"We're calling this 'Fit 4 Life' and our instructor will lead you through bodyweight, light weight, and circuit exercises that will increase your functional fitness and help you maintain your quality of life," Grona explains. "It's perfect for people who are young at heart and want to keep up their strength and energy levels."
