Senior fitness class offered by Douglas

Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department is offering free senior fitness classes for people 55 years of age and over. The objective is to increase motivation, stamina, flexibility and strength, while making fitness a fun habit.

The senior fitness class meets from 8 to 9 a.m. each Tuesday at Kahle Community Center, 236 Kingsbury Grade. All participants must present a note from their doctor permitting them to exercise.

The class is taught by Andrea Adams, a certified personal trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine, with a special focus on post-rehabilitation.

“Come join us for an hour of fun, fitness and learning. Have all your fitness questions answered from ‘what shoes should I wear?’ to ‘what’s a rep and how many should I do,” Adams said.

Students will learn the proper use of weight room equipment with regard to body alignment and mechanics. After 20 to 30 minutes of various cardiovascular exercises — there are lots of ways to get that heart rate up — resistance exercises and weight training will be taught through proper form and technique. The class ends with a cool down and gentle stretching.

For more information call Kahle Community Center at (775) 586-7271.
