Workout Wednesday at Montgomery County Senior Adult Activities Center (Montco SAAC) is offering another eight-week session of Tai Chi with instructor Peter Judd from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays beginning March 7. Extended hours on Wednesday are an effort by SAAC to encourage adults who are still working to take advantage of the center’s programming and facilities.
Tai Chi is also known as energy exercise. It is characterized by breathing, accompanied by slow-focused movements. It can improve balance, strength, and endurance. While participants are encouraged to stretch their limits they are never encouraged to go beyond what they can comfortably do.
Peter Judd, of Taijiquan Enthusiasts Organization, hosts a relaxing class, complete with soothing music and a harmonious atmosphere. His calm and pleasant demeanor encourages without pressure, and makes everyone feel included.
In addition to the Tai Chi class, Forever Fit, the center’s fitness center will also be available. It contains 10 hydraulic fitness machines, work out tapes and a NuSTEP, the latest in no pain, no sweat exercise equipment. Our fitness program offers a simple circuit lay out involving fun, non-impact equipment.
In an effort to keep costs low, the eight-week Tai Chi session is being offered for $45 and Forever Fit has a quarterly membership of $20. Pre-registration for Tai Chi is due with payment by Feb. 24.
Montco SAAC is a private non-profit organization, serving adults in the greater Norristown area. It is located at 536 George Street in Norristown. Participants are welcome to park in our lot. Further information is available by calling 610-275-1960.
