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
