Let’s Move Fitness Class

We're all trying to stay active and capable as we get older, and this is the class where we can do it together. All levels are welcome — we work at our own pace, maintaining what we’ve got, and trying to build more endurance, strength, flexibility and balance through functional exercise that includes cardio, toning and stretching.

Some of our activities will be seated, and there will always be the option to perform the whole class in a chair if that is what works best for you. It’s a "build-your-own-class" kind of program, where modification is the key!

Taught by Kristina Gravette, an ACE-certified instructor, at the Community Center. For more information, contact Gravette via email or at 425-391-0404. Fees are paid directly to the instructor. Fee: $6 per class, or $50 for 10 classes
