Forbes Living to Broadcast a Beneficial Senior Fitness Segment

Dec 23rd 2013 at 8:25 PM

The producers of Forbes Living are excited to announce they are working on a special senior fitness segment. There are now more Americans age 65 and older than at any other time in U.S. history, according to Census Bureau figures. Approximately 40 million people age 65 and over lived in the United States in 2010. Americans are living longer, and physical activity is the key to improve health and age successfully.

The segment will focus on the benefits seniors get from taking a fitness class geared to their generation. Some of the advantages older participants can gain are: improved posture, easier breathing, corrected balance, improved cognitive functioning and reaction time. Exercise cuts the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and depression, and the classes offer an opportunity to socialize and feel less isolated. “There are so many great fitness programs for the elderly available now.” said producer Lisa Vrancken, “Low-cost classes are being held in communities across the country through a variety of non-profit organizations.” The riveting show, hosted by one of the most successful celebrities in the nation -- Forbes Riley, will air this spring on most cable television networks.
