TEMECULA – The City of Temecula Community Services Department will present a free “Senior Talk” lecture on Monday, Dec. 14, from 10-11a.m., at the Mary Phillips Senior Center located at 41845 6th St. in Old Town Temecula. “Senior Talk” is a monthly series where knowledgeable speakers provide expertise and give educational information on physical and mental issues, current events, social issues, and more.
The December lecture will feature Francesca Fisher, Certified Senior Strength Training Specialist from Geri-Fit Company LLC, sharing Ten Strength Training Exercises That Will Make You Stronger.
Many seniors are under the impression that walking and upper body strength training exercises are enough to keep them healthy and strong. However, the muscles in the lower body are in the most need of strength training. Join Francesca Fisher for a 40 minute informative talk, followed by a 20 minute question and answer session to learn more about strength training exercises.
