With our help, you'll move with more strength and confidence, improve your balance, and expand your ability to do things for yourself.
- Perhaps you're just beginning to notice changes in your abilities or those of the person you're caring for.
- Maybe getting in and out of taxis and up and down stairs is more complicated than it used to be.
- Maybe walking down the street with people bustling past is starting to make you anxious about falling, or perhaps you've recently had a fall and are afraid it will happen again.
- Or maybe you already have the help of a caregiver or in-home aide and are finding it harder and harder to do things for yourself. Perhaps you're worried about how much longer you'll be able to live independently in your own home.
Even though it may seem like exercise would be too hard for you at this point, we know how to find physical activities that are right for you, that you'll enjoy, and that will help improve your balance, mobility, strength, and mental clarity. We don't want to brag, but we think you'll find yourself looking forward to our visits.
The majority of our clients are age 60-90 and face challenges just like yours. We are able to help because not only are we experienced fitness professionals, we also have special training in movement education. That gives us the tools to help you recover lost abilities and really function better.
Like most of our older clients, you might have health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and others. With your permission, we'll talk with your doctor and make sure that we develop a plan that is safe and effective for you.
Jae began working twice weekly with my mother nearly four years ago, when my mother turned 85. Jae is attuned to her changing needs, not only over the years, but also within each session itself. She focuses on issues specific to the elderly, including balance, proprioception, stamina, and lung function. And she makes it fun and stimulating.
