On the Move

On the Move© (OTM) is a group-based exercise program for older adults designed to target the timing and coordination of walking. The program challenges the brain to match the timing and sequences of your movements with your posture to improve the smoothness and efficiency of walking.

The unique stepping and walking patterns in OTM are goal-oriented and progressive. This timing and coordination approach to improve walking is based on principles of the development of motors skills.  As a motor-control based program to improve walking, there is a heavy emphasis placed on high repetition of accurate exercise activities. Music, props such as cones and balls, and partner-based activities keep our classes interesting.

The 12-week OTM program meets twice a week for about 50 to 60 minutes per session. It’s delivered by a trained exercise leader.
