Join AARP for a series of Exercise Warm-Ups that will help you to ease into exercising after the holiday season.  This virtual event will be offered on the AARP Nebraska Facebook page at 11am CT on Wednesdays, January 6, January 13, and January 20th.  These exercise sessions will be saved on our facebook page for your viewing pleasure.

 AARP has partnered with Aging Partners/Health and Fitness Educator, Tracie Foreman to provide the following exercise sessions:

1/6 Building Core Strength-As we age, it is important to keep our center or ‘core muscles’ strong. These are the muscles that keep us upright, help us to turn our head from side to side, raise our arms and legs and rotate our spine. Lifetime independence can be achieved with regular practice of these simple core movements.

1/13 Qigong (Chee-gong) for balance- Qigong is an ancient, meditative Chinese practice that focuses on both internal and external strength joined with slow, gentle movements and energizing breath. 

1/20 Simply Fit- Expensive Gyms, high dollar athletic wear or home gym’s that rarely get used…it’s time to reframe our thinking in regards to fitness! Staying fit as we age can be as simple as grabbing a paper plate, a plastic bag and a couple of soup cans out of your cabinet. 
*Bring your own paper plate, plastic grocery bag and can of soup or vegetables to this session for a fun, interactive experience!
