As each generation lives longer there is a growing demand for a broad range of fitness and wellness programs that meet everything from their social to physical needs.


Seniors expect to have access to programs that will reduce the negative health effects of aging, improve quality of life, and increase their health span. Their top choice for joining a fitness center is typically a low-impact group fitness class.
