Therapy bands provide a new way to exercise

Summerfield byUnsplashThe Newcastle Public Library will debut its Therapy Band Exercise series, beginning at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, and continuing on Tuesdays and Thursdays at that time for six weeks, through Thursday, Nov. 10.

The classes are geared to seniors, though anyone age 18 and up may attend. Participants will learn and do no-impact chair exercises using resistance bands to increase strength and muscle tone.

Classes are limited to 18 participants, so registration is required. Attendees are encouraged to come to all 12 classes to get the most benefit they can out of it.
