Osteoporosis Specific Exercise Program

Bonefit is a program that was designed by health professionals in cooperation with the Osteoporosis Society to “reduce fractures, morbidity, mortality and costs from osteoporosis through an integrated and comprehensive approach aimed at health promotion and disease management.”1 The program has three self directed modules and a workshop component. Specialists in rehabilitation medicine must complete a certification course to be instructors. The Bonefit website lists where instructors can be found anywhere in Canada. There are several in southern Ontario in a range of settings, from private clinics to the YMCA.
