Benefits of Senior Exercise

Improve strength, balance and mood with regular physical activity

Regular physical activity can:

  • Help Improve balance – as many as 28%-45% of elders fall each year due to balance declining as we age.

  • Improve brain function

  • Strength training gives muscles energy and less injuries

  • Improve Endurance

  • Help improve your ability to do the everyday things you want to do

  • Help improve feelings of depression and may improve overall mood and well-being

  • Help overcome the fear of falling – fear brings your attention to a problem – such as a balance disorder, reduced vision or muscle weakness

Exercise is essential for helping maintain strength in your legs, buttocks and core, all of which are important for balance, certain types of exercise, such as Tai Chi, Yoga and Pilates are particularly helpful for balance.
