When I looked online at… In-Home Senior Fitness, I found that many sites were not in-home training; they were selling senior fitness programs offered in their gyms. When I did see one, it showed a company that did everything, plus seniors. They did group exercises, massage therapy, weight loss, weight lifting, dieting, dancing, meal planning, meditation, aerobics, and Yoga. They even hosted birthday parties! I clicked on their… In-home senior tab. It showed a young lady trainer, outside in the park, watching a middle-aged guy doing pushups in the grass. Another picture showed an in-shape man running the stairs. That’s great, but not that many seniors in their late 60’s or 70+ are running up and down the stairs, not unless their house is on fire. And the problem with lying down in the grass is not how many pushups you can do, it’s how are you going to get back up?
We work with healthy seniors and serious fitness folks too, but we work with all levels of seniors. We teach health and exercise classes in many north Dallas Senior Care and Assisted Living facilities.
Some clients we work with have had strokes. Some are blind, deaf, paralyzed, or have heart disease. Some have arthritis and osteoporosis… and some are very strong and healthy. The only people we don’t work with, we can’t work with, are patients who are no longer cognizant of themselves or their surroundings.
