Project Strong and the Fit for Life program is strength and conditioning program for older adults. As we get older, an important part of staying healthy is staying active and keeping the body strong. One of the biggest components of living independently is lower body strength and balance. The Fit for Life program is a functional strength and conditioning program that works to make things like picking up groceries and getting up from gardening easier. It allows us to continue to enjoy all our recreational pursuits like skiing, snowshoeing, cycling, paddling and hiking. Participants engage in a program that carries over into every aspect of their life.
Free Introductory Session
All interested participants are encouraged to book and complete a FREE introductory private session, arranged by appointment.
Fundamentals Training Program
After the free introductory session, if you decide you want to continue to work with me you must complete the Fundamentals Training Program before joining the group class program.
The Fundamentals Program can be completed in one of two ways:
Option 1: -Private or Semi-Private
Three private training or semi-private training sessions (no more than 2 people). During these sessions, you will work with me individually to learn the philosophy, methodology and core movements needed to be successful in the group classes. This is our time to get to know you and address any health and mobility issues, along with any other concerns.
I can also work with any health-care provider to ensure all activity is safe and reasonable. Doctors are often very happy to hear that their patients want to be more active, which helps them improve quality of life and positively affect health markers including blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight. If your doctor has made recommendations about your activities, please let me know. I always defer to your health care provider and work closely with doctors, physiotherapists, and athletic trainers to ensure you’re getting all the attention you need.
Appointments are scheduled on an individual basis.
Cost: $200 + taxes = $226.00 (3 private or semi private sessions)
Option 2: Small Group Sessions
Small group sessions – no more than 4 participants total. Here you will work in a small group training setting to learn the philosophy, methodology and core movements needed to be successful in the group classes. This is our time to get to know you and address any health and mobility issues along with any other concerns.
