Scientists have found that staying physically active and exercising regularly can help prevent or delay many diseases and disabilities. For example, studies show that people with arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes benefit from regular exercise. Exercise also helps people with high blood pressure, balance problems, or difficulty walking. (Reference; NIH Senior Health)
Being physically active can help you stay strong and fit enough to keep doing the things you like to do as you get older. Making exercise and physical activity a regular part of your life can improve your health and help you maintain your independence as you age.
Our group class is currently on hold but led by a Physiotherapist and runs weekly on Wednesday afternoons. An assessment is completed one on one with the Physiotherapist before and after participating in the class for 10 weeks. Our Seniors can see real objective changes in their strength, balance and walking ability.
