The weights may be lighter, and the moves are modified, but these active residents are staying strong and fit with Senior Fitness classes offered around the county!
From stretching and strength training to yoga, seniors can find a range of fitness classes that are perfect for any level. As they say, it’s never too late to get fit. As 93-year-old Chevy Chase resident Joe Holmes explained, “I feel stronger since I started taking classes. I now work out 3 times a week and I have arm muscles again!”
We stopped into the Holiday Park Senior Center recently to check out a weight training class.
Participants use light weights to build strength, and use the wall and chairs for stretching and balance moves - including holding a plank position! Trained instructors can help participants modify moves when necessary so they feel comfortable.
For more information on fitness classes for seniors and specifically those held at the Holiday Park Senior Center visit the website http://holidaypark.us/ or call 240-777-4999.
