Senior Fitness: Exercise Programs Tailored for Older Adults

Woman talks to senior about exercise programs tailored for older adults

Exercise programs tailored for older adults can completely enhance the overall health and well-being of individuals as they age. Older adults are at a higher risk for developing certain chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Regular exercise can help prevent or manage these conditions, improve mobility and balance, reduce falls and injuries, and enhance mental health.
