TaijiFit

TaijiFit is a mind/body workout that combines the best of traditional Tai Chi with modern Western fitness and is considered the number one new mind/body workout in North America. There are no set routines to memorize-just follow the lead of the instructor. This class is designed to improve overall fitness emphasizing balance, mobility, stability and timing of movement. No prior exercise is required.


Drums Alive

Experience a workout different from anything you have tried before. The class combines dynamic movements of aerobic dance with the pulsating rhythms of the drum. Using drum sticks and a stability ball, follow the choreography to improve physical fitness and mental acuity. Check the exercise class schedule for dates and times.


Matter of Balance

Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. During the class, participants will learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals for increasing activity, reduce fall risk factors at home and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.


Moving For Better Balance

An evidenced-based fall prevention program that uses the principles and movements of Tai Chi. These techniques will help older adults improve balance and increase confidence in doing everyday activities without the fear of falling. Registrations for participants who are 60 years old or older are paid for by a grant from the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging.


Senior Fitness Testing

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) students will administer the Senior Fitness Test, designed especially for those 55 and older. The test will assess balance, gait, strength, flexibility, endurance, power and agility. After completion, students will provide information about your confidential results, comparing to national averages and giving recommendations for improvements.
