What is Geri-Fit?
Geri-Fit is a strength training program for older adults, specifically tailored for men and women. This senior fitness program is for all ages and fitness levels. Each class takes about 45 minutes and individuals can work their way through this exercise class from the comfort of a chair. Classes are led by a Geri-Fit licensed instructor. Classes consist of light aerobic warmup, hand weights, stretching, balancing, and deep breathing. Hydration breaks are taken throughout the class.
In each class, residents work at regaining strength that’s been lost through the aging process. Most noteworthy, increasing their balance, which aids in fall prevention. As seniors increase their strength and endurance, they are able to move onto heavier weights to continue strength building.
