Program Description

ESS offers free exercise and falls prevention classes for older adults and seniors in the Etobicoke community. Classes are provided at different levels to suit your fitness needs and abilities. They are led by certified senior fitness instructors or Registered Kinesiologists who understand the importance of staying active and preventing injury and falls.

Our exercise programs are developed to encourage older adults and seniors aged 55+ to become more active, participate in a social network, reduce the risk of injuries and falls, as well as enhance self-esteem and independence. All classes include a light cardio component and are designed to increase balance, strength and flexibility.
