Free Seminars and Classes For Ages 60+

NEW WINDSOR – Movement, exercise and socializing is essential to the aging community for so many health reasons. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention loss of strength and stamina attributed to aging is in-part caused by reduced physical activity. By age 75, about one in three men and one in two women engage in no physical activity.

However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the benefits of physical activity help maintain the ability to live independently and reduces risks of: falling, fracturing bones, heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and much more.
In May, Union Avenue Community Fitness Center and Access Physical Therapy will be partnering to bring educational seminars to the fitness center. These seminars and classes are free and open to the public:
