The Ag Extension has a new, free fitness program running around the County of Grimes. It’s called Texercize, and it’s dedicated to keeping senior citizens on their feet and active in their golden years.
And, while it’s directed at our aging population, the extension’s Latisha Hardy says the weekly class is open to anyone interested in low intensity and low impact training.
Those who have attended the class, she continues, have experienced more mobility and strength.
The problem of atrophy is a real one, hardy tells Navasota News. People are trying to get healthy, but don’t realize that a sedentary lifestyle is part of the problem.
“We do have a growing aging population,” Hardy continues, “we need to make sure to cater to them and improve their lives.”
Texercize is currently being held at the Sunshine Center in Anderson Hardy adds and you can still join in. But, when this class is over next month (oct 20) it will be heading to Navasota.
