Abstract: This experience report discusses a program entitled “Physical Activity and Health for the Elderly” developed at the Federal University of Lavras/MG to the aged people of the city. The main objective of this program is to provide diversified physical and recreational activities and targeted for prevention and health promotion of people aged over 60. The activities offered include hiking, gymnastics, weight lifting, stretching, adapted sports, dance, among others. Through this project, it was noted the importance of it for the involvement of older people in physical activities, thus bringing benefits from these activities to this population, providing an environment for socializing and pleasurable experiences, contributing furthermore for the quality of their lives. It is suggested that higher education institutions and government entities offering such programs should accommodate a greater number of seniors with these practices and their benefits.
