(Alexandria, MN) Beginning August 3rd, 2016, residents of Ecumen Bethany Community began participating in a new on-site fitness program conducted by a Certified Personal Trainer from Live 2 B Healthy®. Three times each week, Independent Living residents will participate in a senior fitness class that supports their commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Each participant’s fitness is assessed quarterly against a baseline test. Many studies have concluded that regular exercise allows senior citizens to improve balance and reduce falling; control weight and diabetes; lower risk of heart disease and stroke; improve sleeping and eating habits; improve cognitive skills and even reduce medication.
Classes are being held Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00-10:45am.
The fitness program is offered at no charge to the residents of Ecumen Bethan Community in Alexandria, MN. Visitors of all ability levels are welcome to join the class. Please call 320.762.1567 for further information.
Live 2 B Healthy® is an industry leader in senior fitness because of their age-specific exercises, nationally certified trainers, consistent on-site programs and class design that focuses on both results and enjoyable socialization.
