YWCA Clinton receives support for senior fitness equipment from Alliant Energy Foundation
Classes offered to improve body strength, flexibility and balance
The YWCA Clinton has traditionally served a large senior population and membership continues to grow in this age group. The YWCA strives to meet the needs of this growing population and to provide a place for seniors to go to strengthen their bodies, as well as their minds. The Alliant Energy Foundation is providing $1,000 to purchase fitness equipment to help senior members increase their range of motion, strength and flexibility.
“As we began seeing more and more seniors, we realized that we needed to expand our programs and create classes that specifically addressed the needs of seniors as they work to stay healthy and independent,” says Judy Bonnet, Director of Senior Services. “Funding from the Alliant Energy Foundation will help with the purchase of equipment specifically designed for our senior fitness classes.”
Socialization is an important element in overall health. Healthy seniors are able to maintain their independence longer and stay in their own homes. Classes at the YWCA focus on strengthening muscles needed for daily chores and activities to maintain their homes.
