EnhanceFitness Spotlight: Ernestine Robinson and Charlesetta McDowell, Central Area Senior Center

We honor Ernestine Robinson and Charlesetta McDowell this month as they retire after 28 years of team-teaching EnhanceFitness!

Class participants in the WISE study, the precursor to the Lifetime Fitness program (now EnhanceFitness), they became two of the first class instructors. Their joyful Central Area Senior Center classes have always been very full with 30-40 participants and plenty of laughter. They have been visited by public health and aging leaders from around the world. Not only are Ernestine and Charlesetta excellent instructors, they are healthy lifestyle role models for all.

Thank you Ernestine, Charlesetta and Central Area Senior Center for your profound impact!

How Do We Keep People Engaged?: Health Promotion Program Cross-Referral

Helping older adults stay healthy as they age is a complex challenge. From preventing falls to managing chronic conditions, how do you activate people? Once activated, how do you keep them engaged?

As a 1:1 health coaching program, EnhanceWellness has long been used as a hub to refer to other health promotion interventions and community resources as captured in this video showing incorporation of A Matter of Balance. Recently, EnhanceFitness was adopted as the ongoing maintenance program for the Fit & Strong program by partners in South Dakota. How is your organization thinking about cross referral between programs and resources? What tools can we provide to support your work? Contact us
