• Senior Exercise – Falls Prevention Programs

  • Provided by the Ontario Ministry of Health, the “Falls Prevention Program” is offered twice weekly in Calabogie to those over the age of 65. Sitting on a chair, this class encourages slow, focused movement designed to increase strength for the shoulders, arms, hips, legs and feet.

    From bruises to fractured bones, falls by those over the age of 65 due to poor balance, weak muscles or diminished range of motion, account for a high percentage of emergency visits and hospital stays. Studies have shown, exercise programs for this age group reduce the incidence of falls.

    The Falls Prevention Programs help seniors stay healthy, active, and mobile. If you are 65 years of age or older, you can join Falls Prevention classes offered free of charge. As a Kinesiologist, I focus on helping seniors stay active and improve and maintain balance, strength and mobility.

    This programs is Heart Wise Certified allowing for a safe environment for those seniors recovering from cardiac and stroke interventions, COPD and diabetes.

  • I have been a member of Susan’s senior exercise program for eighteen months following hip replacements surgery. This bi-weekly exercise program has improved my mobility and stamina way beyond my expectations.

  • Terrific class! Not overly strenuous but challenging and fun.
