Our class was a full two hours, with a 10 minute break somewhere in the middle. I would have preferred a much shorter one, like 1 hour. I don't know if it would be worth it to me to go for a 30 minute class. I'd feel like I was leaving jjust as the class got into it's groove for the day.

The class at the "Y" is only 30 minutes and once a week but it is encouraging me to do more at home.

I attended a full 8 week session and feel much better about myself. At 75, I was beginning to wonder when "IT" would happen to me. I'm much ore able to "catch" myself before I actually hit the ground! What an anxiety reducing feeling!

Since I am now doing a balance class at the "Y", I checked the www.SeniorExercisesOnline.com.

These are good exercises to do at home. emoticon

Thanks, KKATHLEEND, for those web sites. their videos are really well done and easy to understand and follow. I think I'm also going to translate some of their moves to my water classes!

I skipped my 45-minute class this morning. It was just too snowy, cold, and windy, and I tried to talk myself into it, but failed.

We still have no answer as far as I know. Need to ask a different information source, I guess.

I have asked the same question. Silver Sneakers is a franchise out of Phoenix, but I would think SP could get permission for us to record calories burned. (Estimated??) We are all different shapes, ages, & weights but someone should do a ballpark figure!

I've been asking the same question. I started using a couple of Coach Nicole's chair exercise videos. But it seems as if there should be a way to link up Silver Sneakers and SparkPeople to include a workout for the correct SparkPeople credit.

My Silver Sneakers class is tomorrow morning.
