heard about the benefits of regular exercise and the positive impact exercise makes on our physical health, mental health, weight,

bones, skin, muscles, and stress level. If you’re interested in starting a new fitness program or stepping up what you’re already doing, please check with your doctor and find out what’s best for you. And be sure to log on to www.pgparks.com, explore the programs in this GUIDE, or speak with staff at the Park and Planning Help Desk at 301-699-2255 to learn more about your exercise and fitness opportunities. As May approaches, be sure to check online to find out about the FREE exercise and fitness programs being offered throughout the month in conjunction with “National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.” ■

Once a thriving plantation, Montpelier is one of the finest examples of 18th c. Georgian architecture in Maryland. The house was built c. 1783 by Major Thomas Snowden shortly after his marriage to Ann Ridgely. Although limited documentation is available about daily operations, enslaved Africans and indentured servants provided the labor as field hands and skilled craftsmen at the plantation and the Patuxent Ironworks. Montpelier hosted many famous individuals, including George and Martha Washington and Abigail Adams. Montpelier is fully restored and furnished as it might have been in 1830. The grounds boast an original 18th c. summerhouse, one of only two surviving in the U.S. on its original site. The mansion is available for weddings, receptions, and meetings.

Reeves was schooled in both gospel and classical music, but it was R&B that caught her imagination. She began performing in the late ‘50s under the name Martha Lavaille, briefly joining the Fascinations and then the Del-Phis. Impressed by the power and flexibility of her voice, Berry Gordy offered her the chance to record. She reassembled the Del-Phis quartet as the Vels for a single and later led the group on their debut release under a new name, Martha and the Vandellas. They became one of Motown’s most successful recording outfits, and Reeves’ strident vocals were showcased on classic hits such as “Heat Wave,” “Dancing in the Street,” and “Nowhere to Run.”

PRE-SCHOOLERS AND CHILDREN & YOUTH To our customers: for this issue of the Guide and in the Performing Arts section only, we have combined the Pre-School and Children & Youth sections to make it easier for you to find performing arts courses for your children. Many of the instructors that work with our centers have varying ages for their programs that cross over our age group descriptions. This has been confusing to you and has made it difficult for you to see all that we offer in the performing arts section. Let us know what you think by sending us an email at: public.affairs@pgparks.com

In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds.This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whos bodies have become battlegrounds ‘ruined’ by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

Come with us for a spectacular show at the new Music Center at Strathmore in Montgomery County. The Grammy award winner Nancy Wilson will captivate the audience with her singing style, gliding easily from jazz to pop to rhythm and blues. Dinner will not be included.

68/ M-NCPPC, Spring 20 11 Guide to Parks and Recreation

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission policy gives priority to Prince George’s County residents during program and class enrollment; it also increases registration fees by approximately 20 percent for non-residents, or those living outside Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. This procedure ensures that the citizens who fund these programs through their tax dollars have the first option to enroll. After the priority registration period, registrations are accepted from residents of all jurisdictions. The fee schedule applies to all Commission programs and facilities in Prince George’s County, with a few exceptions such as performance tickets and historic site admission fees.

Need help? E-mail the Park and Planning Help Desk at help4smartlink@pgparks.com

Fee Structure Please note that fees are listed in groups, allowing a reduced fee for county residents. A guide to this fee structure is shown below. (R) (NR) (IA) (M) (RM) (NRM)

Residents of Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties Non-residents: residents living anywhere except Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties Residents living in the impact area of the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex A member of a facility group, independent of residency A resident of Prince George’s or Montgomery Counties who is also a member of the facility A non-resident of Prince George’s or Montgomery Counties who is a member of the facility

Curry Sports & Learning Center only. Call 301-583-2400, TTY 301-583-2483 for information about the impact area.

Refund Policy The registrant is entitled to a 100% refund, or a credit to his/her account, in the event that The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission cancels a course. The registrant may withdraw from a course at any time prior to course end, and will be entitled to receive a pro-rated credit to his/her account, based on the number of classes remaining at the time the withdrawal is requested. All withdrawals must be processed by the facility offering the program. If the registrant chooses to request a refund of the pro-rated amount, a 20% Refund Administration Fee will be imposed, reducing the amount to be refunded. No requests for refunds will be accepted after a course is completed. No cash refunds will be allowed. Refunds for credit card purchases will be issued as a credit to the credit card account, subject to the 20% Refund Administration Fee. Check refunds may take 3-4 weeks to process.

Some activities have different refund/withdrawal policies that supersede this standard policy, as identified in the course description or details.
