Seniors in Motion & Tai Chi

Seniors in Motion

COVID Update (April 2023) - To ensure the health and safety of our participants, we will continue to offer all classes virtually via Zoom. Please contact the church if you need access info to these classes.

Be a part of an exercise program that targets more than your just your physical well-being! The Seniors In Motion (SIM) program is more than an exercise class – it focuses on the spiritual, social, physical and educational needs of mature members of the La Crosse community. First Pres offers SIM classes with the goal of helping mature individuals remain more active and independent. We employ experienced, board-certified Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants to ensure the highest level of quality.

We offer 2 levels of classes each designed to meet a different level of physical ability. The fitness class is intended for physically-active individuals seeking a challenge. Individuals participating in this class will need to get up and down from the floor to fully benefit from all of the exercises. The basic class targets individuals who like to improve their everyday movements and decrease their risk of falls. Classes are offered in 11-week sessions.
