The parking lot is already full and side streets lined with cars. Meet at the sign-in table for the bike ride, head for dance fusion class with Jean Perry or catch the drop-in volleyball after trying out the weight room on the second floor. It was 55+ fitness day at Langston-Brown Senior Center on May 11.
Ronald Black, fitness coach for the regular drop-in "workout with a fitness coach" sessions offered on Monday and Friday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., says they expect about 200 seniors to participate during the day. Black says he is there to provide information about exercise and to assist with using the machines and weights.
The activities began at 9:30 a.m. and ended at 2:45 p.m. with Tai Chi taught by Karen Levitan. The event was sponsored by the Office of Senior Adult Programs.
