Welcome to the Walton County Senior Fitness Website
The Walton County Senior Fitness Program
Various factors are involved in optimizing an individual’s fitness
level and health prospects. One essential ingredient, of course, is
the performance of regular physical exercise. For persons who
have remained physically active throughout life, the outlook for
enjoying a healthy and vital old age is especially promising.
However, increasing the physical activity of sedentary older
adults also produces dramatic positive results.
Walton County Senior Fitness program has not only provided our
senior citizens with a good quality physical fitness program that
is designed with their health and safety in mind, but provides a
way for them to socialize too. We also provide literature on
healthy ideas, recipes, and a monthly calendar. I hold
certifications in this area with IFA and the American Senior
Fitness Assoc., and have created a fun and safe workout that does
not require quick changes or difficulty, and can be adapted to
different age levels.
There is no charge, which makes it easy on a senior’s fixed
income. They are more likely to stick to the program, and gain
the rewards of a healthier lifestyle. These seniors range in age
from 50-91. They are all working out at their own level of
abilities whether they are standing or seated. The program
stresses nutrition and healthy eating habits, provides 30 minutes
of Cardio (consisting of simple dance moves and aerobics) and 30
minutes of weight bearing exercise, and/or chair exercises, and
It is a great chance to meet new friends and socialize with others.
Everyone has a good time, and exercise becomes a fun thing to
By 2020 the elderly segment of our American population will
exceed seven million. Senior Fitness programs are very much in
demand and needed. Walton County has a very active and unique
recreation program for our senior population, and many senior
citizens are taking advantage of the benefits. Our program works
hand in hand with the Walton Wellness program, local Senior
Centers, Assisted Living, and hospitals. We have received
donations from Community Grants and local businesses.
Many are seeing results in lower blood sugar and blood pressure.
Their self-confidence gets a boost, and some are sleeping better
too. Brain function, balance, flexibility, strength and endurance
all improve, not to mention weight loss. Our Senior citizens in
Walton County have an opportunity to improve their health and
live very happy active lives. Walton County Parks & Recreation
is proud of this program and it’s contribution to the health and
well being of our senior citizens.
