Power Lifting for Seniors

Planning for retirement is about more than your financial health, it should be about your physical health too.  The American College of Sports Medicine highly recommends weight training for women and men over the age of 50 to help maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.  This class is designed to provide the 50+ set with instruction in basic power lifting activities that are both safe and progressive.

Core Work & Flexibility

The lower abdominals and spinal para-spinals are the powerhouse of the trunk, so naturally these are the CORE focus of this class! We will work on deep pelvic and low back stabilizing muscles while extending through the trunk and extremities. Flexibility will be a main focus but there is nothing passive about this class, and the participant should expect to strength and lengthen. This class is great for dancers or anyone who wants to improve their core strength, posture and flexibility.
