Give the gift of fitness

Dear Editor:

As the holidays draw closer, it seems natural for our thoughts to turn toward being thankful and to finding those “perfect” gifts for the people we love.

Although I have been a member of Friends in Action’s Senior Fitness program for less than three months, I am very thankful that it exists in our community. Machelle and Europa (fitness instructors) offer a variety of classes that are restorative both physically and emotionally, and they do it with lots of compassion and humor. There’s also a well-equipped fitness room that I take advantage of on a regular basis.

Perhaps more important is the sincere feeling of community that abides there. I also understand that the class offerings are expected to be expanded in 2018. Looking forward to that!

Christmas is just around the corner. Here’s an idea — find a senior citizen who means a lot to you and give him/her a month’s membership to the Fitness Program at the Moore Center. I’m pretty sure that’s a gift that will mean a lot to them.
