We have partnered up with Aim Orthopedics and CrossFit Cedar Grove to provide functional, affordable fitness programs, designed for those seeking a more active lifestyle, who may not otherwise take traditional fitness classes. Your personalized program will start with a free functional fitness test, performed by a physical therapist that will assess your current abilities and provide recommendations on the appropriate fitness program. Your program can include Chair Yoga, CrossFit for Seniors or a combination of both!
Your program will start with a Functional Fitness Test performed by a physical therapist. This test will gauge lower and upper body strength, endurance, flexibility, speed, agility and balance. This test is an essential element in designing an effective exercise program in older adults. The importance of assessing functional fitness in older adults is to identify risk, plan an appropriate program and set physical fitness goals. Periodic reassessment will be conducted to track progress and many any adjustments to fitness program. Should the test show that physical therapy may compliment your progress, a full PT evaluation can be scheduled. Sign up here for your free assessment.
