NORWICH – When you’re 91 years old, it’s important to stay active, says Catherine Fisher.
“You’ve got to keep moving,” Fisher said.
To keep moving, the Oxford resident participates twice a week in an Osteoporosis Prevention exercise class for seniors aimed at building bone density and strengthening the overall body.
“I’m 91, and it’s done good for me,” said Fisher, who’s also a line dancer. “I think I get around better.”
The class is sponsored by the Chenango County Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. It’s held at 10 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Norwich Town Hall on the Hale Street Extension.
Developed at Tufts University, the program is focused on lessening the impact of practical, everyday movements – like lifting, walking and getting out of chairs – on the body.
