New Program! Fun & Functional Fitness
Mondays, 9 a.m. Beginning

This six-week grant funded class is designed to introduce people to basic functional movements, focusing on building a body capable of doing real-life activities in real-life positions. Everyday movements such as balancing, walking, lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, turning, standing, starting, stopping, climbing, and lunging will be made easier while training to improve functional strength. There will be special considerations provided for people with physical limitations (such as arthritis). Another component will be incorporating fun cognitive actives throughout the class. Set to up-beat music, the class, designed for all levels, will also introduce sedentary individuals back into performing and functioning at a more healthy level. Class size is limited and first time participants will have preference. Please stop by the center or call Melissa Rezek at 508-478-6175 to register.

She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She became one of the first delegates to The United Nations and one of the top ten most admired people of the 20th century.
