It feels like a breath of spring air to to re-open doors and welcome participants back to the Aging Partners Senior Centers and Fitness Center. The last two years has brought alternative types of programming and new ways to expand community offerings to meet community health challenges.
Aging Partners Health and Fitness has worked with LNKTV Health to increase viewing options for those interested in adding extra minutes to their fitness routines. A wide variety of 10-minute, 30-minute and one hour exercise routines are available on Aging Partners’ YouTube channel.
