EXERCISE Spring 2019 registration

SPRING EXERCISE SESSION  —  Starts Monday, 3/18 through 5/23


Consider joining an exercise class or two each week at St. Andrew’s. Fitness contributes to everyone’s well-being – especially for older adults. Regular exercise can help control your blood pressure, body weight, and cholesterol levels. It reduces your risk of hardened arteries, heart attack, and stroke. It also strengthens your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones to help fight osteoporosis and lowers your risk of falling. Keeping your body strong and limber can help you maintain your independence as you age. It allows you to continue the kinds of activities you’ve enjoyed your entire life.  And just as important, there’s a sense of fun and good friendships. And if that’s not enough, all proceeds go to benefit the ministries of St. Andrew’s.  I invite you to take your first class for FREE to see what it’s all about. Contract Barbara Hansen at 609-706-3552 or for more information.

Class Schedule:
Mondays, 7 p.m. – Tai Chi/Qi Gong
Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. – Pilates         Tuesday, 6 p.m.: Dance/Kick/Punch – Cardio
Thursday, 6 p.m. – Yoga               Thursdays, 7 p.m. – Tai Chi/Qi Gong

Classes Cost $10 Per Class
