NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — In honor of National Fitness Month, Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) from AARP is celebrating its growing community of older adults with a variety of free virtual classes, through its flagship Senior Planet program, aiming to help seniors flip the script on aging, get active, build strength and have fun while doing it. To cap off the month’s activities, Senior Planet will also host a virtual “Meet and Move,” where this year’s Senior Planet Sponsored Athletes will share their inspiring fitness journeys with older adults around the nation.
Now in its fourth year, the Senior Planet Sponsored Athlete Program highlights the remarkable athletic feats that older adults aged 60+ can accomplish – along with the importance of staying active and fit. This year’s Sponsored Athletes participate in weightlifting, pickleball, walking and more. Each Senior Planet Sponsored Athlete challenges outdated stereotypes about aging and fitness, while inspiring their peers to take the initial steps to improve their own health.
To keep the excitement and activities going throughout the month, Senior Planet will offer a number of health and wellness classes, including Morning Stretch, Fit Fusion Workout, Easy-to-Follow Tai Chi, Stronger Bones, Chair Yoga and Strength and Stability. Older adults across the nation can join free virtual exercise classes online at www.seniorplanet.org.
“We’re passionate about helping older adults get connected and stay active,” said OATS from AARP Executive Director Tom Kamber. “Senior Planet offers a wide range of free classes designed to offer something for everyone, from strength exercises that help build muscle to stretch classes that encourage flexibility. Our goal is to make fitness fun and approachable. In classes, older adults aren’t just building strength and confidence – they’re making friends, too.”
According to AARP, regular exercise could be essential to ensuring older adults maintain healthy and strong lives, from possibly stalling memory loss to helping people live longer. OATS is on a mission to help older adults make that happens with courses and programs that help them thrive in the modern age.

What’s new to vívoactive 5

Day or night, vívoactive 5 tracks heart rate3, respiration, Pulse Ox, stress and more. While sleeping, it can monitor heart rate variability to help provide users with a deeper understanding of their overall health. What’s more, women can track their menstrual cycle and pregnancy and receive exercise and nutrition guidance.
Whether coming or going, stay connected with vívoactive 5 by receiving text messages, emails and alerts right from the wrist when paired with a compatible smartphone. Those with a compatible Android™ smartphone can also respond to texts using the on-watch keyboard and view photos directly from the watch screen. Safety and tracking features help provide peace of mind by sending a message with the user’s live location (when available) to chosen emergency contacts if they feel unsafe or if an incident is detected5.
