[ARCHIVED] Exercise and Strength Training Classes for Seniors to Air on UMA (formerly MATV)

Chair Exercise

There is little doubt that our seniors have been hit particularly hard during the COVID-19 crisis. From their vulnerability of being at greater risk of hospitalization if diagnosed, to little or no interaction with relatives and friends. That has not gotten lost on Mayor Christenson. “During my regular meetings with Mass Senior Action leadership, I am always asked when the Senior Center will reopen,” said Mayor Christenson. “Although we would like it to be sooner, we are hoping to reopen in the fall when most seniors will have been vaccinated and COVID numbers will hopefully be trending downward.”

Another ask has been for programming geared toward seniors to make them feel more connected. Mayor Christenson is pleased to announce that effective Friday, February 5th virtual classes featuring some favorite Senior Center instructors will be aired on UMA (formerly MATV) Monday through Friday at 11AM-1PM. Simply tune in to Comcast Channel 22 and Verizon Channel 26 to enjoy:

  • Tai Chi with Willie Barron
  • Combo Exercises with Aimee Borda
  • Resistance Training with Aimee Borda
  • Fall Prevention strengthening with Sharon Fillyaw
  • Core and Balance with Sharon Fillyaw

Seniors may also call 311 to sign up for reminders of class scheduling so that a reminder will come to their phone before each class.
