Jerusalem’s only health and fitness center for golden agers and people with disabilities (*)  is located at Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem.

Fitted with professional equipment for aerobic and heart-lung capacity work, muscle strengthening and stretching exercises, the Center is staffed by volunteer professionals with medical back up. All equipment is adapted for use by those in wheelchairs. Each machine has a built-in control to limit the maximum exertion to a pre-set ability level. Physical exercise at any age is a positive factor in increasing longevity, promoting general well-being, improving balance and thus minimizing falls. These research findings even apply to people over age  75  and people with disabilities.

* except for war-related disabilities which are treated by the Ministry of Defense
