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 to start.

Fitness

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.  

Education

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.

Social

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.
