Geri-Fit, a 45-minute exercise and falls prevention program that helps rebuild strength that’s been lost through the aging process, will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from Oct. 18 through Dec. 1 at the Darb Snyder Senior Center in Millersburg.

Through participating in Geri-Fit, individuals can increase their overall strength; improve balance, flexibility and range of motion; and get an improved mental outlook. The progressive resistance strength training program uses bodybuilding techniques to increase strength.

Geri-Fit helps ensure a higher level of function, improvement in activities of daily living, and management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, pain management, depression and more. Most of the exercises are performed seated using a set of light dumbbell weights and exercise bands that will be provided by the Health District. However, participants have the option to do the exercises standing if they prefer.

Only 14 spots are available for the one-hour sessions that meet from 9:30-10:30 a.m., and participants must preregister by calling Kerry at the Holmes County General Health District at 330-674-5035 ext. 251.
