Although not required, it is suggested that you have a staff member or volunteer be present at the time the video is played so that they can monitor the group and occasionally provide recommendations for improvement or exercise correction when needed.
Once you purchase a PPL, you can begin to offer virtual fitness classes by way of DVDs or online streaming. Choose from these DVD titles:
Geri-Fit® Greatest Generation Workout (6 people) $34.95

But wait... there's more! We now offer these same titles in online streaming format (called Geri-Fit Online). No DVD player needed! For more information and a complete listing of all of our titles in DVD or Online Streaming, visit this link.
Our DVD workout videos and online workouts accommodate all fitness levels and modifications of the exercises will be demonstrated so that everyone will be able to participate. Self-pacing is encouraged at all times. Participants should bring their own weights and stretch band to class (usually in a tote bag that they keep in their car), so your facility does not have to purchase any equipment or store any equipment. If stretch bands are needed, we sell them individually or in sets of 10
at wholesale pricing. The only other requirement are sturdy chairs like banquet style or folding chairs, but without any arms. We recommend that the class size be kept at under 25 participants.
The Public Performance License includes a Geri-Fit License Kit consisting of attractive marketing materials, press releases to help to successfully launch your Geri-Fit virtual classes, educational materials (handouts) for fall prevention and flexibility training, surveys, the Geri-Fit logo, photos for marketing literature, a License Certificate (suitable for framing), instructions for implementing your DVD-led or online classes, a sample waiver, and ongoing customer service support. We even provide you with a free flyer announcing that Geri-Fit classes are available at your facility.

to learn about program outcomes of our 2019 national study
where Geri-Fit founder Francesca Fisher teamed up with Dr. Noah Lenstra of the University of North Carolina Greensboro where 535 Geri-Fitters across the U.S. participated in a 12 week DVD-led Geri-Fit resistance training program. To view the actual results of that study, click here
. Here is the final copy
of what was submitted. Special thanks to Dr. Noah Lenstra for his help in this project, the students, the directors at the 49 libraries that helped make it possible, and most of all, the 535 patrons who faithfully came to class each week to exercise with Geri-Fit.

Here are a few comments from people that have participated in virtual Geri-Fit classes at their library, senior center, and from their home:
I have been attending the Geri-Fit classes at the Gilford New Hampshire library twice a week for over a year and they have remarkably improved my strength and balance. - Victoria E. (age 78)
I have enjoyed your videos for over a year now and felt their benefit -- especially when shoveling snow this winter!
I've hiked for years. Decades actually. Gyms have never been my thing and I've known that I should be stretching and using weights but it hasn't happened. When my library offered Geri-Fit, a friend mentioned the same thing I have - they haven't "connected" with gyms, how much they like the group at the library, and how much Geri-Fit has helped them. We range in age from late 60s to almost 90 and certainly a wide range of abilities. - Betty age 74
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate being able to do this during this pandemic!
