  1. Start a Micro Senior Group Exercise Class for Fully Vaccinated Seniors

    Older adults that are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are ready to start doing activities of pre-pandemic days.  The CDC has advised that once you are fully vaccinated you can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.  You don't have to live in an assisted living facility or retirement community to start or join a Senior Group Exercise Class.  If your friends have been fully vaccinated try something different than joining a large exercise class.   Create your own Micro Senior Group Exercise Class with 3-5 group members.  You can take turns hosting the Micro Group Exercise Class and turn it into a social engagement that focuses on health and wellness.

  3. Aquatic Therapy

    Summer time is here to stay with record breaking temperatures and what better way to cool off than jumping in a pool. Being in the water has more benefits than just cooling down and having fun. People from all around the world use water as a form of exercise and therapy. People with muscle and joint pain often find exercising unpleasant and turn to water therapy as a relief. The largest benefit of doing water therapy and exercises is that when you’re submerged in deep water, you unload 90% of your body weight through water buoyancy1. By decreasing the amount of joint stress it is easier and less painful to perform exercises. People with a weight problem often find working out in water pleasant as the water environment soothes and supports their muscles and joints while staying cool.
