Senior Activities

Senior Fitness

For the first time in human history most of us are living in an environment that does not require motion and movement for survival.  We move very little compared to our ancestors.  Yet the design of our “normal” bodies remains unchanged.  And that design, both in terms of function and maintenance, depends on continued motion and mobility.  The inability to play golf, tennis, garden or even play with our grandkids is not caused by the passing years or bad equipment – these are symptoms of dysfunction brought on by lack of motion.  I realized that people needed a therapy based, social, and fun setting to move and improve.  The Stretchercize Movement Therapy Program is an exciting, innovative, non-abusive, and socially fun method to improve stiff and sore joints, muscle tightness and weakness  and gain strength.  A major goal is to improve mobility and range of motion.  Instructor: Ken Nelson, LCMT, AMT
