CITY RECREATION CENTER OPENING A 9AM CLASS TIME FOR
STAY FIT OVER 50 PROGRAM – FREE WEEK TRIAL OFFERED FOR NEW PARTICIPANTS
PLATTSBURGH- The City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department will be opening another twice-a-week class to its “Stay Fit Over 50” program. The program is geared towards adults over 50 who are active and want to stay active. Participants will be put through a one hour long session two times a week consisting of functional strength training, light agility and mobility work, and balance exercises.
“With Baby Boomers hitting their 60s and 70s, we want to help them continue to stay active and healthy”, said Ted Santaniello, Fitness Supervisor at the City Recreation Center. “Mobility and lateral agility are some of the most common issues that we see this generation having trouble with at this point in their lives. There are ways to strengthen the hips and condition postural muscles that will drastically improve performance in every day activities as well as recreational sports such as Pickleball, golf, tennis, etc.”
“Due to the high demand for the program we decided to open up yet another class time in order to serve more participants. This is the second time we have expanded the program.” said Brady Burleigh, program instructor and Personal Trainer at the City Recreation Center. “The current participants in both our Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday 10 A.M. sections have made significant improvements in their strength, balance, and coordination. We are looking forward to welcoming a new group of people and helping them achieve their fitness goals.”
The newly added class will be Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 A.M. and will start March 5th. Participants can register for the program at the City Recreation Center on 52 US Oval.
The program will cost $29 per month. Ask at the front desk to redeem your free one-week trial before signing up. No commitment required for trial.
City of Plattsburgh implements a variety of fitness and recreation programs and maintains seventeen parks throughout the city as well as the Municipal Beach, the Crete Memorial Civic Center, and the City Recreation Center.
