All about Bold
Your Bold workout program is tailored just for you based on your needs and fitness levels, but friends can help you stay accountable as you build a new routine.
Your Bold trainers will demonstrate each exercise, and provide tips and instructions to help you get it just right. Doing a new move in front of a mirror can be a helpful way to check out your form.
Your membership expires exactly one (month/year) after your initial payment. Your membership will automatically renew on that date using the same payment method, so no need to worry about remitting payment!
Our at-home digital fitness program provides instant video access to expert trainers and personalized workout plans to help you improve your strength, flexibility, and balance.
Once you sign up, we’ll ask you a few questions to build a workout plan tailored to your fitness level. You’ll receive a personalized program on our website. You can take these whenever and wherever is most convenient for you. Also included in an extensive library of on-demand classes and live classes Monday-Friday!
All you’ll need is your computer, smartphone, or tablet, plus a sturdy chair, water bottle, and open space. Your Bold trainers will take care of the rest!
Our 4 Bold Assessments are:
- Mobility: See how fast you can get up and move
- Balance: Test your balance in 4 poses
- Strength (Lower Body): Test your lower body strength by seeing how many times you can go from sitting to standing in 30 seconds
- Strength (Upper Body): Test your upper body strength by seeing how many bi-cep curls you can do
These tests were designed for every body, so don’t sweat the results! They’ll help us create your personalized workout program and let you track your progress.
We take your privacy very seriously! Our engineering team protects your personal fitness information with best-in-class security and privacy practices. We do not sell your data.
You can take Bold classes whenever and wherever is most convenient for you. Here’s all you’ll need:
Your computer, smartphone, or tablet, with internet access.
An open area. You’ll need a few feet of empty space to move in.
A sturdy chair. We recommend using a chair with no wheels and no arms — a basic dining chair works well.
A water bottle — hydration is key!
Finishing a program is no small feat — so congratulations if you have! Don’t worry, the fun doesn’t stop there. After you complete a program, you have a few options:
Continue taking classes from the Explore page. Using the search functionality, you will be able to take classes in a one-off fashion based on your preferences. Preferences include: length of class, type of class and instructor. This is the choose-your-own-adventure option!
Start a new program. Once you complete a program, we can recommend another personalized program for you. Each subsequent program will increase in difficulty, helping you both maintain and challenge your current fitness level.
Physical activity is not a discrete commitment, but something we at Bold hope you’ll incorporate into your life on an ongoing basis.

Bold is for older adults looking for safe and effective workouts designed just for them. If you’re 60+ and looking to restore your balance, strength or flexibility, Bold is for you. We offer programs customized for your age, strength and fitness abilities.
Our Bold trainers are experts in active aging and fall prevention, with diverse experience in personal training, yoga, Tai Chi, group fitness and exercise science. You can meet our trainers here.
Bold was founded to help older adults live vibrant lives full of the activities they love. Whether you’re keeping up with grandkids or hitting the road for that trip you’ve been dreaming of, Bold helps you get — and stay — stronger and more confident.
We’ve designed a unique fitness program rooted in the science of fall prevention, based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control’s STEADI initiative, the National Council on Aging, USC’s Fall Prevention Center of Excellence, and more. 1 in 4 older adults fall every year, resulting in 3 million annual trips to emergency departments for treatment of fall-related injuries — but studies show that regular exercise and balance training, like Tai Chi, can reduce your risk of falls by up to 43%.
At Bold, we’ve built a team of trainers who are experts in active aging. We’ve created workouts that bring the best of personal training, group fitness, yoga, and Tai Chi together in at-home workouts designed to help you improve strength, flexibility, and balance, so you can live Bold and age gracefully.

All about balance, strength, and healthy aging
As we get older, falls become more likely. According to the CDC, “more than one out of four people 65 and older falls each year, and over 3 million are treated in emergency departments annually for fall injuries.” (via CDC) We always recommend chatting with your doctor about your risk factors, but certain things can make you more likely to fall, including having fallen once before, being on certain medications that make you dizzy, and not exercising.
Falls are tough to talk about, but the good news is that fitness and balance training can help significantly reduce your risk of falling. If you’re looking to increase your balance, strength, and mobility because you’ve got falls on your mind, you’re in the right place.
Check out a Bold Assessment today to see how you’re doing, and talk with a doctor about your personal health history.
The World Health Organization recommends about 150 minutes of physical activity each week for most adults, and the AARP has found that exercising 3+ hours each week can lead to a 39% reduction in falls — however, we recommend chatting with your doctor for a personal recommendation based on your age, health, overall fitness levels, and more.
Bold programs offer a customized set of classes each week. These classes focus on strength, flexibility, and balance. You’ll also have unlimited access to the Bold video library, so you can take your favorite classes whenever you’d like. Activities like walking or biking are a great complement to your Bold classes!
If you’ve fallen and can’t get up, please call 911 immediately. After any fall, always talk with your doctor.
We’re so glad that you’re excited to #LiveBold! Here are some great ways to continue the conversation and learn more about fitness, healthy aging, and investing in your 100-year-self:
Fitness helps older adults stay strong, active, and healthy so they can continue living the life they want, at any age.
While any consistent exercise routine can be beneficial for overall health, Bold focuses on exercises that help you improve strength, flexibility, and balance. Investing in strength and flexibility helps ensure that you can keep doing the things you love for longer, while balance training is a key element of fall prevention. Millions of older adults fall each year, but studies show that balance training — like Tai Chi — can reduce your risk of falls by up to 43%.
