Roser Community Church hosts Fit Fingers & Healthy Hands Workshop
Boomers N Motion and Roser Church are pleased to announce a special 2-class workshop in June called Fit Fingers & Healthy Hands. For over 100 years, Roser Community Church has spiritually served the residents and  guests of Anna Maria Island and Manatee County. Now, in addition to the spiritual health of its members and guests, Roser is committed to strengthening their overall physical health and wellness. In these efforts, Boomers N Motion Health Coaching is pleased to collaborate with Roser to offer this new workshop in addition to Roser-Robics, the chair-based exercise class.
In this one-of-a-kind workshop, you’ll learn exercises and stretches that will help improve your grip strength, dexterity, and overall hand and wrist strength.
Do you suffer from high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, trigger finger, or other conditions of the hands or wrists? This class is for YOU! Researchers have found that strengthening the muscles in your hands can lower blood pressure, especially systolic pressure (or the top number). In addition, tailored hand exercise programs have been shown to improve the function of rheumatoid hands. Trigger fingers may benefit from stretching and extending the fingers, and those worried about developing carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from strengthening the wrist flexors and extensors. This class will cover all of this and more! One price includes two classes, theraputty, and a take-home exercise guide.
