Fit & Fall Proof™ Classes for Seniors
• Every 18 seconds an older adult is treated in an emergency department for a FALL!
• Every 35 minutes someone in the population dies as a result from their injuries! (CDC)
• More than 90% of Hip Fractures among older adults are a result of a fall!
These sobering statistics are the entire reason the Fit & Fall Proof™ fitness program was created. Fit & Fall Proof™ is designed to help senior citizens prevent injuries and the subsequent loss of independence. Class participants learn simple exercises to increase strength, balance and endurance, which can help prevent the accidental falls and tripping sometimes associated with age.
