Fit and Falls Proof
Fit and Fall Proof (FFP) is an exercise-based program to prevent falls. It assists older adults to improve muscle strength, while increasing balance, posture and flexibility. It also improves mobility, endurance and walking gait.
Class leader Helen Franklin has been with the program since Weiser launched the program in 2009.
“Every session I am so pleased with not only the number of community members taking advantage of this opportunity, but also the improvements I see in those that attend weekly, Franklin shared. The FFP curriculum was developed by professors from Boise State University and the College of Southern Idaho. Exercise classes are led by trained volunteer instructors who focus on functional fitness that can reduce the risk of falling and help older adults maintain their independence.”
