Fit and Fall Proof™

Functional fitness is the primary theme for the Fit and Fall Proof program. This will help the older adult maintain an independent, freely functioning lifestyle. Muscle strength and flexibility play a primary role in balance and maintaining physical activity.

Regular muscular strength transfers into maintaining vitality - lifting a grandchild for a hug, getting out of a chair with ease, or climbing stairs without puffing. The exercises in the manual above will help you gain strength and flexibility so you can stay active.
