Weekly fitness course for adults offered

Do your knees snap, crackle and pop when you climb stairs? Do you slouch more than you used to? Do your wrists and elbows throb when you put in long hours at the computer? Do you feel unsteady stepping off curbs?

If any of these describe you, you might be experiencing signs or symptoms of common adult conditions like osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and balance loss.

A new eight-week course at the South 40 Fitness Center will help participants be proactive and learn how to gain control and slow down the effects of aging.

The exercise class will target balance, mobility, strength, coordination, stability, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness.

Taught by Lori Khazen, WUSTL assistant soccer coach and soccer strength coach, the course will be held from 12:10-12:50 p.m. each Tuesday from March 14-May 2 at the South 40 Fitness Center.

The cost is $10 per class or $60 for all eight.
