Your Fitness Team

Our fitness team is here for you. Life is three-dimensional – we reach, bend, lean, turn, twist, stoop, and change directions constantly throughout the day, so why do most gyms still use machines for mature adults?  How are you going to improve balance, move better, or perform athletic activities better from sitting on a machine?
Over the last ten to fifteen years, there has been a shift to more functional type exercises and workout programs and less emphasis on isolating particular muscle groups. The gyms or studios that are offering more functional or whole body movement classes tend to focus on a younger demographic while the mature demographic still gets a circuit on “safe” machines that does little good once you leave the gym, a fitness team can help make the crucial difference.

I started doing more functional type training about fourteen years ago when I noticed more and more of my clients were seeing results not just in the gym, but more importantly in the activities they were doing outside the gym.  Most people don’t really love working out, but they put in the work because they love the results.  They show up, have fun, and work hard so they can ski longer, play more golf, have less pain, have more energy, or just move better outside the gym.

The last couple of years, I started getting more and more calls and referrals from people fifty and older looking for a trainer that understood their needs and goals.  They wanted someone that would develop training programs that weren’t geared for a person in their twenties or put them on machines.  They wanted something different and deserved something better so I started Fit Over 50 Fitness and put together a top fitness team.

At Fit Over 50 Fitness, I use exercises and fitness routines that will safely and effectively challenge you,  whether you are in your 40’s looking to get in shape for your 50th, maintain your activities into your 60’s and beyond, improve your health, or just feel better, I have the programs to get you in shape to do the things you love!
