 Feeling Fit Clubs

For more information send us an email or phone 858-495-5998

Various sites throughout San Diego County are offering this functional fitness class as part of a comprehensive program addressing the exercise and socialization components of wellness. All classes are one hour in duration and meet two-three times each week. Exercises are designed to strengthen major muscle groups with emphasis on posture, gait, and functional fitness. Participants progress from lighter to heavier weights, as muscles and joints adapt. All moves can be performed from a seated position, although participants are encouraged to stand for most of the class.

What do we expect to accomplish with this program?

The goals of the Feeling Fit Clubs are to offer a safe, comfortable environment for older adults to engage in physical activity as well as to help older people develop and maintain their level of physical fitness. These programs also encourage social interaction, fun, and help to build self-esteem. In addition, this program helps to educate participants about the benefits of exercise, health, and fitness components.

The expected outcome for each participant is improvement in his/her ability to maintain independence and activities of daily living as well as:

  • Better balance
  • Less falls
  • Increased strength
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mood
  • Better digestion
  • And more resistance to chronic illnesses
