Both are led by Merton Palmer. registered BCRPA Fitness Leader, who will customize the program to suit the needs of participants.

The Senior Centre has floor mats (you are welcome to bring your own if you wish), but no other equipment so please bring a stretch band and weights for some of the strength exercises.
