Eat Well, Move More, Be Well
Eat Well, Move More, Be Well is aimed at helping older adults choose wholesome foods and adopt a more active lifestyle. Taking steps to achieve a healthier body weight is important, but those older than 70 years of age should strive to make changes gradually.

The four-part program is taught by a registered dietitian and exercise physiologist. Nutrition recommendations focus on choosing a calorie-balanced diet with particular emphasis on a heart-healthy eating pattern. Exercise tips focus on increasing physical activity in an age-appropriate fashion including recommendations for reducing the risk of falling, strength-conditioning and enhancing balance and coordination skills.

Senior Fitness Testing
Do you want to be stronger, more flexible and have better balance? Do you want to improve your ability to perform everyday activities safely and independently without excess fatigue? Participation in the Senior Fitness testing program is an important first step in achieving these goals. The good news is that much of the usual age-related decline in physical fitness is preventable and even reversible through proper attention to physical activity and exercise levels.

The Senior Fitness Test measures the physical capacity of older adults to perform normal everyday activities necessary for independent living. The SFT is designed to test individuals of varying abilities. You do not have to be physically fit to participate!

Testing will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at INTEGRIS Southwest, Medical Office Building, 4200 S. Douglas, Suite B-10.

The SFT is a two part program: first is the initial testing on Oct. 12, after which you will be given test results and suggestions for improvement. Follow up testing in April 2017 will help identify your progress and areas where you may need to focus attention for improved functioning.

Please take advantage of this health improvement opportunity. Register by Oct. 5 to make your SFT appointment.
