The Magazine

Welcome to  Athens MOVE … magazine, website and social media resources dedicated to getting people moving and living healthier lives by increasing their physical activity and improving their diet.

Athens MOVE has been created through the collaboration of individuals and organizations that share a common passion for improving the lives of our citizens and community through sports, recreation, fitness and wellness programs. With the support of our Advisory Council and community partners, we focus on four basic goals:

  • Convince people of all ages about why they need to increase their physical activity and improve their diet.
  • Educate them about the many different ways that they can get moving and eat better.
  • Inspire them to take action through examples of people who have committed to making healthy changes in their lives and have incredible stories to share.
  • Connect them with the organizations, facilities and resources that can help them get moving and living a healthier life.

No matter what our age, circumstance or station in life, almost all of us can improve our physical health by getting involved in a sport, recreational activity or fitness program. But the benefits don’t stop there. The social, emotional and intellectual benefits of these activities are also really important. This is especially true for children as they grow and develop. That is why we are so excited about our partnership with area schools. Over 18,000 copies of MOVE will be given to students in kindergarten through 8th grades to help motivate them and their families to get moving, too.

We will also make Athens MOVE available through employers, medical offices, sports and recreation facilities and select retail locations throughout the greater Athens area. To ensure you receive your copy of Athens MOVE six times per year, go to www.AthensMOVE.com to request a subscription. Or sign up to receive our free digital issue in order to read it on your computer, iPad, or any mobile device. Make sure you visit www.AthensMOVE.com to get the latest information and resources on anything and everything about sports, recreation, fitness, wellness and diet in the Athens area.

We want to hear from you so make sure you connect with us on Facebook and Twitter, too.
