Classes start on September 12 and run for 6-weeks. Classes focus on strength, endurance, mobility and balance.
All abilities and athletic levels are welcome.
Cost is $30 for 6-weeks.
Here are some reasons why you should start today:
- "In addition to exercises that improve lower-extremity strength, range of motion, and cardiovascular endurance, it is now being recommended that exercise therapy programs also include techniques to improve balance and coordination, and provide patients with an opportunity to practice various skills that they will likely encounter during normal daily activities" (Fitzgerald & Oates)
Exercise is an important step towards protecting your bones, as it helps protect your spine, slows the rate of bone loss, and builds muscle strength, which can prevent falls. Exercise is recommended for all people with osteoporosis, even people who have had a spine or hip fracture. (Osteoporosis Canada)
A recent Swedish study found that physical activity was the number one contributor to longevity, adding extra years to your life—even if you don’t start exercising until your senior years. But getting active is not just about adding years to your life, it’s about adding life to your years. You’ll not only look better when you exercise, you’ll feel sharper, more energetic, and experience a greater sense of well-being. (Robinson, Smith & Segal)
