Supervised Exercise Programs Just For You

Get Up & Go offers a very different kind of exercise environment, one designed just for seniors. Unlike a large gym, our facilities at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Boston are friendly, intimate, and safe. Our state-of-the-art equipment is designed for geriatric fitness, allowing you to progress in slow, steady increments.

Get Up & Go begins with a comprehensive fitness evaluation by our experienced exercise professionals to determine whether the program is right for you. This evaluation includes the following:

  • Review of your medical and fitness history
  • Physical performance assessment
  • Strength ability testing

Exercise physiologists who specialize in fitness for older adults will develop a personalized exercise program for you. We focus on progressive strength, balance, and endurance or cardiovascular training. As your fitness improves, our staff knows how to motivate you and take you to the next level.

Whether you need to regain strength after a surgery or illness, learn how to better manage a chronic illness, or simply want to maintain health and strength as you age, Get Up & Go can help you meet your goals.

Hours and Location

Get Up & Go is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Fees
