Our trainers are experienced with corrective exercise programming and we will work to correct physiological imbalances and weaknesses in the body, while improving mobility, balance and strength.
We are an extension of your medical and wellness team. We often involve your therapists in the development of individualized plans of care to address your unique needs and goals. Once your therapist treat your injuries, we are excellent at strengthening your body so these injuries do not reoccur.
Our trainers complete a comprehensive evaluation of each patient to determine what is causing their symptoms. Common problems treated by our staff include:
Our Scope of work includes:
Flex those muscles
The older you get, the more important strength training becomes. One of the more crippling effects of aging for athletes is the gradual loss of musclemass, and the loss of strength that it entails. Athletes in sports that dont require tremendous strength are particularly susceptible, says Burke, as they tend to try and get by without resistance training.
Whenyoure young, very often you can get away with it, but the older you get, the more important it becomes to train for strength specifically, no matter which sports you do.
What we do
Fit Forever is a small group training class designed to facilitate and integrate with an active lifestyle the baby boomer generation has come to create and define.

Using intervals and circuits allows everyone to go at there own pace while doing exercises specific to your specific goals.

Better training can help you stay at your peak longer
Although all athletes will eventually lose the age versus performance race, with better training and recovery practices, in the coming years we likely will begin to see more athletes in their 40’s remaining competitive at the highest levels ofsport. By “training smarter, not harder,” athletes can reduce the chances of injuries, maximize gains from training and minimize the effects of aging.
Older athletes need longer to recover and adapt to a training stimulus, so workout planning needs to change with age.
High-intensity interval training, for instance, focuses on the quality of a workout, rather than the sheer volume of training, and can be used effectively by older athletes to improve aerobic capacity.
Cross-training, such as weightlifting and yoga, can help to maintain muscle mass and flexibility, and reduce overuse injuries in endurance athletes.
An emphasis on “active recovery” strategies (an easy run or swim on your rest days) and improved sleeping habits are important for athletes of all ages, but become essential for older athletes.
Performance decline isn’t just about physical changes, however. As we age, our intrinsic motivation to train diminishes. Even in athletes, the motivation to train may shift somewhat from setting personal records to remaining active and healthy. And that’s a great motivation for any athlete at any age.Type your paragraph here.
