Fitness for Adults / All Ages

TAI CHI

Relieve stress and increase flexibility by participating in Tai Chi classes led by a certified instructor. Tai Chi is an ancient practice that is enjoyable and safe for every fitness level. The slow, meditative movements of Tai Chi increase strength, range of motion and coordination. Classes can be enjoyed either sitting or standing. Comfortable shoes and loose clothing are recommended. Please bring a personal water bottle.

When: Wednesdays at 3pm starting August 5.

Where: First Horizon Foundation Visitor Center - AutoZone Front Porch and/or lawn  


Hoop Fitness

Hoop Fitness is a low-impact, full body cardio workout that can burn up to 700 calories per hour! Workouts will increase core strength, balance, coordination, posture, muscle tone and self confidence, all while having fun!

This isn't your kid's hula hoop! This class uses adult sized hula hoops that make it easier to maintain momentum while waist hooping and that will build strength while moving the hoop around the body. 

You are welcome to bring your own fitness hoop or you may borrow one from the instructor. A limited number of hoops will be available in a range of sizes on a first come, first served basis.

When: Saturdays at 9:30am.

Where: Event Stage Lawn  


Strength + Balance

The strength and balance class will be a 45 minute class designed for older adults. Participants will work with light hand weights, resistance bands and small inflatable balls. Class will start with a brief warm-up followed by strength training and light cardio, finishing with a cool down and stretch. 

When: Tuesdays at 1:30pm starting on September 22nd.
Where: AutoZone Front Porch at the First Horizon Foundation Visitor Center
