It is a free 8-session program, but each session is only an hour in length. A physical skills screening is done at the first session to assess for fall risk.
Exercises are done each session - begins with a low-intensity workout increasing to a moderate-intensity workout. Resistance bands are introduced in session Number 3. There are advanced exercise options.

Participants receive a Guide with the exercises, hand-outs and resource material.
