Free Strength, Function and Balance Class Returns Oct. 5

By: danyalusk   Published 9:19 am / September 27, 2017

If you are 50 years of age or older or have functional limitations and want to improve your physical function and reduce fall risk, the School of Allied Health Sciences’ Department of Kinesiology has a free exercise class for you.

Functional limitations cause you to experience difficulty with normal activities of daily living, such as walking, balance, limited strength, etc.

This eight-week, two-days-per-week class will include strength, physical function and balance exercises. At the end of the class, each person will receive a home exercise program tailored to his or her needs. The class will be led by kinesiology majors enrolled in the Physical Activity and Aging course.

The class will meet from 5:10 -6:10 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays from Oct. 5-Dec. 7 in Bronco Gym Room 215. The deadline to sign up is Oct. 5. For more information or to register, contact the kinesiology department at 426-4270 or Terry-Ann Spitzer Gibson at 426-1509. You may also email tgibson@boisestate.edu.

Please note that this class is for those who want to get back into exercising, individuals with balance issues or chronic conditions, and for those who just want to attend and have fun. This class is not designed for highly fit participants.
