Geri-Fit is an evidence-based program recognized by the Department of Health and Human Services. This group strength training exercise program is ideal for all ages and fitness levels. The Geri-Fit exercise program incorporates seated stretching, stability and balance training as well as gait exercises. Geri-Fit lessens the chances of falls, increases functional capacity, helps rebuild strength that's been lost through the aging process, and it helps ease arthritic pain that is associated with aging bodies. Offered at the Nir Family YMCA in partnership with the New Hanover County Senior Center.
Geri-Fit classes are provided at no charge to seniors 60 years of age and older by the New Hanover County Senior Resource Center (NHCSRC), attributed to the generous support and provision of space by the Nir Family YMCA-YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina.
Geri-Fit is not designed, intended, or funded for individuals under the age of 60.*YMCA Membership is not required to participate - open to the community!
