Theresa Powers getting ready to lead the Young at Heart class.

Along with good nutrition, exercise is an important part of successful living. Keeping muscles toned has also been proven to prevent falls. Young at Heart is an exercise program offered three times a week at the Powerhouse Gym in Gaylord. Targeted toward older adults (age 60 and older), but designed for all ages, it combines gentle aerobics and light weights. Certified exercise instructors and assistants provide the leadership for this program. No gym membership is needed to attend, and walk-ins are welcomed.

Young at Heart exercise classes are scheduled as follows:

Days: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
Time: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Cost: $3.00 per class
Location:  Powerhouse Gym
     1044 W. Main St.
