Seated Senior Fitness – Tuesdays, 11:00 at the COA

This seated fitness class is a total body workout that will help you build up muscle strength and improve the mobility of joints and balance. We will start with a gentle warm-up, followed by strength training exercises for all the major muscle groups of the body using resistance bands, balls and handheld weights, as well as standing balance exercises for those who are able. We will conclude the class with stretching exercises to increase flexibility and relax the body.
