Leisure Lifestyles Offers Free Classes For Locals Over 40

Are you over 40 years old? Do you want to get in shape, improve your health or just get out more?
Consider this your last day of making excuses, because after you read this there’s no turning back. You’ll know there’s a program in Oxford that offers free programs every day of the week at times that fit every schedule. That’s right. Excuses no longer apply!
“The selection of programs and events held every day at the Oxford Activity Center at 400 Price Street by Leisure Lifestyles Oxford are pretty phenomenal,” said assistant director Marlee Carpenter. “We have something for everyone at any level. We host a variety of aerobics classes–chair aerobics, floor aerobics and water aerobics. We also provide yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates for improving strength, flexibility and balance.”
Carpenter said that Leisure Lifestyles has around 600 weekly participants, with each class averaging around 30 people.
“Currently, our biggest class is Total Body Fitness, which has a steady attendance of 80,” Carpenter said. “We have hundreds of active participants that are improving their quality of life with us, our certified instructors and 17 classes.” (See the new Winter and Spring class schedule below.)
For those not interested in an exercise program, Carpenter said that Leisure Lifestyles is about more than exercising.
“We’re here to provide a happy and healthy lifestyle,” she said. “This includes events, socials and specialty classes such as art and dancing.”
There are art classes such as Chronicles of Yarnia on Wednesday mornings and Art with a Kick on Friday mornings, according to Carpenter. There are even classes centered around canasta and dominoes.
If you enjoy dancing, try the Line Dancing class on Tuesday afternoons or Dancing with a Twist on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
“Getting active isn’t difficult when you spend an hour with us,” Carpenter said. “You’ll quickly learn that exercising isn’t a chore; it’s actually pretty fun!”
“Don’t be afraid to give us a try,” Carpenter said.
