“Thank you for providing the Senior Gentle Chair Fitness class. I have participated in the twice a week class since January. On my first day, I was only able to complete 10 minutes of class and only able to walk 3 laps around the gym. After 3 months, I am able to complete the entire 60 minutes of gentle exercise and walk 15 laps without a problem. This class has also helped to improve my balance and lower body strength.” — Patrick, program participant
