Experts from the Outpatient Physical Therapy and Fitness Center of Augusta Health (Ashley Kane and Sharon Stiteler) worked together to provide an exercise session at Staunton Senior Center earlier this week.
Ten members took advantage of the new program which will be presented once a month by staff from these two branches of AH.
The group exercises aim to help keep seniors better balanced and stronger and will incorporate methods such as Tai Chi for variety and cross-training benefits. Classes will last approximately forty minutes and include warm-up, exercise focused on standing balance and resistance training, and cool-down. The ultimate goal is to train staff at the Center to be able to lead these group exercises, adding to already existing programs at SSC so that the Center can offer a more diverse exercise regimen!
