What:

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. 

Programming Overview:

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.
