Get Fit While You Sit
Our Get Fit While You Sit program has grown in popularity over the last several years that is accessible through our Wellness Center. Our program is a fun and energetic, yet easy-to-do class where all activities and movements are done sitting down. The Get Fit While You Sit program is geared at muscle toning and is also designed to improve mobility, decrease pain and help control blood pressure. Staying active is vital for increased mobility and can prevent any further health setbacks.
