Jim and Pat Davison ready and "weighting" for the Enhance Fitness class to begin at Waitsburg Town Hall.

Instructor Melissa Lambert teaches three one-hour fitness classes on non-consecutive days to folks in Waitsburg who are 60 years old and older. A low-cost, evidence-based group exercise and falls prevention program, the class helps older adults at all levels of fitness become more active, energized, and empowered to sustain independent lives. Each class focuses on dynamic cardiovascular exercise, strength training, balance, and flexibility - everything older adults need to maintain health and function as they age.

Ms. Lambert reached her class limit of 25 participants on Monday but is willing to add sign-ups for an additional class if there is enough interest from the community. Grant funding for the classes have been provided by Aging and Long-Term Care of Southeast Washington out of Yakima, as well as the Falls Prevention Coalition of Washington State. The classes are held at the Waitsburg Town Hall. Interested participants can reach Ms. Lambert at ef@peaknorthwest.com.
