ActivAge 65+ Programs - Sept 21. to Dec. 7

Are you wanting to get more physically active?
This fun and social program led by Vivian Thickett, will get you moving
in a relaxed and inviting class environment with like minded people.
You have two different program options to choose from:
Option 1 every Wednesday, from 9 am to 10 am, focuses on improving activities
of daily living, strengthening muscles used day-to-day.

Option 2 every Wednesday, from 10 am to 11 am, focuses on exercises that will
enable you to become more involved with other activity programs or sports.

Both classes include discussions and handouts to help you improve your overall health and well being.
ActivAge is FREE of charge, BUT participants must register at the Complex, in person, or by phoning 604 485-2891. Classes are small, so register early.
