Senior Fitness & Hair Fair Is Coming Thursday, Sept. 10th
The City of Burienâ€™s Senior Program is promoting its first Senior Fitness & Hair Fair on Thursday, Sept. 10th from 10am to 2pm at the Burien Community Center, which is located at 425 SW 144th Street.
While we’re kinda confused about seniors getting their hair “fit,” here are the details:
WHAT: Senior Fitness & Hair Fair
WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 10th from 10sm to 2pm
WHERE: Burien Community Center, located at 425 SW 144th Street
INFO: You might want to go just for the freebies (tote bags, massages and our faves â€“ the mysterious “vials of life”); here’s a blurb from a press release:
With everything else in recession, Burienâ€™s Senior Program is looking to maintain and even boost Highline-area seniorsâ€™ health, with a special focus on regaining muscle strength and physical balance. Many freebies will be offered at the event, including fitness tote bags stuffed with elastic bands, â€œvials of lifeâ€, and educational materials.
The Senior Program is offering new $10 discounts to any new ShapeUp! fitness class participants and to returning participants whoâ€™ll be trying new classes. Fitness gear, health screenings (vision, cancer, and spine), 5-minute massages, and healthy snacks will also be provided free-of-charge. Actual fitness class demonstrations and speakers on various health topics will be featured throughout the event.
The ShapeUp! Program is presented in partnership with King County Emergency Services, whose mission focuses preventing falls among seniors. For further information call Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services at 206-988-3700.
