This class is performed from a seating position and can be accomplished by all. The class consists of stretching, resistance training, isometric holds, and basic coordination exercises.

Senior Strength, Stability, and Balance

This class incorporates all of the above plus some standing balance exercises and very light aerobic work. The resistance training hits all major muscle groups and may utilize hand held weights or resistance bands.

Both classes are designed to improve muscle strength, joint stability, and joint range of movement. The result of this will be improved posture and ability to perform activities of daily living.
