Does it feel increasingly difficult to maintain your weight as you age? If so, there may be a biochemical reason the number on the scale keeps creeping up. As you age, your body becomes much more susceptible to inflammation and less resistant to hormonal and environmental fluctuations.
As your body ages, it can become harder to do high-level activities such as running. Come join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, in this runners-specific pop-up class, during which you will learn how to cross-train to prevent injuries that are common among runners. You’ll learn how to become injury-resilient with optimal trunk, pelvis, and hip control. Be sure to come in your workout clothes, because you and Ashley will be working together to put these exercises into action right away!
Why is stretching so essential? What’s the best way to do it quickly and effectively? Learn about the benefits of stretching and the most useful stretches for all the major muscle groups. Heather Walther, PT, has worked with physical therapy clients and professional athletes alike, and will demonstrate correct form and posture in this virtual session. Follow along with each stretch from the comfort of your own home. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing to move around.
Why should you stretch? Your first thought may be, “to become more flexible.” Understandably, many people discount stretching for this reason, since it is not everyone’s goal to become more flexible. But stretching is one of the most important things you can do for your body's health and fitness.

It’s easy to go through daily life without even thinking about what your body is doing. Going up and down the stairs, doing laundry, picking up your child or grandchild, or even exercising are routine activities that your body becomes used to performing. But it’s often activities like these that can lead to imbalances or even injury if your muscles — particularly your core — aren’t properly engaged and stabilized.
