Enhance Fitness

EnhanceFitness is geared toward older adults of all fitness levels. If you have a chronic condition, such as arthritis, you may be able to gain more strength and  independence. You will feel energized—physically, mentally and socially—and be surrounded by people who care about your success.

The facts tell the story

The evidence-based EnhanceFitness program has been nationally recognized as a safe and effective physical activity program for older adults by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US Department of Health and Human Services, US Administration on Aging and the National Council on Aging.

Research has shown that among older adults who participate in EnhanceFitness, health costs were lowered by close to $1,000 and 9 out of 10 people stay with the program. In addition, 99 percent say they’d recommend the program to a friend.

The program benefits a wide range of adults because they are encouraged to move at their own pace. The program meets them where they are in terms of their physical ability and helps them gain strength, flexibility and balance.

What To Expect:
  • Classes meet three times per week for 60-minutes each.
  • Some people will be standing, some will be seated—and some will use the chairs to hold onto for support.
  • Participants move at a pace that’s comfortable for them.
  • The class focuses on strength, flexibility, movement and balance.
  • Participants will make friends who will support them and cheer them on.
Program Goals:
  • 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
