SAIL Stay Active for Independent Living Ages 65+ Exercise, free at Antrim Town Hall
The Grapevine Community Center and Antrim Recreation Department are collaborating to bring a free exercise program geared to adults 65 and older,
though anyone who thinks they could benefit from a program focusing on balance, conditioning and strength is welcome to attend.
Registration is through The Grapevine, you can call at 603-588-2620, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The class is free. Participants need properly fitting sneakers, a water bottle, and if you have your own ankle/wrist weights in 2-4 (max 5) pounds, bring those as well!
This will be an ongoing program. The class, for now, is Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:30. We are inquiring to see how people would like a Monday, Wednesday and Friday class, 10:30-11:30 am.
What to Expect in a SAIL Class
One hour of exercise, two or three times per week • Classes are taught by a qualified instructor. • You can sit or stand. Exercises are adapted for all levels of physical ability. • Exercises are specifically designed to help maintain and improve your balance. • All participants receive a copy of Stay Active and Independent for Life: An Information Guide for Adults 65+.
How Can I Get the Most from This Class?
• Make sure that you have eaten before attending class. • Keep hydrated. Drink plenty of water during the class. • Try to arrive early. That way you are not out of breath before the class starts. • Wear flexible, supportive rubber-soled shoes and loose fitting clothing. • Refrain from wearing perfume, aftershave or scented personal care products. • Make an effort to attend as many classes as possible.
The best way to benefit from exercise is to exercise regularly!
