Choose from the following programs:
Geri-Fit® is an evidence based strength training exercise and falls prevention program for older adults. During this 45-minute class, you'll improve functional capacity, balance, flexibility and strength. Accommodates all age groups from 60-100 and especially those that are mobility disadvantaged or want to improve their activities of daily living. Works at rebuilding strength that's been lost through the aging process. As your strength increases, you can use heavier dumbbells in order to challenge yourself even more. No aerobics, dancing or choreography to learn and there's no floorwork. Most of the exercises will be performed seated in chairs. Each person is encouraged to work out at his/her own pace. This is an ideal ongoing exercise program for chronic disease self-management such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and weight loss/management. Bring a pair of dumbbells from 2 to 5 pounds, a stretch band, and water to drink. Geri-Fit is a tier III (highest level) evidence-based health promotion program recognized by the AoA, ACL, and NCOA.
Golf-Fit® Strength and Stretching Class
Geri-Flex® is a 30-minute stretching program for active older adults. It combines the best stretches from ballet, pilates, tai chi, and yoga. Students are required to get on the floor, so they'll need to bring an exercise mat and stretch band. We'll work on improving joint mobility, flexibility, balance, and muscular strength. All age groups.
Geri-Fit® Private Lessons are held at select locations throughout the U.S. and we also provide in-home visits. Personal Fitness Training allows you the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Certified Senior Strength Training Specialist. Whatever your goal is, we can help you get stronger, improve your mobility, increase your range of motion, and improve your balance and functional capacity. All sessions are 30-minutes long and all equipment is provided. By appointment only. Call 1-888-GERI-FIT x4 for more information.
Body Sculpting™ is a one-hour all weights strength training exercise program. The class requires a set of 3 or 5-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat and a stretch band. There is no choreography or dance moves to learn. The instructor will provide plenty of one-on-one instruction in the group setting so it will be like working out with your own personal fitness trainer. Suggested for all age groups provided the participant is in reasonably good shape and can perform full repetition squats and lunges. A chair may be used for balance by older participants that sign up for this class.
