Did you know that the Uniontown Area YMCA offers many evidence-based programs to help people prevent themselves from suffering from a devastating fall?

National Falls Prevention Awareness Day is September 23: Falls Prevention Awareness Day is a day of action that encourages the public to learn their risk and access programs that can help reduce the risk for falls.

Our programs for falls prevention include: Enhance Fitness, Moving for Better Balance, and Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention. They all teach balance, strength, and awareness.

Moving For Better Balance is a 12-week, evidence based, group exercise program based on the principles of Tai Chi and designed especially for falls prevention. The program works to improve balance, muscle strength, flexibility, and mobility to enhance overall physical health. Participation in the program may also result in better mental health, reduced stress, improved memory and cognition, and increased self-esteem. Other evidence based, tai chi programs are coming to the YMCA in 2019, aimed at falls prevention and arthritis prevention and management. New cohorts of Moving for Better Balance begin several times per year. Participation in the initial 12-week cohort is free to everyone in the community. Starting with a participant’s second cohort, Moving for Better Balance is always free to members. Potential YMCA members may participate in additional cohorts for a fee of $120 per 12-week session.

 

Only 25 spaces per class! Call 724.438.2584 for more information or to register.
