Aging Stronger, Living Longer
Fitness. Education. Social.
A program designed to help members live life to the fullest
The active aging adult population
is the largest and most diverse
demographic in the country. More
than 10,000 people will turn 65
in America every day for the next
18 years. A hundred years ago, life
expectancy was around 50 years.
Today we live to 80 and beyond.
That’s why The Fort Worth Club
has launched Aging Stronger,
Living Longer, a program designed
to help members enjoy those
additional years to the fullest. Diet,
exercise and how we think about
ourselves plays a much larger
role on who we become, and the
great thing is, it’s never too late
Aging Stronger classes focus on functional movements with balance and core at the heart of each. Classes are specifically designed with the older adult in mind. Strength training is important as we age because it can improve balance, slow bone density and muscle loss, and improve sleep.
Periodic seminars and “lunch and learn” events include topics such as nutrition, sleep, brain health, cognitive function and more. Some of the Aging Stronger, Living Stronger program partners include Texas Health Resources and the University of North Texas Health Science Center. Bone density screenings, blood pressure testing and glucose testing events are also offered.
As we age we naturally become less mobile and more likely to stay at home rather than get out with friends and move around. Aging Stronger social events bring together members with similar interests for public outings and happy hours, wine tastings and other social events.
Our certified yoga instructors will lead you through stretching and positional exercises to promote balance, flexibility and overall good health and well-being.
