Physical Benefits

Adults 55 and older are at a higher risk for falls. Regular physical activity is proven to improve strength and flexibility which leads to improved balance and coordination.

Mental Health Benefits

Participating in regular physical activity can also lead to improved mental health and cognitive function.

Social Benefits

Maintaining strong social connections is important for older adults. Our group exercise classes and social and learning opportunities provide a great opportunity to meet new friends and to build connections.
