FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
‘Ōlelo Series to Expose Myths about Senior Fitness
December 2, 2015
(Honolulu) The Future of Senior Fitness, a series of episodes designed to educate older adults about the importance of exercise, health, and fitness in their 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond will debut in January 2016. The series will be aired on ʻŌlelo Community Media channel 54 on Saturday March 5, at 5:30 P.M., and air every consecutive Saturday. New episodes will air each month thereafter. The series will expose many common myths about exercise, fitness and wellbeing in older adults.
The programs will help older adults and their families understand how the body ages, how to get the most out of healthy activities and exercising, how to avoid pain and injury, how to feel better and enjoy life more through healthy lifestyle choices, and how to get the tools to maintain their independence and enhance the quality of their lives.
“Common myths about the aging process as well as lack of education, lack of motivation, lack of access to senior specific fitness facilities and quality senior fitness professionals are all reasons why older adults may not get the exercise they need to stay healthy and active,’ said Myles Dias, the program’s host. Dias, one of Hawaii’s premier senior fitness practitioners, is founder and principal of Myles Dias Fitness Hawaii, LLC. “Those of us who have aging parents or other golden-aged people in our lives owe it to them to encourage and support them in maintaining active, independent and high quality lifestyles.”

Dr. Anthony J. Mauro, MD, Neurology, Psychiatry, Internal Medicine
Dr. Edward Chesne, MD, Cardiologist
Linda Adamson, Lifestyles Director, Kahala Nui
Dr. Jane Kadohiro, DrPH, APRN, CDE, FAADE
