Active Seniors

Did you know?  Older adult functioning is positively influenced by weight training?

There is also an improvement in balance and they are able to ascend and descend the stairs faster. Increase your strength and improve your balance through trainer directed use of hand weights, strength machines and chair-assisted exercises.
