Program Description:

General fitness uses a variety of both resistance and cardiovascular exercises to provide opportunities for older adults or those with mobility restrictions, both male and female, to benefit from regular physical activity.

Physical activity included in this program is not strenuous, however still achieves a variety of health benefits.

Participants will work through an assortment of exercises both body weight and equipment assisted in a circuit format, moving from station to station for a 60min session.

Exercise can be tailored to suit individual fitness abilities and experience as facilitators are able to provide alternative or re-work exercises to increase or decrease how strenuous that exercise is on the individual.

Furthermore, facilitators can assist you in rehabilitation and re-conditioning goals by providing exercise that support repair and regeneration. Remember, stopping all forms of exercise and activity in response to an injury or weakness is not always the correct response.

If you are recovering from an illness, injury or have ailments that would impact your participation please discuss these with your facilitator before participating.


  • The loss of strength and stamina attributed to aging is in part caused by reduced physical activity.

  • Inactivity increases with age. By age 75, about one in three men and one in two women engage in no physical activity.

  • Among adults aged 65 years and older, walking and gardening or yard work are, by far, the most popular physical activities.

  • Social support from family and friends has been consistently and positively related to regular physical activity.

Benefits of Physical Activity:

  • Helps maintain the ability to live independently and reduces the risk of falling and fracturing bones.

  • Reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and of developing high blood pressure, colon cancer, and diabetes.

  • Can help reduce blood pressure in some people with hypertension.

  • Helps people with chronic, disabling conditions improve their stamina and muscle strength.

  • Reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression and fosters improvements in mood and feelings of well-being.

  • Helps maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints.

  • Helps control joint swelling and pain associated with arthritis.
