City of Montreal launched a new at-home fitness program for seniors
The program, called “Le GO pour bouger!” is a colour-coded fitness plan meant to help seniors get exercise while they’re stuck at home.
Was recently launched after health officials decided to take action against all the risks that come with confinement.
The program has colour-coded exercise plans designed for different levels of pre-existing physical fitness—people are meant to pick which category they fit into, and follow that plan, whether it’s red, the level for the fittest people, or blue, a category designed for people who use a walker, wheelchair or other mobility aid.
The goal is to ensure seniors stay healthy, both mentally and physically, while living in isolation.
