My focus is on assisting "older adults" maintain mobility and independence for as long as possible. Having worked in many facets of our healthcare system throughout my career, it became apparent that losing one's independence, regardless of etiology, produced a corresponding decline in quality and satisfaction in life.
Given my prior healthcare experience, I focused on becoming a trainer specializing in the functional fitness needs of an "older adult" demographic of which I am a part. Like anyone, I've accumulated a host of injuries through the years, and continuing to live a "spirited" and active life necessitates new and innovative strategies to keep myself moving optimally.
To that end, I continue to embrace the role of exercise in "aging successfully," and strive to convey its value to my clients. I advocate multimodal training regimens, and encourage diversity in all physical and cognitive activites in an effort to attain and maintain an adaptive response that, potentially, leads to improved fitness and functionality.
Ultimately, my goal is to assist my clients in becoming autonomous, self-directed, regular exercisers, with an active lifestyle that, I believe, confers demonstrable/cost effective health benefits and, potentially, preserves a quality of life that is threatened by the increasing incidence of sedentary behavior/s and contraindicated lifestyle choices.
