Encouraging our aging adult population to work towards optimal health through physical fitness, this lively film features a group of seniors called the "U of Agers" who meet twice a week at the University of Alberta to learn and rehearse a series of gymnastics activities. The U of Agers are just "ordinary" people trying to do "extraordinary" things and confirm that if they can do gymnastics, then others in Canada have the potential to excel at whatever inspires them.
