Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) is a strength, balance and fitness program for adults 65 and older. Performing exercises that improve strength, balance and fitness are the single most important activity that adults can do to stay active and reduce their chance of falling. The entire curriculum of activities in the SAIL program can help improve strength and balance, if done regularly. SAIL is offered 2 times a week in a one hour class. SAIL exercises can be done standing or sitting.
The Sail program consists of the following components:
Warm Up 3-5 Minutes
Aerobics 18-20 minutes
Mandatory balance exercises 10 minutes
Mandatory strength Exercises 15-18 minutes
Stretching and education 8-10 minutes
Intended Target Audience: Primary focus is on community-dwelling older adults (65+) and people with a history of falls. The SAIL program is able to accommodate people with a mild level of mobility difficulty (e.g. people who are occasional cane users). The program focuses on improving flexibility, strength and balance.
