Strength & Stretch Class (Non-Cancer Patient)
As we age we lose muscle mass, bone strength and a sense of balance. Functional fitness focuses on keeping individuals independent as long as possible. Frequent exercise can help relieve arthritis pain, reduce the risk of falling and lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to the CDC. Body weight exercise will be incorporated to target overall strength, balance, flexibility and core conditioning.
Tubing may be used and balance exercises may be used combining the body weight training and core strength.
