More About National Senior Health & Fitness Day

Put on your sneakers for National Senior Health & Fitness Day. On the last Wednesday in May each year, approximately 100,000 senior adults will participate in activities across the United States for this national observance.

Many organizations offer special events especially for seniors:

Health Clubs
Area Agencies on Aging
Houses of Worship
Malls/Shopping Centers
Park & Recreation Departments
Retirement Committees
Senior Centers
State/Local/Aging Departments

Seniors benefit in numerous ways from physical activity. Exercises can be done at home, a community pool or a local center. And seniors aren’t limited to just one type of exercise either. There are many to choose from. And many activities can be modified to fit any limitations. Yoga, walking and swimming are all low impact routines that offer a range of benefits late in life and for all abilities. Some of the benefits include:

reduce fall risk and increase the ability to live independently
maintain strength, healthy joints and muscles
helps reduce or control blood pressure
reduce the risk of colon cancer and diabetes
ease symptoms of anxiety
offer community and companionship when done in groups
reduces and prevents arthritis joint swelling and pain
