Town Continues Remote Exercise Classes for Seniors

North Hempstead, NY - Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board have announced that Project Independence (PI), the Town’s aging-in-place initiative, will continue to offer at-home exercise classes for seniors through the end of the year. In April, keeping with recommendations to stay at home whenever possible, the Town transitioned to hosting the free senior exercise classes remotely.

“As the pandemic persists, we are proud to continue offering these remote exercise classes,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “It is important to provide our seniors with an opportunity to stay fit and active at home. Technology has truly enabled us to remain connected in spite of the pandemic. After receiving so much positive feedback about our virtual programming, both online and on television, extending these services is a common-sense decision.”

The PI exercise classes are broadcasted on the Town’s public access television station, North Hempstead TV (NHTV). Residents will be able to watch the programs on channel 18 or 63 on Cablevision and channel 46 on Verizon FIOS. Episodes can also be accessed on demand on www.mynhtv.com/fitness.
