I wish more people would see fitness for seniors as a norm not an acception.
Fairwinds has over 200 hundred residents and at least 1/2 workout. I get inspired by those who are 90+ and are still going. More and more the generations I am working with is realizing it is not to late to get fit.
It is still a battle. Not only with my residents, but others outside. I have met trainers who were surprised when they had 65 year olds training or taking classes. In my world 65 is young and vital.
I have two saying: 1st; the PRIMEFIT gym, where the only limits are what you make! 2nd; Age is a number not an excuse.
I have learned to see the person, not their age. We need to stop putting limits on people because of their age. Physical aliments give us enough restrictions in over 1/2 the residents I work with. I refuse to give them any more!
