ZOOMERS ON THE GO

Participant Information

Congratulations on taking steps to improve your mobility and maintain your independence. Becoming a participant requires just a few simple steps, which can be found below. 

Is this Program for Me?

Zoomers on the Go is an exercise-based fall prevention program delivered twice a week for 12-week. This program is for those who may have concerns about falling, difficulty walking or balancing without support.
 
Each class is peer-led by a certified volunteer leader over the age of 50 years. Peer-leaders help participants feel as though leaders understand what may be happening in their daily lives.

This program is targeting people who are:

  • Currently inactive

  • Uncomfortable balancing without support

  • Not taking part in a supervised exercise program

meeting new friends."

Getting Started 


Our Zoomers on the Go program is offered in-person and online. 

Our in-person classes are offered in areas where we have a leader to run the program and a location to hold it. Refer to the section below to see where the classes are currently available. 

Our online option is for those living in an area without a Zoomers on the Go leader or a location to hold it. It is also for those who prefer exercising from the comfort of their home.

To take part in the Zoomers on the Go online program, you will need:
         1.    Internet connection 
         2.    Device (tablet/computer)

Those who sign-up for the online class will receive all the necessary equipment for the course (ball/band) through the mail.
 
You can start your in-person or online journey with us today by filling out our online registration form. For more information on our program and the exercises, please refer to our pamphlet.
