Join us for Senior Strong! CHWB Physical & Mental Fitness Month (Webinar) on Wednesday May 26 at 5:30 PM.

It’s Physical and Mental Fitness Month at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, so grab your sneakers and get ready to become an expert on what it means to be Senior Strong! Join experts from the Center for Health & Wellbeing to learn all about health and fitness as we age, including an in-depth look at the risks associated with falls and tips for prevention, ways to avoid illness and exercises that increase strength and flexibility.

In this program, physical therapy professionals from AdventHealth Sports Medicine & Rehab and fitness experts representing the Peggy & Philip B. Crosby Wellness Center will share information that is critical to your senior health and fitness. For example, osteoporosis and the broken bones it can cause are not part of our normal aging process, but it can profoundly affect us.

By participating in this program, you can expect to:

  • understand the importance of weight training for older adults;
  • gain insight into fall prevention and the importance of it in your every-day;
  • and learn additional exercise and stretching tips to maintain a physical and healthy lifestyle.


This program is presented by the Center for Health & Wellbeing and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with AdventHealth.
