Healthy Steps in Motion
Healthy Steps in Motion (HSIM) is the exercise portion of a two-part comprehensive falls prevention program and is endorsed by Silver & Fit . HSIM is an exercise program that is designed for people of all fitness levels. The program is a one-hour session twice a week for eight weeks, and is taught by certified instructors; it starts with a warm-up, followed by strength & balance exercises and ends with a cool down-stretch. There are three levels so participants can continue HSIM as long as they like.
HSIM strives to reduce the risk of falling by
- Building body strength
- Increasing flexibility
- Improving balance
“Greatest improvements were in overall strength and balance; less depression and healthier eating.”
“One participant started this class with a walker and is now walking without one.”
"My doctor stated that my health issues have improved across the board. Keep it up."
