YMCA of the USA’s evidence-based program curriculum for Falls Prevention and Chronic Conditions such as Arthritis
Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults of all fitness levels. If you have a chronic condition, such as arthritis, or are prone to falling you may be able to gain more strength and independence. You will feel energized- physically, mentally and socially- and be surrounded by people who care. This is a group exercise class taught by a trained and certified Enhance®Fitness instructor, where participants move at their most comfortable pace and are never pushed to do more than they can handle. Each class focuses on cardiovascular endurance, strength, flexibility, and balance.
