WORCESTER – The City of Worcester will celebrate the final component of the Senior Center’s new fitness operation on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 10:30 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony highlighting Fallon Health’s generous contribution to the project.
The media and public are welcome to attend.
Fallon Health, a Worcester-based provider of health insurance and health care services, donated $200,000 to the Senior Center to establish the Five Years of Fitness program to encourage older adults to stay active in mind and body.
The ribbon cutting will formally open a refurbished room on the second floor of the Worcester Senior Center’s fitness center which will serve as a gathering point for fitness programing supported by Fallon Health.
Fallon Health’s commitment covers the costs of exercise equipment and fees associated with certified instructor-led programming. Due to ongoing concerns from the pandemic, classes began virtually in early 2022 and have since transitioned to include in-person options. Available through 2027, programs include but are not limited to: Strength training, osteoporosis prevention, dance, tai chi, aerobics and yoga, walking, as well as balance and fall prevention.
Instructors will be on hand to demonstrate the programming that will take place in the second floor Fallon Health Wellness Center.
