Milo Rec. Dept. offering Senior Exercise Program

October 31, 2009 - TRC - By Richard Martin, Recreation Director

The Milo Recreation Department in collaboration with Friends of Community Fitness in Sangerville will be offering an Enhanced Fitness Program for older adults beginning Monday, November 16th through Monday, December 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at the Community Room at Pleasant Park.

EFP is an evidence-based program out of Seattle, Washington, designed specifically for older adults - focusing on flexibility, strength and balance.

Regular exercise improves energy metabolism, increases muscular strength, reduces the risk of injury and slows down bone loss as we age.

Light hand weights are required. All other equipment will be provided

Classes will be limited to the first twenty-five (25) senior citizens to sign up. Classes will continue through December on Mondays.

This FREE program will be led by instructor Cindy Herbest, well known local exercise instructor, who is graciously donating her time for free for our local seniors. Thank you, Cindy !

For those individuals that want to increase the programs benefits, there will be a second class offered at the Milo Town Hall on Wednesdays, November 18 through December 30, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m..

$10.00 for the 7 week sessions on Wednesday.
