Southern Idaho Seniors see opportunity to stay in shape

Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Southern Idaho seniors have an opportunity to transform their lifestyle by participating in the Over 60 & Getting Fit classes offered in various towns across the region. The classes are taught in partnership with the Office on Aging at the College of Southern Idaho and are designed to help improve the fitness of seniors over the age of 60. They include a variety of activities such as Zumba, Yoga and Pilates.

"One of my most favorite memories is one of my students came in after having a stroke, and he could not walk from one end of the gym to other." Said Over 60 & Getting Fit Director, Shelly Wright. "His goal was to walk 15 times around the gym by the end of the class, and by the end of the semester he was able to meet his goal."
