  • HONESDALE - Healthy Steps in Motion is an exercise program that incorporates warm-up, balance, weight resistance/strength training and cool down segments as its program foundation. HSIM was designed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and is offered to area older adults at no charge.

          It promotes regular physical activity, which provides many benefits for older adults. Research has shown that older adults who practice weight resistance training improve their balance and coordination and may decrease their risk for falls. Exercise can also reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancers, increase bone density, strengthen the heart and lungs, reduce stress and boost energy levels.
