What We Offer
We began this ministry on January 20, 2016 with only eight participants. We had started in the Nursery because we were not sure of the number of seniors who would like to have this chance for exercise. We were so please when we had to move out of the Nursery into the West vestibule to accommodate our group on the very first day. The class has been growing since. We have had a total of 33 senior citizens to date and one sophomore (needing to start building up his strength and endurance after surgery). The class averages 14-16 people weekly.
Our session consists of a low impact class emphasizing muscular strength and range of motion to strengthen each of our muscles and joints to the best of our ability. We use chairs, weights, balls and stretch bands to help us achieve our goals. We also work on balance and hand and eye coordination. One of our reminders is to stay hydrated. We encourage drinking lots of water during and after the class. After class we say a prayer to thank God for all He has given us.
We meet each Wednesday after the 8:30 a.m. Mass, for 45 minutes. In case of a funeral, we do not meet that week.
All participants are encouraged to do what you can do! This class is open to everyone who wants to laugh, have fun, and get fit! The class is filled with fun-loving, joyful people!
