Staying active in your senior years is an important part in preventing the risk for certain diseases or managing a pre-existing condition. On Wednesday, May 30th we are celebrating our senior members with a special day of activities to help them keep active, healthy and fit!
Here are three fitness tips for seniors:
Start Your Routine at Your Own Pace
If you have not been active in a while, start slowly. Talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise routine. We have the Polar BodyAge® fitness assessment that will provide you with accurate data to determine your current fitness level. Our fitness specialists will use your results to create a customized fitness plan for your needs.
Stretch to Increase Flexibility
Improve your flexibility by stretching before and after your workouts. You can use a chair or wall for additional support. You’ll feel better and increase your balance and strength.
Explore Group Exercise Classes
As you become stronger through a basic strength and aerobic routine, you can incorporate group exercise classes, personal training and a variety of fitness offerings we have at the Center to reach your goals. Water Aerobics, Gentle Yoga, Forever Young, Body Works Express, Chair Fitness, Pilates and more are great options we offer that can be fun and effective for all fitness levels.
Here is the list of activities that we have planned for the day. Bring a friend! (Photo ID required)
