Exercise is a cornerstone of healthy aging, and fitting physical activity into one’s day can improve life in many ways. Regular exercise can improve strength and balance, boost mood and improve memory, and help manage or lessen the impact of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Beacon Hill Village and Cindy Sullivan Fitness will present “Spring into Action” – a special fitness week through March 22. This local event will host special fitness classes for adults age 50 and better! Each class will feature a different form of exercise, offering new and experienced exercisers a variety of classes. The schedule includes:
• Thursday 3/21 – Pilates for Seniors. Learn basic Pilates moves and important exercises to improve flexibility, core and posture.
• Friday – March 22 – Functional Fitness. This fun class will include exercises to improve your “activities of daily living” – functional exercises that support four fitness goals for seniors: endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility.
All classes will be taught by Cindy Sullivan, a Certified In-Home Personal Trainer and Midlife/Senior Fitness Specialist, with the exception of the Thursday’s class, which will be taught by Certified Master Pilates instructor Anne Marie DeGirolamo.
Classes are held in Beacon Hill and Back Bay. For this special week only, class fee will be waived for BHV members and the non-member fee will be reduced to $10 per class.
