The School of Allied Health Sciences Department of Kinesiology is offering a free seven-week strength, function and balance class for adults of 50 years of age and older who are looking to improve their physical function. The objective of this class is to improve participants’ functional limitations.
It is designed for those who might be out of the habit of exercising, those who are dealing with chronic conditions or those who simply would like more physical direction delivered in a fun, engaging environment. This class is not designed for highly fit individuals.
Classes will be held 5:15-6:10 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Bronco Gym, room 215, Oct. 16-Dec. 6. The deadline to sign up is 12 p.m. Oct. 18. Participants will be instructed by kinesiology majors who are enrolled in a physical activity and aging course. Participants also will receive an individualized home exercise program following the course.
