New Senior Fitness Classes Starting In RPB

Participants of the Feel Better Steps to Progress program.

New Feel Better fitness classes will begin on Oct. 25 at the Royal Palm Beach Recreation Center.

The Feel Better Steps to Progress program offers classes focused on core, balance and posture exercises for seniors and people with joint and other health conditions.

Melissa Cianfrini, a NASM master personal trainer, senior and group fitness specialist, created the program in 2016 because standard group exercise can be unsafe for these people.

Cianfrini loves seeing the positive results in her clients’ bodies and their quality of life.

“I have RA, lupus and fibromyalgia. Regular exercise classes make all my joints hurt, but with Melissa’s expertise, the Feel Better classes have helped me tremendously,” said Nancy Wall, 67, a two-year class participant.

The small group setting, health history forms, evaluations, check-ins and weekly exercise homework creates a personalized atmosphere.

The workouts are fun, original and educational. There are a variety of formats, including Core & More, Peace & Release Stretch, Aqua Core and Core Circuit. All improve total body core strength, increase mobility, ease joint and back pain and prevent injury.

The program is at five locations in Palm Beach County: Baywinds, Village Walk Wellington, the Greenacres Community Center, the Royal Palm Beach Recreation Center and Winston Trails Lake Worth.
