You only get one brain; you need to make it last a lifetime!
Fitness for Your Aging Brain is a unique program designed to keep older brains functioning at their best throughout a lifetime. Based on the latest neuroscience, geriatric and fitness research, the program combines four key components of maintaining a healthy brain as you age: cardiovascular exercise, mental challenge, rhythm-based movement, and simple fun. These educational and entertaining classes will get participants up, moving and ‘literally’ thinking on their feet.
Each video class contains a 5-minute Brain Health Tip on how participants can apply the latest healthy aging, scientific research to their daily lives. The other 55 minutes is devoted to a fun, energetic physical/mental exercise class designed specifically for older bodies and brains. The pre-recorded videos allow participants to do the classes on their own schedule and as many times as they wish.
