In addition to the physical benefits, research has shown that, among older adults who participate in this program, health costs were lowered each year by close to $1,000 and 9 out of 10 people stay with the program. In addition, 99 percent say they would recommend the program to a friend.
Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults. Those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; they will never have to do anything that hurts. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and increase the weight they use for strength training at their own pace.
