BELOIT – Grant funding for equipment and training for instructors of senior exercise classes at the NCK Wellness Center regularly benefits more than 120 seniors in the Beloit area.
With the purchase of equipment such as weights and stairs, instructors could work with seniors on balance and everyday activities. Certifications helped the instructors improve their skills and better prepare exercises for their class participants.
There were more than 2,300 visits to the center during 2020 and even more virtual classes were taken. The center focused on community outreach during the COVID-19 pandemic and classes were televised. Some of the new equipment was made available for home use.
Grant funds also paid for an automatic door opener for the center.
