Local seniors get a jump-start on New Year's Resolutions


While most people are still trying to decide how to accomplish their 2017 New Year's resolutions, residents of Ecumen Bethany Community are beginning 2017 by building on a firm foundation of physical fitness already established. Over the past year, they have been attending fitness classes led by a certified personal trainer from Live 2 B Healthy.

Cory Czepa, Live 2 B Healthy president and founder, said, "Our senior fitness classes improve balance, strength and flexibility, but we also have a good time in class and encourage community-building social interaction. The communities that we serve (including Ecumen Bethany Community) report that their residents are happier, as well as healthier, as a result of participation in our classes."

In January 2017, Live 2 B Healthy will conduct fitness assessments for Ecumen Bethany Community. Management and participants will receive a comparative results analysis based upon their September 2016 test results, including improvements in fitness and a full participation report.

If you are an Alexandria area senior looking to make good on your health resolutions for 2017, consider visiting Ecumen Bethany Community and checking out its Live 2 B Healthy fitness classes. Skilled nursing classes meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 to 11:45 a.m. independent living classes meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 to 10:45 a.m. All ability levels are welcome.
