As a society, we tend to view aging people as “old people” that should sit at home and basically become invisible. What a mistake this is because they still have a lot to contribute. All they need is someone to recognize that they still exist. Fritz McDonald, president and founder of the Great Age Movement, has done just that. Listen to Fritz talk about why he’s made it his mission to redefine “old age” through his organization.
Fritz is so passionate about getting people in their golden years to get inspired by participating in exercise programs, so with the support of sponsors, the organization launched a Great Age Fitness Park. Seniors now have a playground to safely workout with the help of instructors, and with the partnership of The Health Museum, they can join indoor fun exercise programs as well.
The Great Age Movement is committed to providing free diverse activities, from movement programs to educational classes focused on mental and spiritual wellness, entertainment, healthy cooking, DIY projects, and so much more.
Fritz also mentions how the organization worked with The Health Museum to create free online videos providing exercises and topics to benefit senior citizens for anyone to do in their homes. Fritz wants to ensure everyone can participate, even when they can’t visit the park or the museum.
