Gardeners get in the Groove with a Fitness Class!

The regular fitness-balance class at The Village at Duxbury made way for gardeners during National Garden Month. Fitness instructor Vito Fiorentino led the class in a series of gardening warm-up exercises along with post-gardening stretches.

We’re all familiar with the ways gardening promotes a sense of well-being and helps to improve balance and overall physical conditioning. Not to mention the reward from a bountiful garden. Who doesn’t love the vibrant colors of spring and summer flowers along with the savory flavor of fruits, herbs, and vegetables freshly picked?

Residents of The Village at Duxbury enjoy a large dedicated outdoor garden space, as well as a greenhouse where plants can winter-over and seedlings can be nurtured.

For a complimentary tour and luncheon, call 888-336-1349 and experience a lifestyle that is active, interesting, and rewarding.
