Senior fitness program at Arlington Place
POCAHONTAS – Residents at Arlington Place Pocahontas have an opportunity to participate in a free on-site fitness program conducted by certified personal trainers from Live 2 B Healthy.
Three times each week, up to 25 seniors will participate in a guided exercise class. These classes are offered to the residents free of charge from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All ability levels are welcome to join the class.
Each participant’s fitness is assessed three times per year against a baseline test. Many studies have concluded that regular exercise allows senior citizens to improve balance and reduce falling; control weight and diabetes; lower risk of heart disease and stroke; improve sleeping and eating habits; improve cognitive skills and even reduce medication.
The senior fitness classes at Arlington Place are also open to the public. Please call Lauri Fulkerth at (712)335-3020 for more information on registration and class times.
Live 2 B Healthy uses age-specific exercises lead by nationally certified trainers in on-site programs that focus on both results and enjoyable socialization.
