Fitness classes good for you

I would like to thank Homer Senior Citizens, Inc. for providing a wide range of excellent health and fitness classes for members and the community: Zumba Gold (Tuesdays at 11 a.m. and Thursdays at 1:30 p.m.),  Strong Women (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 2 p.m.)and T’ai Chi (Thursdays at 3 p.m.). 

Research has shown that exercise is a vital part of a healthy life, and we seniors now have the opportunity to do aerobic exercise (Zumba) and strength training (Strong Women) and T’ai Chi which focuses on many areas including balance, coordination, memory, and core strength.

Excellent instructors make sure that the classes are inclusive and benefit everyone — some students are very fit and others need accommodations or modifications for physical issues. 

We all improve our health and have fun. 

Sign me: A way-more-fit senior than I would otherwise be without the senior center’s classes.
