The Pennsylvania Department of Aging offers this falls prevention exercise program to adults 50 years of age and older. The program is taught by Certified Workshop Leaders and is designed for people of all fitness levels. It consists of eight sessions presented as either a two session per week program over four weeks or a one session per week program over eight weeks. It starts with a warm-up, followed by strength and balance exercises and ends with a cool-down stretch. There are three levels of exercises, which enables participants to continue HSIM for as long as they like.

Healthy Steps in Motion (HSIM) strives to reduce the risk of falling by:

    • Building body strength
    • Increasing flexibility
    • Improving balance

HSIM promotes increased socialization and physical activities outside of the program among participants.

HSIM Workshop Leaders are certified through classroom instruction with an exercise physiologist to teach any of the three levels of strength and balance exercises.

A list of ongoing and upcoming programs can be found below.  Interested individuals can register by calling the contact information for the session they are interested in.  You may register for a program already in process.
