Two Southwest Michigan YMCAs are preparing to launch Enhance®Fitness, an evidence based exercise program for older adults with arthritis. Thirteen instructors were trained and program launches will begin soon.
YMCA leaders will work with healthcare providers throughout the area to refer older adults into this life-changing program which builds cardiovascular health, muscular strength, balance, agility, and flexibility, while reducing arthritis pain & risk for falls.
Of course, the best part of the program are the friendships that are made and the fun that everyone has improving their health together. Congratulations to these instructors & to the YMCA leaders who are embarking on this important work.
