National Associationn of Seniors Fitness is proud to offer a valuable free service for older adults and for senior fitness specialists.
All across North America millions of older adults are seeking to regain or maintain physical health, vitality and independence. And, they are actively seeking qualified professionals to help them achieve these goals. In recent months numerous articles extolling the benefits of exercise programs for older adults have appeared in major publications nationwide including the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and many more. All have one question: “Where can I find responsible, safe senior exercise programs operated by qualified fitness professionals in my area?” To enable us to respond to these requests faster and more completely our Association of Seniors Fitness is initiating the Mature Fitness Network.
What is the Senior Fitness Network?
For older adults it’s a one stop source to find quality senior exercise programs. The list will include fitness programs available from health clubs, retirement facilities, social service and civic organizations, individual practitioners working on a contract basis and more. This information will be categorized by region and posted on the internet. When seniors who don’t have internet access call seeking a local exercise program, we will mail them a listing for their area.
For older adult fitness specialists it’s an excellent way to announce your exercise services to the public. Senior Fitness Network serves as a cost-free referral service for you by informing potential new clients about your exercise program.
How do I take part?
To list your older adult fitness program or facility, please e-mail your information to us at [email protected]. To be included, fitness programs must safely and conveniently accommodate older adult participants and be operated by qualified fitness professionals. Please limit copy to approximately 50 words (400 characters maximum). Additional notes on submitting your information and sample listings are shown below.
Is there a fee for listing my exercise program on the network?
No. The Fitness Network is a free public service of the Association to help provide older adults with the resources they need to maintain and/or improve their personal fitness, to promote the senior fitness industry, and to help dedicated senior fitness specialists serving this growing segment of the population. Neither the organization listing the service or the individual accessing the list will be charged a fee.
Can all types of responsible older adult exercise programs be included on the Senior Fitness Network resource list?
Yes. Senior exercise programs offered at large fitness facilities, community centers, health clubs, churches, retirement communities, park and recreation departments, colleges and universities, even programs offered in the client’s home are all eligible for listing. The Senior Fitness Network invites corporations, non-profit and government organizations, individual contractors, everyone who offers a responsible older adult fitness program run by qualified fitness professionals to submit a listing of their services.
