Osteofit is a specially designed exercise and education program for those with osteoporosis and osteopenia, and those at risk of falling and require a safe and gentle strength, balance, and coordination program.

Osteofit will help you reach your fitness goals while respecting your limitations:

•    exercise for bone health and muscle strength, improve your balance;

•    gain knowledge on basic nutrition, falls prevention, active living;

•    smaller classes allow more individual attention;

•    Osteofit meets the needs of those who feel that a regular aerobic program is not right for them.

 

All Osteofit instructors receive specialized training in a course designed by researchers and clinical specialists from BC Women’s Osteoporosis Program. Osteofit instructors can modify exercises to suit individual needs and the program is continually updated based on the latest research.

Osteoporosis is a condition of decreased bone strength which increases the risk of bones breaking. It affects one in four women and one in eight men over 50. Healthy lifestyle choices, good nutrition, and regular exercise can help reduce the negative impact of osteoporosis.
