May  is time for  the 23rd annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day:

Senior Health & Fitness Day is always held the last Wednesday in May. That week and every week, celebrate your health and fitness with a variety of mature adult-friendly activities – maybe water exercises (improve your  balance and relax your  back by walking BACKWARDS in a 3 foot deep pool), line or ballroom dancing,  or our Tai Chi class!.
