Strong and Stable: A Balance Class

Recent studies have determined that the risk of falling increases 35% to 40% after age 60.  Additionally, experts tell us that falls are the leading cause of injury in adults older than 70 years.  These are startling statistics!  Current recommendations suggest that older adults should take steps to improve their balance and decrease their risk of falls.

Strong and Stable is an 8 week, 16 session program designed to address the full spectrum of lifestyle practices that can help improve one’s balance, stability, and self-confidence.

The Exercise Physiologist leads participants through focused, stimulating exercise routines and provides personalized attention in a safe, small group setting.  Course materials include informational handouts and exercises for home use.  Pre- and post-session balance assessments are included.
