Education Session: Adapting Physical Activities for Joint Health
This session discusses the importance of physical activity and introduces ways to adapt activities to participant’s individual physical condition. This session includes exercise demonstrations.
Presenter: Marc Gilgannon, PT
What to expect if you choose to try tree climbing: Experience trees from a whole new perspective! Participants will ascend into the tree canopy using arborist-style rope climbing systems. They will wear helmets, and be harnessed in and on belay by an instructor while climbing. Climbing is always challenge-by-choice: participants can decide to come down at any point. Recommendations on what to wear/bring: gloves – well fitted gardening-style with a rubberized palm (helps grip the rope), closed-toe shoes (high top preferred), long pants or longer shorts, (short-shorts will be uncomfortable with the harness). » Go here to learn more about Riverside Outfitters and Recreational Tree Climbing
