Geri-Fit® is the perfect evidence-based group strength training exercise program for senior centers, Area Agencies on Aging, tribal organizations, and other facilities that offer physical activity programs for older adults.

No equipment is needed other than a set of light dumbbell weights ranging in size from 2 to 5-pounds and sturdy chairs. Facilities typically have dumbbell weights available for the participants to use, or the participants can bring their own weights to class.

Licensing affords your facility the ability to offer a tried and proven, evidence-based strength training exercise program that's been thoroughly tested and used for over 20 years. This turnkey approach provides you with a step-by-step workout format so that you can expect the same program outcomes as published studies have shown.

As a Geri-Fit facility licensee, you'll receive:

  • Use of the Geri-Fit® logo to distinguish branding, quality, and name recognition
  • The Geri-Fit® group exercise program workouts (easy-to-follow lesson plans)
  • Access to our special online training portal so that your instructors can get properly trained and certified to teach Geri-Fit
  • Logos and marketing materials to help advertise your Geri-Fit® exercise classes
  • Class handouts and other useful literature
  • Evaluation surveys
  • Free lifetime online support
  • Ability to become a hosting site for Medicare "Silver plans" for program sustainability
  • A free link on our website which has your contact information for Geri-Fit® classes held at your facility
  • New for 2018!!  Free annual Program Fidelity training courses so that your instructors stay current with industry trends and training requirements

License fees for stand alone sites are a one-time fee of $2500 and includes training and certification for two instructors of your choosing. After the first year, there is an annual license renewal fee of $150 for each facility where Geri-Fit classes are held. There are no other fees, royalties or hidden costs. We also offer discounted program license fees for facilities with 10 or more locations (ask about our Blanket License option).  We've prepared a Program Summary  which will help answer any questions you may have about the Geri-Fit tier level III evidence-based health promotion / chronic disease management support program.

Read some of these Letters of Reference from early adopters of Geri-Fit where it still being offered 15-20 years later and with some of the same original members attending class!  North Olmsted, Streetsboro and Kirtland.  This 2017 infograph shows some of the long term measurable outcomes that can be achieved with the Geri-Fit program. 

Title IIID Older Americans' Act (OAA) federal funding for Tier III evidence-based health promotion programs is available to facilities that qualify, especially senior centers and Area Agencies on Aging that are interested in implementing evidence-based health promotion programs or ongoing support programs for chronic disease self-management as well as lifestyle change programs.  Refer to the Title III-D OAA (Older Americans Act) cost chart by visiting the National Council on Aging's website or download the Cost Chart of the approved evidence-based health promotion programs (Geri-Fit is listed on pages 8 and 9).

Gathering info to share with your team before making a decision? View this short power point presentation for more information on how your senior center, AAA, YMCA, JCC, tribal organization, or non-profit can become licensed to offer the Geri-Fit program through OAA federal funding or other funding sources.

Looking at adding fall assessment tools that can measure the effectiveness of your fall prevention programs or evidence-based health promotion programs?  Here's a marketing flyer about the BTrackS postural sway balance plate.  This is an ideal test to conduct on participants "before" they enroll in physical activity and "after" three months of continuous exercise.  We suggest using it for not only the Geri-Fit program, but for all evidence based programs, including fall prevention programs. The test takes only 3 minutes and it tracks progress over time!
