Loma Linda's Secret to Longevity

Did you know Loma Linda is a "Blue Zone"? This is a term used to describe regions around the world where people have a much higher than average chance of living longer, healthier lives. These areas were identified through demographic research and environmental factors that contribute to longevity. The concept was popularized by National Geographic Fellow and author Dan Buettner, who pinpointed five regions around the world as Blue Zones.

Loma Linda, California, is one of these unique Blue Zones. It's recognized for its significant population of Seventh-day Adventists, who are known for their healthy lifestyle choices.

The community practices include a predominantly plant-based diet, regular physical activity, strong social networks, and a focus on spirituality. These practices contribute to residents having one of the highest life expectancies in the United States, living up to ten years longer than the average American.

In the context of your gym, Loma Linda's status as a Blue Zone highlights how local lifestyles, including engaging in activities like parkour, support long-term health and well-being.

Parkour: A Pathway to Movement Freedom

During his visit, David Farrier spoke with Steven Rimmerman, our General Manager and a seasoned parkour athlete. Steven shared his insights on how parkour, under the guidance of knowledgeable coaches, isn’t just a sport but a transformative lifestyle that is accessible to everyone, from children to the elderly.
