From the voice of experience: New equipment is greatPublished 6:00am Saturday, January 31, 2009
During the past few months, I have frequently written about our new state-of-the-art exercise equipment at the Senior Center.
Today I write from experience. I have tried the machines myself. Prior to using the equipment, it is necessary to attend a brief orientation with a professional trainer. Last Tuesday morning I was part of an orientation group of seven women and one gentleman. Chris, the trainer, introduced us to each machine, explaining its purpose as well as how to use it.
The use of exercise machines was not entirely foreign to me as I had had some experience previously, but I was absolutely and positively impressed with all of the various types of equipment Tuesday. We had an opportunity to try some of the machines after the orientation and I am convinced — they really are user friendly.
If you are at all interested in an exercise program, it is well worth your checking out this equipment. It is available to Senior Center memers.
Stop in the office to complete the necessary forms.
I realize everyone may not be into exercise but to avoid cabin fever in a more sedentary manner, how about attending Board Game Day at the Senior Center?
On Monday, Feb. 2, at 1 p.m. we will be getting out a variety of board games such as Scrabble, Sorry, Dominos and many more. The games are fun and so is the socializing.
The Red Hats are gathering for breakfast at 9:30 on Thursday, Feb. 5, at Debbie’s Kitchen. Please register in the office. (736-5842)
For some timely financial advice, join us next Tuesday at 11:30 for a seminar, “Crisis in the Market: What to Do Now.” Jackie Maethner, Financial Adviser, Stock Broker at Willow Financial Services will present.
On Monday, the 9th, it is movie time at 12:45 p.m. The feature is “Meet Joe Black,” which is described as “a romantic fantasy.” Enjoy this film on our new big screen.
Last, but certainly not least, the January issue of The Golden Page which includes the writing of half of our Adopt-a-Class students is available in the office. You will recall the other half of the class was featured in the Christmas/New Year issue.
As always, the writing of these students covers a variety of interesting topics.
