The benefits of maintaining strength, flexibility, and aerobic fitness are well proven by research, but many people who would like to exercise don’t know where to begin. If you’d like some guidance in getting started (or getting back into) an exercise routine, this is the program for you! The three-session program, one per month, will provide participants with simple, clear instruction on each of the three key areas of fitness: aerobic conditioning, strength, and flexibility. Our focus will be on simple exercises that don’t require a lot of time or equipment, and will be applicable for people of all fitness levels.
The participating SUNY Canton “Physical Therapy Assistant” (PTA) program faculty are: Deborah Molnar, PT, DPT, MEd, Jennifer McDonald, PT, DPT, MS and Anne Reilly, PTA, BS. These teachers are all experienced physical therapy professionals and educators who are passionate about the importance of maintaining fitness as a means to improve overall health. Together with their PTA students they are excited about the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with SOAR course participants.

First 2 sessions meet in the Mezzanine (take elevator or walk upstairs); the third session meets in the "spin" room (small exercise room next door to the pool). Students or faculty are near the entrances to direct you.
