Geri-Fit ® Strength Training For Older Adults
Geri-Fit® is a 45-minute evidence based strength training exercise class for older adults.
Most of the bodybuilding exercises are performed seated in chairs with a set of light dumbbell
weights. As you become stronger, you can advance to using heavier dumbbells in order to
challenge yourself even more.
There’s no dancing, aerobics, or choreography to learn and you never have to get on the
floor. Enrollment is open to older adults 50+. All fitness levels are welcome… Simply work
out at your own pace! Instructors will adapt exercises to each individual limitations.
* Pre and post balance testing will be performed on each participant.
