Mill City Quarter Club Room

Learn strength and balance exercises to improve your health and wellness! Siobhan McMahon, RN, is the lead researcher in a University of Minnesota study, “Ready Steady: A Wellness Program.” The objective of this study is to determine how best to promote physical activity, particularly things that improve balance and leg strength, among older adults. In this first session, McMahon will present an overview of factors that increase the chances of falling, and then demonstrate and guide us through four to five balance movements. In the second session on August 21, she’ll review those movements, add a couple more and talk about her research project. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You don’t need to attend both sessions to participate.
