GLENCOE — Stay strong and find your balance with Senior Fitness Start Up! — a new exercise class co-sponsored by Family Service of Glencoe and the Glencoe Park District.
The class designed specifically for men and women over 50 will be led by nationally certified strength conditioning expert and personal trainer Mark Cibrario and his assistant, Patricia Olsen-Prescott. The hour-long class will be held on Wednesday afternoons, from 2 to 3 p.m., beginning July 11, at Glencoe Park District’s Takiff Center, 999 Green Bay Road, in Glencoe. Participants are welcome to join the class at any time and pay as they go.
The fee for each class session is $20. To register and for more information, please contact Joan Merlo, LCSW, or Janet Sorensen at FSG at (847) 835-5111.
Family Service of Glencoe is committed to meeting the needs of community members across the age spectrum. Glencoe resident and FSG Advisory Board member Lois Scheyer, in partnership with FSG staff, commissioned Cibrario to design the fitness program after attending a recent presentation on senior wellness at the Glencoe Public Library facilitated by FSG therapist Joan Merlo, LCSW.
