Exercise and physical activity increase your body’s natural resilience and help you meet the unexpected challenges of daily life. Building your balance allows you to recover from a loss of balance and prevent a fall. Building and maintaining mobility improves your ability to reach, bend and turn. Improving your posture increases the amount of weight and forces your spine can manage.
Circuit class incorporates use of weights and bands, as well as body weight and balance exercises, for full body strengthening program that emphasis on proper form, specific movements that assist with everyday activities and fall prevention.
