Free Exercise Classes for Seniors
Healthy Steps in Motion
HSIM (Healthy Steps In Motion) is an exercise program designed for people of all fitness levels. It incorporates warm-up, balance, weight resistance/strength training and cool down segments as the program foundation. HSIM was designed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and is sponsored by Blair Senior Services, Inc. The program is offered to area older adults at NO COST.
HSIM promotes regular physical activity, which provides many benefits for older adults. Research has shown that older adults who practice weight resistance training improve their balance and coordination, which may decrease their risk for falls. Exercise also can reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancers, increase bone density, strengthen the heart and lungs, reduce stress, and boost energy levels.
