Fall Prevention - Moving for Better Balance
Through guided instruction you will learn how to balance and stay upright through daily activities. We will challenge your stability as you actively walk, step, reach, bend, and so much more. In this 4 week program, we will start with simple movements to set up a baseline of balance for each individual and then move to more challenging patterns as your body progresses. By only requiring a mat and a chair for this program, the sky’s the limit for who can partake. Whether you are at home, or want to come in person, whether you want to protect yourself from falling, advance your movements, or simply be able to stand on one foot, then this program is for you.
Complimentary for our members. All beginning exercisers are encouraged to take advantage of this private session with a member of the wellness team. During the meeting, wellness staff will help you set your wellness goals, share a menu of wellness options and design a program that meets your objectives, interests, and lifestyle. Complete the interest form - Save and email to TPeasley@wwymca.org, or drop off at the Y.
After you have your FitStart appointment scheduled, complete the first 3 questions of this form, print and bring with you.
InBody - Body Composition Testing
Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components such as water, fat, and muscle. To thoroughly learn about your body and its condition, take the InBody test. In less than 30 seconds the InBody will reveal your body fat percentage, muscle distribution, and body water balance. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet and d not let your hard work go to waste. Talk to us about specific steps that should be followed prior to your test.
