Public Health Resources for Idaho North Central District

Fit and Fall Proof™

Public Health - Idaho North Central District (PH-INCD) is offering the Fit and Fall Proof™ group physical activity program designed for older adults who want to improve their health and reduce their risk of falling.

Functional fitness is the primary theme for the Fit and Fall Proof™ program in Idaho. It is a group physical activity program designed for older adults who want to improve their health and reduce their risk of falling.

The program is designed to focus on various components associated with balance, including posture awareness and low impact exercises to improve strength, flexibility and endurance. Classes are lead by certified volunteers who have received instruction on exercise techniques and personal safety. Components of the Fit and Fall Proof™ program can reduce the risk of falls, help to maintain static and dynamic balance, take the fear out of falling and build confidence.

“No one is too old to enjoy the benefits of regular physical activity. Of special interest to older adults is evidence that muscle strengthening exercises can reduce the risk of falling and fracturing bones and can improve the ability to live independently.”
