City Parks Foundation welcomes all New Yorkers, 60 and over, to participate in CityParks Seniors Fitness. The Fall 2013 season of free fitness programs will begin the week of Sept. 23 and will offer free tennis and yoga instruction in two different parks in Brooklyn.

This season, CityParks Seniors Fitness returns for six weeks to Marine Park in Southeast Brooklyn and South Oxford Park in Fort Greene. All activities will take place twice a week for one hour at each park through Nov. 1. Participants are encouraged to maintain regular attendance to maximize health benefits. All equipment and instruction is provided free of charge.

CityParks Seniors Fitness has served over 5,000 participants since it began in 2006 and aims to keep neighborhood parks a great place for community activity.  The program encourages New Yorkers to maximize the health benefits of staying active at every age. Even in moderate amounts, exercise can help participants feel better, maintain or lose weight, reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, and minimize the symptoms of arthritis.
