In 2022, the CCAA and the City of London began working together to deliver exercise classes that enhance the health and well-being of community-based people aged 55+. These 10-to12-week programs have continued to expand since they began in September 2022.

Participants who enroll in these programs benefit from regular comprehensive functional fitness appraisals conducted by CCAA staff and students. These assessments take place at the beginning and upon completion of each 10-12 week session. They allow for changes in cardiovascular health, muscular strength, flexibility, agility, balance, and overall well-being to be monitored over time. Summer sessions do not include fitness assessments.

City of London-CCAA partner programs are led by CCAA certified instructors and consist of 60-minute group activity classes two or three times per week. They are designed to introduce and practice meaningful movement that will enhance mobility and function and include exercises that target strength, cardiovascular conditioning, mobility, and balance.

Registration for the next session opens May 7, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. Set your reminders to avoid disappointment!

Level 1 & 2 Options

Classes are available for two different levels of functional mobility:

  • The LEVEL 1 program is designed for older adults who have not engaged in an exercise routine recently or feel that their mobility is challenged in some or all components of functional fitness (strength, cardiovascular conditioning/stamina, flexibility, and balance).
  • The LEVEL 2 program is designed for older adults who are regular exercisers or feel that they currently have a moderate (very few limitations) to high level of functional mobility.

Some other programs offer periodic functional fitness assessments administered by the CCAA. These assessments measure the major components of fitness for older adults. The information provided by the assessments can enhance senior fitness programs by making the instructor and older adult aware of current levels of functional fitness.
