Health & Wellness
Live your best life at every age!
We believe that all people deserve to achieve their health goals, regardless of age, income or any other factor. Still, we know that making changes doesn’t happen overnight — maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires access to resources, knowledge and social support.
To help people thrive at every age, Sound Generations offers a range of high-quality fitness classes, health workshops and other affordable resources designed with the specific needs of older adults in mind.
Research has shown that physical activity lowers the risk of disease and depression, improves physical and brain function — all while decreasing healthcare costs. And it’s fun! Our nationally renowned evidence-based EnhanceFitness classes include cardiovascular, strength, balance and flexibility in every one hour class.
In addition, each of our Senior Center sites throughout King County host a wide variety of fun, social ways to stay active such as dance classes like hula and tango, workshops for improving balance and adaptive yoga for people with disabilities.
Falling is NOT a normal part of aging. The risk of falling and fall-related problems increases every year as we age.
Maintain your strength and independence with Fall Prevention classes from EnhanceFitness and A Matter of Balance. In these classes, you will learn how to prevent falls or minimize damage upon falling.
We offer a wide variety of evidence-based health promotion programs including EnhanceWellness and PEARLS. EnhanceWellness offers one-on-one health coaching and is available nationwide. PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives) provides mental health care for those with depression.
