    BETTER BODY BALANCE


    Better Body Balance for Seniors is a specialized fitness class designed to enhance the physical and mental well-being of older adults by focusing on improving their balance, stability, and overall body strength. This class is tailored to meet the unique needs and abilities of seniors, helping them maintain an active and independent lifestyle. 


    Each session starts with a gentle warm-up, including light stretching and breathing exercises to prepare the body and mind. Some balance drills and specific exercises will be offered to challenge and improve balance. Light weights, or bodyweight exercises will be used to build strength in the legs, core, and upper body. Stretching routines are incorporated to maintain or improve flexibility, aiding in mobility and preventing muscle stiffness.

    FLY ME TO THE MOON!


    We are heading out on a trek to the stars as we return to the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium at Buffalo State University. Besides an afternoon under the stars, we will once again be serenaded by Professor Holly Bewlay’s Voice students in the planetarium. This trip, there will only be 48 seats. The schedule for the day is as follows:


    THURSDAY APRIL 11th:
    11:00 am - Meet at Tosh for lunch
    11:30 am - Depart Tosh for Buff State
    12:00 pm - Arrive at Planetarium
    12:30 pm - Student Vocal Performances
    1:30 pm - Planetarium Show
    2:30 pm- Depart Buff State for Tosh
    3:00 pm - Arrive back at Tosh


    Starting with this trip, we will be trying out a new system to
    alleviate the 7AM line-ups at the Center. We are instating a lottery process to win tickets to trips.


    From March 1st to March 15th, all members (City & non-City) may purchase one lottery ticket per person to be entered into a drawing to go on the trip. The lottery ticket is $5. If you want to ensure that your spouse/ significant other/ best friend (who also must be a member) accompanies you if you win, you may put two names on the lottery ticket for $10.


    On Friday March 15th at Noon, we will pick the winners live. Half of the
    people picked will be City of Buffalo residents, the other half will be non-City members. Once you have been notified that you won, you have one week to pay for your trip ticket- $15 for City of Buffalo members, $20 for non-City members. Lunch is an additional $3.


    Membership must be current as of February 29th to enter the lottery.
