Look into Healthy Bones and Balance

Published: 1/20/2020 9:32:57 AM

I am writing to thank the Recorder, specifically, Zack DeLuca, for the recent article about the Healthy Bones and Balance classes held in Northfield (Friday, Jan. 10).

Thanks to this article, enrollment in the class more than doubled, with new participants commenting on how much they enjoyed the class. It bears repeating that Healthy Bones and Balance classes are taught by volunteers who complete a training and certification process through RSVP. Classes are held in many towns throughout the Pioneer Valley, from Northfield down to Agawam. Classes offer a wide range of benefits beyond the exercises taught. I urge seniors who wish to explore ways to improve balance and strength or who are looking for a new activity to enjoy with others to look into HBB classes offered in their town.
