Chair Exercise - Daily

Staying healthy is one thing we all strive for.  We all know how important daily exercise is toward achieving that goal.  It can, however, be more difficult as we age.  For some of us, physical constraints, aches and pains may prevent us from the exercise we need.  That's why the Swansea Council on Aging offers a chair exercise program daily.  These exercises are gentle but effective.  Improve your flexibility while increasing muscle strength.  These sessions are held Monday - Friday at 10:30 AM.

Cost - FREE

Fitness DVD Series

How can we be sure our fitness programs meet your needs?  It's simple - We'll give you a variety of formats to choose from!  We are pleased to inform you that (through grant funding received from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs) the COA has purchased a 60" television and a variety of fitness DVDs for your enjoyment.  Whether you prefer to work out alone, with a couple of your closest friends or as part of a group session, the Swansea COA introduces "Stronger Seniors".   This series of DVDs includes "Stretch & Strength", "Core Fitness - Chair Exercise" and "Yoga".  

We will also include "Jane Fonda:  Prime-time:  Fit & Strong". If DVDs aren't for you, wii (pronounced 'we') just may challenge you to a game of tennis or a little bowling on our Nintendo Wii.  Come join the fun!  To learn more or to register, please call (508) 676-1831.
