Antrim: Strong Living senior exercise program returns to The Grapevine

Published: 9/9/2021 2:37:21 PM

The Grapevine’s Strong Living Exercise Program for seniors resumes this year and meets Tuesdays and Fridays at the Grapevine in Antrim. The Strong Living Exercise Program was created in 1995, derived from a research study at Tufts University.  The community-based program was developed to promote opportunities for older adults to increase their physical activity, while also connecting with peers in a social atmosphere.  The exercise program helps participants improve levels of balance, strength, and fitness in a low-impact way. Focus is on arms, legs, joint mobility and ways to help maintain activities of daily living, such as walking up stairs, reaching high shelves, opening and lifting safely, and dressing.

Pam Veenstra of Antrim, who has been a part of the group for three years, said it has really changed her quality of life.

“Exercise is not me,” she said. “I’ve never been into it, and I don’t really do group things either.  But I gave this a shot, and it’s been a wonderful experience.  We all have a great time together and I just love this group of people.  I’ve lost 35 pounds since the time I joined.”  

The Strong Living Exercise Program is for any senior member of the community.  Please call The Grapevine at 588-2620 for more information, exact dates and times, and to register.
