Retirement Centres: Keep Active with GTfit

GTfit seniors

Enjoy fresh air and exercise with GTfit outdoor fitness equipment for ages 50+

Experts claim that seniors should aim to be as active as possible. Studies show that older adults who stay physically active by exercising experience long-term health benefits. 

Incorporating a regular exercise routine can improve health for people with diseases and disabilities, as well as cognitive function. Exercising in nature has even more added benefits since it helps reduce stress and increase self-esteem.

GameTime, North America’s leading manufacturer of commercial playgrounds, custom play spaces and outdoor fitness equipment, is offering the best of both world’s with its uniquely designed GTfit outdoor fitness equipment, offering seniors the chance to improve their health and wellness while taking in the fresh air. 

GTfit is a well-rounded fitness program in the comforts of your own backyard. The GTfit line incorporates the essential four elements of fitness (aerobic, muscle, core balance/flexibility) to help improve overall health and quality of life. 

The NEW 50+ products are specifically designed to provide extra support for active, older adults who want to improve or maintain strength, balance and flexibility. These eight products (like the Stair Stepper, Step-Up Platform, Chest Press) offer an ergonomic design and soft, durable grips suitable for all ages and abilities. 

“These products look familiar to equipment you would see in your local gym but they are designed with a sleek, compact look to blend in with the natural environment,” said Play! Sales Asssociate Rob Walkowiak, adding that all GTfit products are constructed of durable, high-quality materials that are weather resistant and backed by the industry’s best warranty. 

The GTfit line for adults ages 50+ is a perfect addition to any retirement centre. Not only does it have residents feeling active and refreshed from being outdoors, but it also provides opportunities for social engagements as people congregate about the equipment.

But what about the grandchildren? GTfit is a hit with parents and grandkids since it offers a complete fitness program conveniently located in plain view of a playspace. Parents and grandparents can enjoy a full body workout while keeping an eye on their children as they play. Inspired by their grandparents, many kids decide to jump in and workout as well. 

No playground? Play! by Crozier, a leader in playgrounds, spray pads, sports goals and outdoor fitness equipment, has you covered. Play! is a proud distributor of the exclusive GTfit line, as well as GameTime’s playground equipment. In addition, Landmark by Crozier, a division of Crozier Enterprises, can provide shelters to keep the equipment under the shade and away from rain and show.
