Focusing on abs, glutes, arms and legs, you will increase core strength, flexibility and mobility - all attributes that contribute to both pickleball success and general physical wellness. Sessions will take place primarily on the floor (BYOM - Bring Your Own Mat) and will last approximately forty-five minutes.
Senior Fitness Specialist, Artie Gardella, founder of Synergy Senior Fitness, has been developing and teaching programs for the active adult community for over 17 years.

His work ranges from the active adult community (with programs to help them improve their Golf, Tennis, and Pickleball games) to developing effective programs for those who suffer from Parkinson’s and those with limited movement capability. His upbeat, fun and very personal approach has made him the premier instructor for all things senior in Central/Northern Florida.
