Kuna Library is excited to announce that Fit and Fall Proof is back!  With one hugely successful session under our belts, we’re ready to rock for 12 more weeks of senior exercise.

What Is Fit & Fall Proof?

Fit and Fall Proof is a fitness class designed specifically for seniors.  A service of the Central Health District, this class focuses on strength, mobility, and balance.  There are no fast-paced dance moves here, but you will get a great workout.  For anyone ages 65 and over, this class can help keep you mobile and independent.

How Do I Join a Class?

Stop by the library during any regular class time (Mondays and Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.).  Come a few minutes early so that you can fill out an emergency contact form and the PAR-Q (a basic health questionnaire).  Once you’ve completed your paperwork and taken a very short walking test, you’re in!  We’ll add you to the list and you can attend anytime.

What Kind of Fitness Level Do I Need to Have to Participate?

There is no standard fitness level needed.  Anyone can benefit from and enjoy Fit and Fall Proof, from the very healthy and active to those with minimal mobility.  All of the exercises included in the class are designed so that you can work to your fitness level, not anybody else’s.  We have both standing and sitting class leaders, and you’re free to stop and rest as much or as little as you need. 

What Should I Wear or Bring?

Wear comfortable clothes that you can bend and stretch in.  All you need to bring when you sign up is your emergency contact information (who to call, your doctor’s name and phone number). That’s it!

How Much Does It Cost?

Fit and Fall Proof is absolutely free.  There is no cost to join and no cost for continued attendance. 

How Often Do I Need to Come to Class?

As often as you’re able.  You’re not required to come to any specific number of classes, though patrons who attend twice a week tend to see the most physical improvement.

Will the Senior Bus Take Me to Fit and Fall Proof?

Yes, the senior bus has been a fantastic partner, and a number of class members use the local senior bus to get to the library.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask, and don’t forget to spread the word about this fun class that’s totally free for seniors.
