Lifetime Fitness

Once the process of aging starts, everything seems to get tougher to do! Walking, lifting things, playing with grandchildren - all of these become challenges.  So, how do you keep up with things you love to do? Remaining physically active is the key.
At Little House, we encourage you to do just that.  Mary Furuta conducts Lifetime Fitness classes twice a week at Little House.
Lifetime Fitness exercises train your body in a way that will enable you to perform your daily tasks with ease. It aims at providing the following benefits to your body:
1. Flexibility
2. Muscle Strengthening
3. Balance
4. Improved blood circulation
5. Maintaining posture
6. Resistance building
7. Increased endurance and stamina
8. Improved range of motion
The class begins with warm-ups, followed by a round of exercises, which are designed to provide the all those benefits to your feet, knees, ankles, shoulders and elbows. The instructor gives personalized attention to every participant and there are constant instructions.
But, what if you have never set foot in a fitness center? Would you be able to fit in?
Well, Lifetime Fitness is not a typical fitness class. The exercises are tailored to your body type and you can go at your own speed. The best part: classes end with some dancing, like the hustle or mambo. The classes are light, yet highly effective. They are serious workouts with a tinge of fun.
Aging is not under your control but aging gracefully is! Don't give in to the challenges of aging. Take the first step to enjoying your golden years. And remember, once you start working out; make sure that you keep going, since regular exercises will reap maximum benefits.
Wait no more. Give yourself the gift of Lifetime Fitness!
