SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Fit Bodies, Inc. announced today that it has been selected by American Specialty Health Fitness, Inc. (ASH Fitness) to provide online fitness classes at international locations to the Silver&Fit® program's free, streaming public workouts.
"The Silver&Fit program launched its Fit at Home™ free senior workouts on Facebook Live and YouTube back in March, when gyms were first closing due to COVID-19," said Jaynie Bjornaraa, PhD., MPH, PT, and AVP of Digital Fitness Solutions with the Silver&Fit program. "Today, with at-home restrictions still in place around the country due to the pandemic, we believe that offering our followers and members an international experience with their online workouts helps to motivate them and expand their horizons. We know that a sense of exploration can help reduce feelings of depression and isolation in older adults."
Through the licensing arrangement with American Specialty Health Fitness, Fit Bodies, Inc. is hosting six "International Location" Silver&Fit classes a week, led by certified fitness instructors at all-inclusive resort locations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and Asia Pacific.
"Imagine taking a virtual yoga class on a warm, sunny beach in Mexico or the Dominican Republic," added Dr. Bjornaraa. "Through our Fit Bodies, Inc. arrangement, we're able to whisk our Facebook and YouTube followers away to a resort, park, or other exotic location where they can participate in Cardio, Yoga, Strength & Bodyweight, Flexibility & Balance, or Mixed Format types of classes."
"Fit Bodies, Inc. has been bridging the fitness gap at luxury resorts for 30 years, so what better way to bring an international flair and gorgeous settings to Silver&Fit's many fitness class followers," said Suzelle Snowden, owner and CEO of Fit Bodies, Inc. "Through our agreement with ASH Fitness, we can share the beauty of resort locations to a growing senior population while helping them stay healthy and fit at home." Snowden created Fit Bodies, Inc. and the Teaching Vacation Program over 30 years ago to offer quality programming to resort guests all over the world while they vacation at luxury resorts.
