Winona State University’s Retiree Center will offer the non-credit course “Fitness and Wellness for Active Adults” as part of Senior University 2015 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Fridays, Oct. 30 to Dec. 11.
The course will give participants the tools they need to maintain a fitness and wellness plan and enhance overall health. Instructors and exercise science students will customize a wellness plan for each participant by performing a baseline fitness assessment, help set and implement individual nutrition and physical fitness goals, and educate participants on the benefits of exercise and proper nutrition.
Justin Geijer and Kent Hanson, assistant professors in the health, exercise, and rehabilitative sciences department, will instruct the class. Geijer earned his Ph.D. in exercise physiology and has over 10 years of experience as a certified personal trainer. Hansen earned his Ph.D. in nutritional science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The course is $40, and registration is available online. A physician’s clearance and signed release form will be required for this course.
Senior University is open to all people of retirement age in the Winona community. The program is a series of non-credit short courses that are peer-led by WSU faculty, retirees and community members. The goal is to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation and growth for lifelong learners. Courses cover current events, history, philosophy, science, art, poetry and literature.
