PHH initiates exercise class to help Seniors maintain flexibility, strength

Parkview Huntington Hospital will offer a Senior exercise class starting on Friday, Dec. 1.

The class, open to anyone age 50 and older, will meet weekly on Fridays at 10 a.m. in the classrooms on the lower level of the hospital. It will be led by an exercise specialist from the hospital’s Adult Fitness Center.

The goal of the class is to help participants maintain or increase their flexibility and strength. A wide variety of exercises that can be done while seated, or using a chair for support, will enable adults to participate no matter what their fitness level. The exercise specialist can help each participant modify the exercises as needed.

Participants are asked to bring a resistance band, if they already have one, and to dress in supportive shoes and comfortable clothing that allows movement.

The Senior exercise class is free to members of the Parkview Seniors Club and the Parkview Huntington Hospital Adult Fitness Center. All other participants pay a fee per class. Payment – in the form of cash or check – can be made on the day of the class.

Registration is required prior to first-time attendance. To register, call 355-3240.
