"I’ve taken Susanne’s senior strength class for several years. Her exercises help me stay strong, maintain balance, and continue to lead an active life even at the age of 81. I especially appreciate that Emerson Wellness streams the class so I can enjoy the strength program from home. I strongly recommend this class to anyone who wants to maintain fitness as they age."
