Loss of mobility in aging adults can be a damaging cycle: the less an individual moves his/her body, the less agile the body becomes. Help your aging loved one build strength, flexibility, balance and confidence through a combination of seated, standing and water exercises.
Exercising, for seniors, helps maintain flexibility, endurance and strength, all while improving heart health, which is important for older adults. Exercising, when chosen carefully and found to be in line with what the senior body can handle, helps improve overall quality of life, lessen problems from balance and coordination issues and aids in maintaining strength.

April 22 to 28 is Medical Fitness Week! So what does this mean for you? Well, the “National Walking Challenge” is one of the events planned for the week, and everyone across the country is encouraged to walk, that includes you! Walking is the best cardio exercise for seniors. It improves blood circulation, it’s easy on the joints and it’s not complicated to do. If you can still move, you can perform a variety of heart-engaging activity. It’s not too late to improve your fitness level and your quality of life.
