Active Aging Adults
There are a number of health benefits that come with maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle as you grow older. In addition to enjoying an overall higher quality of life, staying physically fit as a senior improves blood pressure, decreases the risk of coronary artery disease, decreases the risk of falling, improves quality of sleep, improves cognitive function, decreases rates of depression, improves short-term memory, and decreases the risk of obesity.
These are only some of the classes geared towards Active Seniors. For more details, see our full Group Fitness schedule or contact Carmen Erian, 860-231-6348, firstname.lastname@example.org.
