PEPPI stands for Peer Exercise Program Promotes Independence

 

PEPPI is a physical activity program that is designed especially for older adults.  It is safe for most people.

 

You will do stretching, strength training, balance and walking.

It is appropriate for inactive older adults, beginners, intermediates, those with chronic diseases or conditions, and people who use walkers, canes or wheelchairs.

 

Physical activity helps reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases, aids in the management or chronic disease, and improves the ability to function and stay independent.

 

You also should be able to meet new people, sleep better, feel more relaxed, have more fun and more energy, move with fewer aches and pains, and have better posture, balance and stronger muscles and bones.

 

PEPPI is based upon research and has been helping older adults since 2004.
