Fitness Exercises

Community Links developed Fitness in the Kitchen with the help of physiotherapists. It is a series of 8 basic exercises for strength, flexibility and balance that can be done anywhere in the home – including the kitchen! Survey results from older adults (55+years) indicate main reasons for using Fitness in the Kitchen: convenience, no cost, and can be carried out as part of everyday household routines. Health and wellness facilitators describe the program as a good example of how to incorporate exercise into one’s everyday life.
