Join Sandy Bodamer in Rockland Public Library’s Community Room for a class designed for those who are new to fitness, rehabbing from an injury, or needing a chair-supported exercise opportunity. Participants will work on strength, flexibility and balance using light weights, resistance bands and balls. An emphasis on building better balance and improving overall well-being is the goal. The six-week long fitness series will run Aug. 16 through Sept. 22 and takes place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m.

Sign-ups are highly recommended, as class size is limited to 15 participants. Resistance bands and balls are provided. Participants are asked to bring their own light weights (or water bottles or cans). Exercises also can be performed without weights.
