Talking with my seniors today after exercise class
Posted Nov 04 2009 10:04pm
Today was a small class. Those who did come worked hard. We did 30 minutes of standing leg strength and balance movements. Then 25 minutes of seated flexibility work.
We discussed after class the reasons that we are all there. I explained that my job is to help them reduce falls, build strength, endurance and increase their flexibility which all help them do their daily activities easier.
Their reason for coming is to help maintain their independence, and keep active. They also enjoy the camaraderie, and class is fun. The last two are a bonus.
