Senior centers play a vital role in promoting healthy aging and supporting older adults as they age in place. With a focus on helping members maintain their independence, many senior centers offer exercise programming that enhances functional fitness, an important factor in an older adult’s ability to remain at home.
Because the fitness levels and functional abilities of older adults can vary widely, inclusive fitness equipment is a must. That’s why NuStep recumbent cross trainers are ideal for senior centers.
Designed for accessibility and ease of use, NuStep cross trainers deliver a low impact, total body cardio and strength workout – from a secure, seated position.
With regular NuStep workouts, older adults can build muscle strength, increase cardiovascular endurance and improve balance and mobility; all key indicators for maintaining the ability to perform activities of daily living and remaining independent for as long as possible.
