How to Find the Right Gym For You

Note on Senior Gym Membership Programs
According to the International Council on Active Aging, increasing physical activity and remaining active is one of the best ways to stay healthy and happy as we age. For seniors, it keeps them strong and physically healthy and helps keep their minds sharper and their moods higher.
Maintaining a physically active lifestyle can help:
- Manage and reduce your chance of chronic diseases
- Reduce your risk of falls and additional injury
- Increase your physical functions
Visiting the gym is a great place to stay active and find community. Unfortunately, most gym membership programs are geared toward younger individuals and don’t consider seniors’ specific needs.
Senior gym membership programs focus on exercise classes tailored to people 65 years+. Such as balance training and adaptive exercises, including workouts completed sitting down. These classes vary but include Zumba, water aerobics, general exercise, and more.
The fitness program also features facilities with suitable equipment for senior citizens. The exercise instructors and personal trainers often either have experience working with an older demographic or are seniors themselves.
