Enhanced Fitness Class for Senior Adults Draws Attention

Julie Ebenstein
Senior Neighbors offered it's first Fitness Class in Comstock Park and the community responded.  Seventeen senior adults showed up this morning for an open house and first fitness session.  The group will continue meet at 10:00 A.M. Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at Greenridge Elementary School, 3825 Oakridge Ave NW, Comstock Park.  Comstock Park Schools administration was very gracious in  allowing the building to be used for this community event and is encouraging more participation.  Senior Neighbors brought their program to Comstock Park after collaborating with the Comstock Park Community Outreach.  Participants enjoyed the first session and also had the opportunity to connect with other seniors in the area.  According to Julie Lake, Program Coordinator with Senior Neighbors, many first attempts at bringing the program to local communities result in perhaps half a dozen participants but when the word gets out will quickly fill to capacity.  Instructor Julie Ebenstein was very excited about the great turnout and is looking for more people to join the group. Come when you can!
