SENIOR CIRCUIT ... Fitness coaches at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center invite seniors to Senior Circuit, a four-week program designed for active older adults, male and female, who are looking to maintain an independent lifestyle. Beginners and experienced exercisers will use machines in the JCC's Goldman Fitness Center's Technogym, with rest in between. Senior Circuit will begin with an assessment and finish with ideas for easy follow-up workout programs that build and maintain body strength. The program is for active seniors who are new or returning to exercise, need assistance using the gym equipment, want to build community with other active seniors or need extra motivation to exercise often. The month-long, twice-weekly sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2 to 2:30 p.m. began March 3. The cost for the four-week program is $64 for fitness-center members and $144 for nonmembers. Drop-in fees are $12 for members and $22 for nonmembers. For more information, contact Bonnie McLaughlin at email@example.com or 650-223-8719.
