Viactive

Viactive is a physical activity program aimed at people age 50 and over. It allows trained facilitators to get groups of seniors moving in a safe, fun way in the communities where they live.

A number of tools are offered so that organizations and individuals working in senior communities can safely facilitate exercise programs tailored to seniors for free or at a very low cost. Tools given to facilitators during training sessions include illustrated workbooks with explanations of the exercises and accompanying music CDs.

Physical activity specialists (kinesiologists) working in CSSSs in the region work with the communities and train the facilitators. The CSSS’s support services are free.

Who is Viactive designed for?

Anyone age 50 and over interested in doing group activities whose physical condition allows them to do so.

Why do Viactive?

  • Incorporate and maintain regular physical activity
  • Experience the pleasure of moving in a group
  • Increase your overall physical abilities (muscular and cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, weight control)
  • Avoid isolation
  • Improve physical health and prevent chronic disease (cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol)
  • Improve psychological health (manage stress, maintain cognitive function)
