Geri-Fit® is a tier III (highest level) evidence-based health promotion program and chronic disease self-management support program. There's no aerobics, dancing, choreography, or floorwork to learn. Most of the exercises are performed seated in chairs with dumbbell weights ranging in size from 2 to 5 pounds.
The Geri-Fit program can accommodate any age and fitness level, from age 60 to 99, as each person is encouraged to work out at their own pace. Having a stronger body means better balance which translates into fewer falls and fewer trips to the hospital. In addition, strength training exercises will help manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, depression, pain and more.
Our proven methods of combining strength training, balance training, and proprioception exercises will help turn back the hands of time and improve the quality of life for older adults. Become certified today and help others live a long and healthy life through Geri-Fit!
Geri-Fit's courses are approved by NSCA and NCCAP: approval numbers 32118-19 and 500242-19NT; and the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) for RCFEs, GHs, and ARFs that require contact hours for continued education licensing requirements, vendor approval number 2000509-740-2.
