LOS ANGELES, May 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Age Bold, Inc. (Bold), a digital health company delivering science-based exercise programs for balance and fall prevention, joint pain management, and healthier aging, today announced it has partnered with The Terraces of Los Gatos, a HumanGood life plan community, to offer Bold's online platform to their nearly 250 residents.
"The residents of The Terraces of Los Gatos requested classes focused on balance to help reduce fall risk alongside a variety of fitness and balance training classes that they could do on their own schedule," said Evan Zhang, Fitness Coordinator at The Terraces of Los Gatos. "Bold is the perfect solution for our community – offering a large variety of classes and programs that are specifically created for older adults."
Bold's online platform provides personalized, science-based exercise programs to address fundamental health and wellbeing challenges faced by older adults, leveraging research and clinical exercise interventions to prevent falls, reduce arthritis related disability, and reverse frailty by increasing activity levels and improving strength, flexibility, and balance for members. Recent research shows users of Bold's scalable Fall Prevention Program demonstrate a 46% decrease in annualized falls per year and a 206% increase in weekly minutes of physical activity.
"At Bold we believe that maintaining strength and balance with exercise is central to aging independently," said Amanda Rees, CEO and Co-founder of Bold. "Our team is excited to partner with The Terraces of Los Gatos to help enhance their health and wellness offerings and bring our best-in-class platform to their residents. Together, we are continuing our work to close the gap between healthspan and lifespan."
