Beaumont Takes Pride In Health Of Citizens

Take care of your body. Its the only place you have to live. Jim Rohn, entrepreneur and motivational speaker (1930-2009)


Beaumont is an active city where everyone can keep fit, stay in shape, and enjoy a healthy life.

Whether you like running a 10K race, jogging around the track, taking a walk, riding your bike, swimming a few laps, joining a fitness class, learning to eat right, or getting in shape with First Lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move! program, the City of Beaumont wants to join with you in living healthy!

Our hometown has a long tradition and a deep commitment to help residents get the most out of life. In Beaumont, we have 15 city parks for family recreation and exercise. We also support the fitness efforts of the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District, which offers many classes and athletic activities at Noble Creek Community Park. We also salute the Beaumont Unified School District for encouraging a healthy lifestyle for our children. Students benefit from campus running clubs and the Beaumont Spirit Run, which raises money for local schools.

 And we cant forget the Beaumont Rugby Club, Beaumont Youth Baseball & Softball, Beaumont Adult Softball, the American Youth Soccer Organization, the Beaumont Youth Community Basketball League, Junior All-American Football and swim teams at Beaumont High School.

In Beaumont, were trying to promote healthy eating and an active lifestyle, said Mayor Roger Berg.

The legacy of a vigorous, healthy lifestyle dates more than a half-century ago to the opening of The Plunge at Stewart Park. It was the talk of the town as youngsters frolicked, played Marco Polo, swam laps in the municipal pool. Before then, families who wanted to take a swim would pack up their youngsters and drive all the way to San Jacinto.

In the early 1990s, Beaumont dreamed of a network of bikeways that would fan out across town. Now, you can leave the family car behind and ride to school, local businesses, parks and many of our inviting neighborhoods along 28 miles of bike trails and paths connecting our city. And another 37 miles of bikeways are planned!

For the last several years, the City has hosted a bicycle road race and 5K/10K community run. These springtime events are real crowd-pleasers and get us all thinking about physical fitness. The Redlands Bicycle Classic Beaumont Road Race will feature about 400 professional cyclists taking to the streets of our hometown and Cherry Valley while careening across every possible kind of terrain to the finish line.

Breezin Through Beaumont welcomes almost 600 experienced runners and avid walkers alike who will be making their way along the streets of our hometown and finishing up near Stewart Park. You might catch them training on the track at our 20-acre Beaumont Sports Park.

In 2010, Beaumont picked up the pace by joining First Lady Michelle Obama Lets Move! campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation.

 Lets Move! encourages healthy foods in schools, better food labeling, and more physical activity for youngsters.

The program also promotes active families and cities like Beaumont are asked to take steps to foster physical fitness. Our hometown has already earned a bronze medal for participating in Lets Move! and hopes to receive a gold medal for meeting future fitness goals.

Hometown fitness

Meanwhile, Beaumont is hard at work on its own fitness and nutrition program to keep city employees and the community active and eating right.

City employees are encouraged to exercise regularly; healthy employees mean fewer sick days, more productivity, lower insurance premiums and enhanced public service

 When they check their inboxes on Mondays, they find healthy recipes and tips from Customer Service Coordinator Karee Keyser. 

One of Keysers recent emails told of the importance of eating right to get the proper amount of omega-3 fats, which help lower triglycerides and total cholesterol. The fats are important for growth, heart health, and brain function. Another email offered up a tasty, healthy recipe for apple mustard burgers made with ground chicken, turkey, or pork.

Ive always had a deep passion for health and fitness, said Keyser, who earned a degree in kinetics, the scientific study of human movement.

Keyser will soon share her recipes and tips for healthy living with the community on the citys website, www.BeaumontCares.com[1] In mid-April, the City will start a walking club, which will meet once a week to encourage fitness. Stay tuned for more details! And the City and Beaver Medical Group will also sponsor health education classes and seminars for the community starting in the fall.

In Beaumont, we take pride in the health of our citizens and this community, said Mayor Roger Berg. Its great to see this legacy continue and grow.

      The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.

      Take care bye

    How Will You Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle In The Future? Imagine yourself after college. You’re married with a few kids. You’re gaining a few pounds every now and then. How will you get yourself back on track into a healthy lifestyle?

      Minus the after college part, but I have 2 kids and am expecting the third one in a few weeks. We maintain healthy lifestyles by eating nutritious foods, lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies, and milk. We also get a lot of exercise in. Although my kids are still toddlers and I’m big as a house, everyday as a family my husband and I walk with the kids up and down the road, then when we get home my husband stays outside with the kids and plays with them while I get supper fixed. We don’t turn the TV on until after baths, forcing us to get up off the couch. Hopefully that will encourage our kids to maintain healthy lifestyles after they’re all grown up.

      Healthy lifestyle…involves eating right, exercing, and relationships you have with others. Also if you live in a clean environment…messy=germs=sickness…and to maintain a healthy lifestyle you need to frequenlty eat right, do some sort of physical activity, be nice to others (stress is bad for health), and keep a clean home
