Some exercises are done while sitting, but also a few are done by the chair, using it for support if needed. Stretchy bands, bouncing balls and hand weights are all utilized in the workout. The women pool players get in several rounds of friendly competitive games of 8-ball. Bring your pool stick or use one from the center and test your skills. The painting/crafting class is a social time to get together and get creative at a canvas or any other craft you want to bring in to work on while sharing ideas. At 10:30 a.m., a group of line dancers practice their moves. Check it out and get a powerful workout while having a blast. Afternoon games begin around 1 p.m. Bridge and canasta are popular card games. A coed 8-ball pool tournament will take place at 1 p.m. All seniors are invited to try out their pool shooting skills in the competition.

Exercise equipment that includes a treadmill, two exercise bikes and a weight set are available for use. Water aerobics sessions begin at 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the city pool on 12th Street in Couch Park. Cost is $2 per session. In the afternoon, games include canasta, duplicate bridge, dominoes, pool/snooker and jigsaw puzzle solving. Bingo will now be played Tuesday at 2 p.m. in addition to the regular Thursday time.

Wednesday: Sit ‘n Be Fit begins at 9:30 a.m. The class offers a low-impact, 45-minute workout that helps strengthen and tone your muscles. Stay and practice some boot scootin’ line dancing. The women pool players practice their pool shots again beginning at 9:30 a.m. In the afternoon, there are games of canasta, pool and snooker along with a 2 p.m. movie. The movie for this week is a comedy titled, “So Undercover.”

At 6 p.m., musicians tune up their instruments to make some good toe-tappin country music.

Friday: The exercise class, Sit ‘n Be Fit, is a free class offered at the center at 9:30 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The class can help you test your endurance and strengthen your muscles and give you a good workout. If you would like some more exercise, stay after class and join the line dancing group that meets at 10:30 a.m. They really get to moving and can work up a sweat while having fun.
