Enrollment is Now Open! 

Sessions will take place at various times each week making it easy to join and participate in the program.

Members who join Live Long Live Strong are asked to attend two sessions per week for 12 consecutive weeks.

This program is FREE and open to Atlantic County residents who are age 60 and over.

While physical fitness is important to everyone, as you age, regular exercise becomes more important for your body and mind. The comprehensive wellness program funded by the Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services “Live Long Live Strong” offers residents of Atlantic County the opportunity to do just that. Throughout the program participants explore a variety of exercises and lectures that provide the building blocks for healthy living.

The four main building blocks of fitness include cardiovascular exercise, functional strength training, flexibility, and balance. Each works with the other to prevent loss of bone mass and improve endurance, independence and capability in daily activities.

In addition to weekly sessions, participants have access during the ten-week program to the fitness center at the Katz JCC in Margate, which offers over 85 weekly group fitness classes, access to the indoor pool and aquatic classes, and the opportunity to purchase personal training sessions.
