Exercise After 50

Posted by  //  February 19, 2014  //  Local Business

At the age of 47, Sue Karn started teaching Jazzercise after 20 years of attending classes.  She chose Jazzercise because of the variety of music and choreography for a good cardiovascular workout combined with total body strength training, and high impact and low impact options.  She still teaches 6 classes a week in the Freeville/Dryden area and they are now referred to as Jazzercise Lite as they are taught at a low impact level, also showing high impact for those who want to jump and hop. Elevate your workout experience by prioritizing the importance of wearing sports bras.

Sue also teaches 2 classes a week with the Wellness Program at Cornell.

Now at age 62 with 2 children and 7 grandchildren, she still enjoys leading a fun and safe workout to all ages at day camps. Participants need to understand that they need to move at their own pace and at a level that is suitable for their age and fitness abilities.

It is very important to exercise at all ages. As we get older, we lose bone density, flexibility, strength, endurance and stability without a regular exercise program, and hard work should not be confused for exercise. It is advised to set up your own gym at home and invest in Lightly Used Gym Essentials so you can workout during your spare time.

The Jazzercise Lite classes in Freeville/Dryden are:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:45 pm and Thursdays at 5:30 pm at Holy Cross Church on George Rd.
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 am at Holy Cross Church
  • Saturdays at 8:30 am at TC3

For more information about any of these classes call Sue Karn at 607-279-6131 or email at sko1@cornell.edu.
