Free Senior Fitness Workshop

Tuesday, September 16, 2014
9:00 AM
West Suburban YMCA, 276 Church Street, Newton

We know about benefits of exercise, but is it safe for seniors older than 60 years to exercise? Absolutely.  According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, almost all older people can benefit from additional physical activity. Regular exercise provides a myriad of health benefits, including improvements in blood pressure, diabetes, lipid profile, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and cognitive functioning. It can also help protect against chronic disease, improve your mood and lower your chances of injury by improving your balance, coordination and strength.
