Free Balance, Strength and Physical Function Class for Adults 50 and Older

The School of Allied Health Sciences Department of Kinesiology is offering a free eight-week strength, function and balance class for adults aged 50 and older who are looking to improve their physical function. The objective of this class is to improve participants’ functional limitations and reduce their risk of falling.

It is designed for those who might be out of the habit of exercising, those who are dealing with chronic conditions or those who simply would like more physical direction delivered in a fun, engaging environment. This class is not designed for highly fit individuals.

Classes will be held 5:15-6:10 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Bronco Gym, room 215, Feb. 21-April 30. The deadline to sign up is noon on Feb. 20. Participants will be instructed by kinesiology majors who are enrolled in a physical activity and aging course. Participants also will receive an individualized home exercise program following the course.

For more information or to sign up, please contact Terry-Ann Spitzer Gibson at (208) 426-1509 or tgibson@boisestate.edu.
