Northbrook Park District Fitness Supervisor Rachel Tandy is excited to offer an event that focuses specifically on the Senior and Active Aging population. Regular movement is crucial for seniors to maintain health, build immune systems, and prevent falls and injury. Tandy explained, “The TPAC instructors are skilled in providing seniors with programs and information they can use to increase quality of life as they age. We also provide a fun community environment where participants can meet and move with friends and discover the joy in exercise.”
