Senior fitness helps prevent falls

Posted

Falling does not have to be part of normal aging. That's why Live 2 B Healthy is offering a free senior fitness and balance workshop that helps seniors improve their balance, strength and flexibility.

“Older adults want to stay active, independent and safe in their homes, but many worry about their risk of falling,” said Claire Allen, of Live 2 B Healthy. “In fact, one in four Americans over the age of 65 falls every year. Every older adult has the power to prevent a fall.”

Part of the 10th annual National Falls Prevention Awareness Day, the workshop begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22 at Kipling Meadows, 7175 Kipling St., Arvada. Seniors and their family members and friends are welcome.

A certified personal trainer from Live 2 B Healthy will lead the workshop, which includes fun, fitness, a fall prevention handout and other giveaways.

“Our residents have a great time in class,” said Lee Carlson, executive director of Kipling Meadows, which is opening the class to all Arvada-area seniors. “We encourage community building and social interaction among all seniors.”

For more information, call Claire Allen at 720-485-4124.
