The social enterprise Siel Bleu is well aware that exercise is a weapon in the prevention of diseases among the elderly. Since 2014 this company has been using physical activity as a method of prevention, support and improvement of the quality of life of the elderly.

Its manager, Ivette Callorda, points to a problem whose main features can be seen in the everyday life on our streets: "There are more than 2 million people in this country aged over 80," and this figure will be three times that in 50 years. This enterprise also has a component that saves healthcare costs for the state: "The diseases related to our elderly cost Spain more than 40 billion euros per year, accounting for 70% of health spending."

Siel Blau carries out its activities using the method called adapted physical activity (APA). This is a tool to maintain the autonomy and improve the quality of life of elderly and most vulnerable people. They are customized sessions, with goals that are adapted to any age.
