Senior residents at Met Council housing sites are encouraged to remain active and participate in the various fitness classes offered to the residents. The classes are taught by Met Council volunteers, including Andrew Schaeffer an Equinox Gym personal trainer and Met Council’s volunteer of the month.
Volunteering since November 2012, Andrew has been leading a fitness workshop for seniors at the Feinberg senior residence. He has excelled as a volunteer and demonstrates outstanding commitment to the clients. Each week, he comes prepared with a lesson plan that is geared towards each specific client’s strengths and abilities. Andrew believes that it is important to contribute to the community any way you can when he states, “if you have a skill, you should share it for free sometimes.”
