Build Your Strength With Vivo

February 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Did you know we lose 5–8% of our lean muscle every 10 years after age 30 and it increases after we turn 60? Most older adults don’t get enough protein or engage in strength training to avoid sarcopenia, the loss of muscle tissue that is a natural part of the aging process.
OLLI at Eckerd College is partnering with VIVO to offer our members the opportunity to build strength and improve balance and mobility with live online strength classes specifically designed for older adults. Our collaboration with Vivo allows us to offer these classes to our members at a 45% discount. These classes offer a unique opportunity for those who are new to exercise or interested in beginning/resuming strength building. Maintaining strength is key to preserving your posture, balance, mobility and independence. And strength training even improves sleep!

Muscle strength and balance are critical to maintaining health and independence as we age. Without additional strength training, most older adults will suffer a loss of muscle tone that can negatively impact their balance and mobility. Vivo, a live, online, interactive strength-building course customized to your fitness level, helps you attain physical fitness. Vivo exercise sessions consist of cognitive, balance and strength exercises. Classes are small and instruction is individualized. Certified personal trainers, skilled in working with older adults, provide modified exercises to meet each student’s fitness needs. Classes meet twice a week for 45 minutes. Participants receive personal strength assessments at the beginning and end of the course that measure their strength, balance and mobility — a critical health strategy for people over 55. Whether you are new to exercise or exercise regularly, Vivo will help you build your strength. Active Skill Learning.

Please note: Initial personal assessments need to be completed between within the two weeks prior to the program start date. Registered participants will receive an email with a link to schedule their assessment and a waiver. Final strength assessments will be completed the week after the program’s end date.

This online program is not included in OLLI at Eckerd College’s e-class all-access pass. Sessions are not recorded. There is a $50 non-refundable fee included in the tuition cost. This session offers classes on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. ET beginning February 5. Limited to 8 members. Deadline to register is January 22 in order to receive welcome kits in the mail before the first session. Post-class assessments will be scheduled individually the week of April 3.

IMPORTANT: By participating in this activity you are giving OLLI at Eckerd College permission to share your contact information with Vivo in order to schedule assessments and mail Welcome Kits directly to your residence.
