Geri-Fit® is an evidence based strength training exercise program for older adults. During this 45-minute class, you'll improve strength, balance, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.  Geri-Fit accommodates all age groups from 60-100 and each person is encouraged to work out at his/her own pace.  The instructor will provide plenty of one-on-one assistance in the beginning to assure that you're learning the correct way to work out with weights.  We suggest individuals start out using a set of 2-pound dumbbells and then, as their strength increases, they can use heavier dumbbells in order to build more strength and balance.  There's no aerobics, dancing or choreography to learn and there's no floorwork. Most of the exercises will be performed seated in chairs.  Geri-Fit is an ideal ongoing evidence-based exercise program for chronic disease self-management such as diabetes, heart disease, pain, arthritis, and weight loss/management as well as an ongoing EBP for fall prevention course graduates.  Geri-Fit is a tier III (highest level) evidence-based health promotion / disease prevention program recognized by the AoA, ACL, and NCOA.
