Strength training for seniors... the next generation of fitness!

Geri-Fit, the first strength training exercise program that increases strength, makes bones stronger, improves balance, and enhances flexibility

Geri-Fit® is an evidence-based group strength training exercise and falls prevention program for older adults of all senior ages and fitness levels. This tried and proven program helps rebuild strength that's been lost through the aging process.

The Geri-Fit® exercise program requires a set of light dumbbell weights, a sturdy chair, a stretch band for the stretches, and water to drink during the workout. There's no dancing, choreography or floorwork and both men and women can enroll.

The workout is considered a "progressive resistance exercise program" meaning that once the participants have built up enough strength using a set of 2 or 3-pound dumbbells, they can graduate to using heavier dumbbells weights in order to challenge themselves to become even stronger. In essence, Geri-Fit is bodybuilding for seniors! A typical Geri-Fitter will work up to using a set of 4 or 5-pound dumbbells within a year's time. Geri-Fit is a very safe and results driven exercise program that offers unsurpassed results. Seniors will literally turn back the hands of time each time they do the workout.

The Geri-Fit exercise program also incorporates stretching, stability and balance training as well as gait exercises. In addition to the wonderful strength gains that are accomplished with the program, seniors will also see an improvement in balance and functional capacity which should help lessen their chance of falls. The program is especially beneficial for those over the age of 75, however, any senior age and fitness level can participate. Just work out at your own pace!

The Geri-Fit program is held at senior centers, 50+ centers, active adult communities, physical therapy clinics, hospitals, wellness centers, country clubs, dance studios, community centers, yoga and pilates studios, gyms, rec centers, universities, churches, and any location that offers group exercise classes for older adults.

Benjamin Franklin once said that "dumbbells hold a lot of wealth of good in a handful of minutes" and what he said couldn’t be truer. Isn't it time to start feeling young again? Pick up your weights and let's get started!
