Fitness is for Life


Regular exercise and training in older adults can improve flexibility, improve balance and coordination, decrease the risk of falls, enhance glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, improve reaction time and can help maintain healthy blood lipid values.

Most importantly, regular training can assist an older adult in maintaining independence 

Exercise can promote and prolong independence in older adults. Oftentimes, functional goals are more appropriate for these clients than significant weight loss. In fact, weight loss goals for older adults can sometimes be dangerous for their overall health.

Approximately 25% of weight loss attempted by older adults intentionally can result in a significant decrease in muscle mass. Weight loss in older females carries a 1.8 times greater risk of hip fracture.

Although high BMI can also be a health hazard, it is more appropriate to direct older clients to exercise regularly, set reasonable goals and consume a nutrient dense moderate diet to promote overall health

Before you start any exercise regime, it is important that you see your doctor and get their clearance to perform any physical activity.


Please make an appointment, and explain the challenge you’re about to embark on. I will also ask you to fill out my Fitness Forms - PARQ


Once you begin any  Fitness program, perform it at your own pace and within your personal level of fitness.


If you feel extremely fatigued or have an uncomfortable level of pain and soreness, take two to three days off from the workout. If the discomfort or pain persists, you should see a health care professional.
