Saturdays for Seniors is a monthly fitness session led by a licensed physical therapist (PT) to focus on various aspects of physical health. These hour-long sessions will take place at 11AM via virtual platform (Zoom). The PT will make every attempt to modify movements to minimize risk of injury.
Participants can ask questions in the chat box, and the last 10 minutes of each class will feature an “Ask A PT” segment. Because this is a group fitness class and not a formal physical therapy session, the physical therapists will not be providing specific medical advice. The PTs recommend that participants consult with a physician if there are any medical related questions. Participants are welcome to schedule a PT visit with any of the PTs that lead a session after consultation with their physician.
Each session will start with stretching. Most activities can be done either sitting or standing near a chair. The PTs ask that participants keep a glass of water nearby to stay hydrated.
