Other Information:
 There are two classes back to back, the first class starts at 10am and the second class starts at 11:30am. Participants must purchase their own weighted leg cuffs and hand-weights that they will learn about during the first day of class. Students must agree to attend class two days a week., bring bottle water to every class, wear supportive shoes with covered toes and heels, and dress for exercise. This is not a drop in class. The purpose of the class is to improve muscle strength, bone density and balance--a slow, steady process that requires continued commitment. It is also a fun time. Please contact Jean Cihlar for registration.
