• “Thanks to the SAIL program, I’ve improved my stamina & strength. Consequently I am happier and feel better about myself.”

  • “The SAIL exercise class has helped me to have more energy and better balance to overcome the vertigo problems of the past. The class has also helped me prevent falling as I have been prone to do.

    Dolores, 78
  • “I joined the SAIL class several months ago after back surgery and the class has strengthened not only my back but the whole body.

    Arlyce, 69
  • “I’ve made lots of new friends. My legs are measurably almost twice as strong as when I started the SAIL class four years ago. Intermittent pain in my back and one hip is gone. I feel vibrant and healthy, far more so than when I was in my 50’s. Exercise has to be priority of every day.

TEAMS for Healthier Living
