Stay Active and Independent for Life
SAIL stands for Stay Active and Independent For Life! The SAIL exercise class is a strength, balance, and fitness program for community dwelling older adults that meets two to three times per work for one hour. Performing exercises that improve strength, balance, and fitness is the single most important activity adults can do to stay active and reduce their chances of falling. The entire curriculum of activities in the Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) program can help improve strength and balance, if done regularly.
Who is SAIL for?
The SAIL program is suitable for diverse participants (e.g., age, gender, functional status) and targets community-dwelling older adults and people with a history of falls. The SAIL program is appropriate for all older adults who are in need of a strength and balance program to remain active and to reduce the risk of falling.
Who Leads a SAIL Class?
Classes are led by qualified SAIL Program Leader who has completed SAIL training. Becoming a SAIL Program Leader is easy. SAIL Program Leader training is available to any community members or fitness, exercise science and healthcare professional who is interested in leading a SAIL class.
