Enhance®Fitness provides moderate-impact classes with high-impact results.

Across the country, a growing number of Y associations offer Enhance®Fitness, an evidence-based group exercise program for older adults that uses simple, easy-to-learn movements that motivate individuals (particularly those with arthritis) to stay active throughout their life.

Here are some of the changes participants have noticed:
• More energy
• Better balance
• Increases in upper body and lower body strength
• More flexibility and range of motion
• Better sleep
• More feelings of happiness
• Sense of independence
• In addition to the physical benefits, research has shown that, among older adults who participate in Enhance®Fitness, health costs were lowered each year.

Our aim: To help you feel better.

Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults. Those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; they will never have to do anything that hurts. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and increase the weight they use for strength training at their own pace.

Enhance®Fitness is a 16-week program that meets three times a week at our Deer Path Branch. Registration is required.
