Older Adults Experience Chair Zumba

Recently, over 30 members from the Catholic Charities Best Life Older Adult Center participated in a Chair Zumba class to get some serious exercise in! Chair Zumba is tailored for older adults and offers a fun and effective way to stay active, socialize, and improve overall well-being. Chair Zumba allows participants to raise their heart rate without needing to worry about becoming dizzy or losing their step. It also gives individuals an opportunity to stay off their feet if necessary while building arm, leg, and back muscles safely.

The program, which started in November 2023 with less than 5 members has grown into a thriving community of 30 to 40 active participants in any given class. Older adults interested in joining are welcome on Tuesday and Wednesday at 11:15 a.m. or  Friday at 1:30 p.m. Best Life Older Adult Center is located at 118-35 Farmers Boulevard, (Between 118th Ave. and 119th Ave.), St Albans, New York, 11412. For more information, please call 929-268-3326.
