Exercise—Improving by Moving

Home » Exercise—Improving by Moving

Exercise and physical activity are good for just about everyone, including older adults. We call it Improving by Moving. There are four main types and each type is different. Doing them all will give you more benefits.

  • Endurance, or aerobic, activities increase your breathing and heart rate. Brisk walking or jogging, dancing, swimming, and biking are examples.
  • Strength exercises make your muscles stronger. Lifting weights or using a resistance band can build strength.
  • Balance exercises help prevent falls
  • Flexibility exercises stretch your muscles and can help your body stay limber

These sessions are to increase blood flow and heart rate, improving strength, stamina, balance, flexibility, and overall health. Members may exercise the entire time, or according to their ability. Exercise routines will vary each day and are beneficial from a seated or standing position (according to the ability of the individual member). An instructor ensures that the exercises are done correctly and safely for maximum benefit.
