The weather is getting nice, and the active older adults participating in our Water Exercise Training (WET) are shaking off the cold at Andrews Pool in the Student Recreation Center. The Department of Recreation and Wellness is proud to be partnering with the Healthways SilverSneackers® Fitness program to offer a variety of activities designed especially for older adults.
Participants are building muscular endurance and joint flexibility in our WET class, and learning breathing exercises and different meditation styles in our Gentle Chair Yoga class.
The ever changing Bowling Green weather does not stop our members from getting in their daily exercise, Older Adult Fitness participants are also enjoying walks around the track at the Perry Filed House, a swimming during open pool hours, along with Pickleball with friends.
Exercise has a variety of health benefits including help in improving your balance, managing and improving diseases and helping to reduce feelings of depression.
Take advantage of these specially designed classes and activities, best of all if you are a SilverSneakers member, all of these activities are at no charge to you. We look forward to seeing you at the next class.
