Program Offers for Seniors Free Workouts to Encourage Movement
Village provides free gym instructions to help seniors feel comfortable using gym equipment and resources
The other thing I was thinking was the Savvy Seniors, so we’ve had assistance from the Village and the regional district to offer free [exercise] in a center time and gym time with an instructor and to introduce them to a fitness regime and then once they feel comfortable, then they could get a membership at the fitness center. So it was sort of a group plan and that’s been really helpful I think….We’re trying to work that center with the, so that now it could be fitness September to June and then the swimming pool would open and they could go into the morning swim or the pool, also the fitness center if they have a membership. So that was a unique program that was started.
