Balance, Strength, and Stretching

Come and enjoy 30 minutes of balance training, 30 minutes of strength training, and 30 minutes of stretching! For older adults and seniors who want to stay healthy and independent, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends balance, strength, and range of motion exercises. Balance exercises build leg muscles, and this helps to prevent falls and related fractures. Strength exercises build older adult muscles and increase metabolism, which helps to keep weight and blood sugar in check. Stretching exercises result in more freedom of movement, which will allow you to be more active during your senior years. We will focus on proper technique, form, and breathing. The class is designed for any level of participants; beginners are especially welcome. Bring light weights, towel, and water.
