Senior Strength & Balance (60 Min)
Do you want to improve your balance? Muscular strength is essential for balance. We do exercises that
strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright including your legs and core. These exercises improve
stability and help prevent falls. A chair is provided for each participant to give standing support and for
seated movements. We are always seated in the final 10 minutes of class for cool-down and stretching.
A variety of equipment is used – balls, hand weights, resistance bands, and step-over objects to keep
things interesting. These tools are stored under the chair out of harm’s way; no personal belongings on
the floor for safety. We move with great attention to detail and correct form to avoid injury; quality of
movement over speed. Bring a bottle of water, your sense of humor and wear a clean pair of supportive
shoes. Leave class feeling renewed and empowered.
Vintage Muscle Fusion (60 Min)
Would you take a vintage muscle or classic car 4-wheeling? No, of course not! In this total body
conditioning class we move slowly and carefully, making smooth transitions from one exercise to the
next and keeping things in alignment! We do exercises we can’t do standing up, so most of the time we
will be on the floor. Thicker training mats are available for your comfort. Using our own body weight as
well as hand weights, small balls and sometimes even with the bigger stability balls we strengthen our
muscles while enjoying music from decades past. Do interesting exercises safely at a comfortable pace
and keep your body in good condition. Dress comfortably and bring our own bottle of water.
Give it a test drive!
Movement Rx 1 & 2 (45 Min)
Previously called “Silver Sneakers,” this class is the bedrock from which our active older adult classes
started. We’ve given it a fresh coat of paint by updating the name, reducing class size and adding a
second class section because it is SO popular! A safe and effective full body workout designed to
improve muscular strength & endurance, balance & stability, coordination, agility and flexibility.
Exercises are performed both seated and standing with a chair is provided for support. Hand weights,
resistance bands and exercise balls are used. Have fun doing a variety of movements to keep you strong,
independent and feeling good! Increase your physical well-being and improve your mood. Wear sturdy,
clean athletic shoes and bring a bottle of water.
Movement is Medicine!
YOGA-ta-try-this! (60 Min)
Practice the fundamentals of yoga and foundational poses in a calm, accepting environment at a pace
that offers personal development. Explore the mind-body breath connection, enhance body awareness,
increase flexibility and ease of movement; strengthen and stretch muscles, improve posture, body
balance and sleep, reduce stress, pain and achieve deeper concentration and relaxation. This class is for
everyone!. No experience needed. Bring your own mat (or use one of ours). Yoga blocks and straps
provided as needed. Don’t forget your water!
Pedal Pushers (30 Min)
Ride an adjustable stationary bike to improve cardiovascular function, joint mobility, burn calories and
lose body fat. We warm-up, cool down and finish by stretching beside our bikes. Learn proper bike set-
up, correct body positioning and enjoy a guided ride at varying intensities (some hills and some flats)
training at whatever level you’re comfortable with. Feel stronger, reducing stress, depression, blood
pressure and resting heart rate. This low impact cycling class is good for everyone! Start class with a full
bottle of water. Stiff soled shoes are recommended. Bikes and towels are provided.
Lift, Laugh & Lengthen (60 Min)
Previously called “Strength & Stretch”. The first half of class is spent doing vertical (standing) exercises.
This includes various warm-up activities and strength building movements. Training is done both on and
off the wall bars. Exercises are performed slowly with focus and precision using body weight, resistance
bands, small balls and yoga straps. During the second part of the hour we move to the floor and our
attention is on lengthening and stretching our bodies. Improve overall functionality; restore body
balance and activities of daily living become easier. Bring a bottle of water and your own mat if you’d
like. Clean athletic shoes are recommended for the first half of the class. Footwear can be removed
when we move to the floor.
