Fun and Fit Twins Bring ‘Fun Fit Facts for Older Adults’ to Santa Barbara Elks Dinner and Dance

Friday presentation to provide tips for active lives, longevity among older adults

Identical twins and international fitness experts Kymberly Williams-Evans MA and Alexandra Williams MA will be presenting interactive, fun and factual advice at Friday’s Elks Lodge Dinner and Dance at Lodge No. 613, 150 N. Kellogg Ave. Their talk, entitled “Fun Fit Facts for Older Adults,” starts at 7:15 p.m. and will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Attendees will hear the latest tips and quips on sipping and supping from the Exercise Fountain of Youth.

“Both my sister and I are very enthused about this opportunity to reach Elks directly since recent research has shown even more positive effects of activity on older adults,” said Williams-Evans. “We have seen firsthand the difference ‘a little bit more than the day before’ can make in people’s lives. Activity truly can be life transforming starting any at age and any level.”

According to Williams-Evans, “Exercise increases the flow of oxygen, which directly affects the brain. Mental acuity and memory can be improved with physical activity. Who can say ‘no’ to a better memory and enhanced brain power? Hey, people understand our wit better when they’re smart and fit, so we want to make sure the Elks get up and boogie!”

The twins have more than 60 years’ combined fitness experience on land, sea and airwaves. They have been called the humorous Dear Abby and Ann Landers of the workout world. Their blog, Fun and Fit: Q and A with K and A, answers common and quirky fitness questions. They also can be found weekly on noozhawk.com, Santa Barbara’s local news Web site.

Lodge 613 of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks has been an active part of the Santa Barbara Community since 1900, providing a meeting place for community-minded individuals interested in charity and building support services in Santa Barbara and Goleta.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
