Senior citizens step it up

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT):

A group of Region 8 residents are "stepping it up!"

Senior citizens are taking the "Step It Up" program just recently offered at the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging.

On Monday's and Wednesday's from two-thirty to three-thirty people are getting into shape and having a good time doing it!

Lifestyle Specialist James Hunter says classes like these are vital in helping senior citizens stay active and maintain their independence, "It's gonna help them get to moving, get their joints going. Because so many need to be doing things and more than just walking."

If you would like to participate in this class or any others being offered, contact the East Arkansas Area on Aging.
