The classes have been going well. The format I use is to first do the Fall Stopper exercises with the class, then take them into the hallway to do agility walks together. The improvement is fantastic…as seen when we perform the post Functional Reach Test…the average improvement in 10 weeks is 4-6 inches!

We are having a great time with the FSMS Program exercises. We have 3 classes a week, M-W-F. The residents are excited, serious, confident, eager to learn and share. Attendance is great, 15 to 25. They are utilizing their benefits and have created a social group that is so much fun!
