Fall water exercise program to begin Tuesday in Fredonia

Special to The OBSERVER

Winter is fast approaching and with it comes the nagging aches and pains that worsen as the temperature drops.

Stay loose and limber this season by diving right in and taking a proactive approach through the Fall Water Exercise Program held at the LoGuidice Educational Center, 9520 Fredonia-Stockton Road, Fredonia in “E” building.

The Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES Workforce Development Division is currently accepting registration for the program held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 or 5-6 p.m., beginning this Tuesday and ending Dec. 20.

“Warm water aerobics is a great way for anyone dealing with arthritis, joint and ligament tension or simple aches and pains that sometimes flare up as the temperature lowers,” said Mary Benson, water exercise instructor. “The benefits of water aerobics branches much further than simply relieving aches and pains, however. Participants can expect to help improve muscle tone, range of movement and motor control. Social interaction can also be a great benefit.”

Each exercise session requires a minimum of 12 students. Sign-up along with a $60 course payment must be made prior to the first class. To register or for more information, please call 805-3159. Checks should be made payable to: Erie 2 BOCES and mailed to E2CCB, 214 Central Ave., Dunkirk, NY 14048. Payment can also be made by charge card over the phone.
