LAKE ELSINORE – Older adults in Lake Elsinore now have the opportunity to participate in an evidence-based strength-training group exercise program with Geri-Fit. Classes will be held at the Lake Elsinore Senior Center, 420 E. Lakeshore Drive, Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m.
An introductory free session is offered Wednesday, July 6, with the regular program beginning Monday, July 11.
Geri-Fit is a 45-minute exercise program designed to build back strength that’s been lost through the aging process. The program also works on fall prevention, balance training, flexibility and range of motion. Any senior age 65 and over is welcome to participate.
Lisa Harris from Geri-Fit is excited about teaching in Lake Elsinore, her second location. “What I like best about the classes is how quickly our ‘students’ begin to feel better. Within a few weeks, they’re already noticing improvements in strength, flexibility and balance,” she says.
Participants should bring a set of two or 3-pound dumbbell weights and water to drink. Space is limited to the first 25 seniors who sign up. The class is $48 for eight sessions.
Register at the Senior Center, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For questions about registration, or class information, contact Lisa Harris at (951) 533-2612.
