Wildlife Park Offers Fitness/Exercise Program

homosassa-wildlife-park-logo-Public invited to attend classes starting February 24-

The Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will host exercise classes in the Florida Room in the park’s Visitor Center located on US 19 in Homosassa Springs. These exercise/fitness programs will be held on the following dates: Monday, February 24; Monday, March 10; Monday, March 24; and Monday, April 7, 2014. The classes will start at 9:30 a.m. and run until 10:00 a.m.

The public is invited to join in any of the exercise classes. While you are encouraged to attend all four classes, it is not mandatory that you do so. Consult your medical professional before beginning an exercise routine. A donation of $2.00 per class is suggested and will benefit the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park.

Presented by Steve and Patti Griffith, all of the exercises in this program are focused on improving balance, range of motion and strength. Participants should wear lose clothing and “gym shoes” appropriate for exercising. Some exercises are practiced while sitting. Others, including balance, are practiced while standing. Your chair will always be nearby to help provide ease while practicing all balancing exercises. Exercises and practices are useful in improving your ability to perform normal, daily tasks.

After enjoying a fun-filled exercise class, take some additional time to enjoy the Wildlife Park. Regular park admission will apply for entrance into the Wildlife Park. For more information on this and other fitness related programs, please call the Park Office (352) 628-5343, ext. 1002, Mondays through Fridays.
