Older adults in Lake Elsinore now have the opportunity to participate in an evidence-based strength-training group exercise program with Geri-Fit®. Classes will be held at the Lake Elsinore Senior Center, 420 E. Lakeshore Dr., on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. An introductory free session is offered on Wednesday, July 6th with the regular program be-ginning Monday, July 11.
Geri-Fit® is a 45-minute exercise program designed to build back strength that’s been lost through the aging process. The program also works on fall prevention, balance training, flexibility and range of motion. Any senior age 65 and over is welcome to participate.
Harris is excited about teaching in Lake Elsinore, her second Geri-Fit® location. “What I like best about the classes is how quickly our ‘students’ begin to feel better. Within a few weeks, they’re al-ready noticing improvements in strength, flexibility and balance,” she says.
Participants should bring a set of 2 or 3-pound dumbbell weights and water to drink. Space is lim-ited to the first 25 seniors who sign up. The class is $48 for eight sessions.
Register at the Senior Center, Monday – Friday, 8am to 4pm. For questions about registration, call 951-674-252. For class information, contact Lisa Harris at 951-533-2612.
