Early one morning in Corning, Iowa, nine older adults made their way to the wellness center for an hour of LIFE — Living (well through) Intergenerational Fitness and Exercise. Younger trainers introduce older adults to exergaming, video games that integrate game play with physical activity, in this Extension and Outreach program.

“We bring the research of the university to the people in a fun, interactive atmosphere, with physical activity and socialization. And it’s a great opportunity for rural Iowa to participate,” said extension specialist Barb Fuller. Watch the video.
