We offer FIT Functional Fitness® exercise classes each day at The Commons on Marice. FIT Functional Fitness® is designed to go beyond typical senior fitness programs to help improve residents’ core strength, balance and cardiovascular health, as well as promote relaxation. The targeted exercises are created to deliver the maximum benefit for each participant. The goal is to increase overall health and wellbeing, reduce potential for falls, and encourage residents to remain active. Where possible, the program can reduce the need for assistive mobility devices.
FIT Functional Fitness® incorporates four fitness programs, taking current health levels into consideration and allowing all residents to participate, no matter their current functional fitness level. As their strength and endurance increases, residents may choose to progress to the other programs offered.
FIT to be Strong® – The core of the FIT Functional Fitness® program, FIT to be Strong® incorporates strength building exercises both seated and lying down, and balance exercises while standing.
FIT to Stretch® – Stretching exercises aimed at decreasing pain and improving range of motion, while promoting relaxation.
FIT to Pedal® – Endurance-based exercise where participants use a stationary pedaler.
FIT to Balance® – A progressive program designed to enhance the time individuals spend on their feet, improving endurance and balance skills. Participants can work their way up to having more balance confidence, which equates to fewer falls and increased independence.
