The “Better Strength, Better Balance! / En force, en équilibre!” fall prevention group exercise program is starting again in April 2015 for adults 65+ in Ottawa.  This is a beginner level class for those wishing to improve strength and balance.  Strong muscles, strong bones and better balance will make you more mobile and less likely to fall.

The “Better Strength, Better Balance! / En force, en équilibre!” program will provide participants with:
·        Instruction by a certified fitness instructor to increase muscle strength, balance and coordination.
·        Education on preventing falls provided by Ottawa Public Health nurses. 
There is no cost to participate in the program which is offered twice a week for 12 weeks.

Registration begins on March 2nd 2015. For more information or to register, please call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744.

The “Better Strength, Better Balance!/ En force, en équilibre!” program is funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and is a collaborative effort between Ottawa Public Health and Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services..
