Use it or lose it…
Move Baby, Move! is a fitness program that serves to educate and involve
older adults in physical activity and good nutrition throughout their
lifespan. Our focus has been on providing our services to populations that
have been historically underserved.
In study after study, regular workouts have been proven to insulate us
from heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, stroke, osteoporosis and
diabetes. Our doctors are always telling us we need to do it…So why are we
not exercising? Perhaps because it involves too much work and too little
fun! Well, you owe it to yourself to experience the chair exercise program
that utilizes music by New Orleans’ artist John Boutte and evidence-based
movements to deliver a truly unique experience in older adult wellness:
Move Baby, Move!
We started our program in New Orleans in 2005. We collaborated with the
Volunteers of America, the Archdiocese of New Orleans, and the Orleans and
Jefferson Parish Councils on Aging. Our program achieved rapid success and
we were credited with getting our participants to function without the
need of walkers or wheelchairs.
