Although developed for seniors, Fitness Forever is appropriate for anyone, any age with a physical condition such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure. Fitness Forever is a nationally recognized, award winning medically based program featuring exercises that will enhance and maintain the good health and fitness of seniors. If followed regularly, participants will see improved heart rate and blood pressure, increased mobility, reduced joint pain, and overall improvement in functional fitness and health.
This medically-designed, precedent-setting video has won prestigious awards such as the MediMedia FREDDIE Award and The National Council on Aging Molly Mettler Award for Excellence in Health Promotion. In addition, Fitness Forever is the only workout video approved by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
The video features a functional fitness workout including cardiovascular fitness development, strength training, flexibility, relaxation and meditation in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Fitness Forever is specifically designed to meet the needs of seniors from a variety of health levels.

The program also includes an M.D. Update Log providing the senior with an effective tool to track their exercise along with a mechanism to report progress back to their physician.
