A new fitness class is starting in January on Thursdays from 1 – 1:45 p.m. beginning January 12 for 7 classes. Body 360 is for men and women who would like to incorporate stretching, flexibility and balance into one class. Tight muscles contribute to back pain or difficulty performing everyday tasks. Poor balance increases your risk for falls. If you have been inactive due to an injury, are recovering from surgery, or are active and want to stay active, you will want to take this class. The exercises will be standing, in chairs and some mat work. The cost is $21 for residents and $28 for non-residents.

Registration for our January-February class session begins with resident registration on Tuesday, December 13 at 8:30 a.m. Non-residents may register one week later.
