Healthy & Independent Living

Stay forever fit! Engaging in regular exercise will allow you to enjoy the retirement years with healthy and independent living. As we get older, many of us lose muscular strength and overall fitness. This makes us prone to falls and injuries and increases our liklihood to having chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

But it doesn't have to be that way! Exercise slows the many effects of aging that can result from being inactive. No matter what your current age, your cardiovascular health, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and balance can be improved!

Forever Fit provides supervised exercise activities including treadmill walking, stationary bicycling, rowing, strength training, flexibility exercises, and balance training.
