Faith and Fitness Class – a 6-week program that will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays in Fellowship Hall and will be approximately 60-90 minutes in duration. This 6-week program will take place between the months of February and March.
These classes are intended for those individuals that may answer yes to any of these 3 questions:
· Do you use a cane or a walker?
· Do you feel unsteady on your feet?
· Have you fallen in the past year?
This will not be a high impact exercise class. It will be offered to get people moving and offer some strengthening exercises to help prevent falls. Emphasis will be placed on flexibility, balance and core strength. Each routine will offer a modification to meet the ability of the participant. The first class will include an overview of terminology, such as the importance of warm up, cool down, sets, reps, etc. Physical activity will most likely be 30-45 minutes.
The program will also offer informal devotional time. This devotional time can include a time of thanks, prayer requests, perhaps a reading from Portals of Prayers or a short inspirational story from Guidepost. Participants could also reflect on their favorite Bible passage and why it means so much to them. Simply, a time of thanks and sharing what makes us faithful.
