Current Group Fitness Classes
Balance classes are offered through a 12-week program that requires pre-registration. If you are at risk for a fall or have fallen or have a condition that affects your balance, this is the class for you. Participants will learn how to maintain their center of gravity, how to take sturdy, purposeful steps rather than short, choppy ones, how to recover from a loss of balance and how to safely get up from a chair. At the end of the 12-week program, participants will increase their confidence, stability and independence. An Advanced Balance class is also offered for those who wish to continue making progress.
