Osteofit

Osteofit is an exercise intervention program developed in consultation with clinical specialists from BC Women's Hospital's Osteoporosis Program. Osteofit is designed to improve strength, balance and coordination as well as functional ability, independence, and quality of life, and is especially safe for those with osteoporosis and osteopenia. It is medically endorsed and based on published research. Osteofit addresses the need for an accessible community program providing the link between physiotherapy and group fitness classes for those who are at risk for falls and fractures. Participants do not need a referral and are encouraged to contact community centres directly.

Osteofit Instructors must be registered through British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA). For more information on how to acquire and maintain Osteofit registration, please visit the Osteofit website at www.osteofit.org
