PHYSICAL ACTIVITY BASED PROGRAMS

ZOOMERS

Zoomers began in 2009 and originated in Saint John! We are now in the process of spreading it across        New Brunswick

About Us

Studies have demonstrated that participation in

physical activity can help to reduce the risk of

injuries related to falls among seniors.

Zoomers on the Go was created to reduce the

number of factors that can increase the risk of

falling for seniors.

UNB conducted research with the Zoomers on the Go program and found that Zoomers participants on-average are healthy and those aged 68+ who participate are less likely to be hospitalized. Significant differences were also found in physical function tests including arm strength, leg strength and endurance.

Quotes from Participants

Whoever came up with this exercise for seniors is a great idea, gets us out twice a week for good exercise, laughs and meeting new friends. And we have a fantastic instructor she puts so much energy in what she does. I hope this continues, its just great, and we are getting more and more people joining.
