Our company offers six great strength training exercise programs for all ages and fitness levels to help strengthen bones and muscles. We offer these classes at city recreation centers, senior centers, country clubs, retirement communities, HOA's with clubhouses, PT clinics, yoga studios and any place where group exercise programs are offered. Choose from the following courses:
Geri-Fit® is an evidence based older adults strength training exercise program that uses a set of dumbbell weights and a chair. During this 45-minute class, you'll improve functional capacity, balance, flexibility and strength. People that take this class range in age from 60+ and up to 99-years-old but it mostly benefits those that are in their 70's-80's and especially those using walkers or canes. There's no aerobics, choreography, or dancing to learn and there's no floorwork! Most of the exercises are performed seated in chairs or done standing. Participants start out using a set of 2-pound dumbbells and, as their strength increases, they can use heavier dumbbells in order to challenge themselves even more.
Body Sculpting™ is a one-hour all weights strength training exercise program. The class requires a set of 3 or 5-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat and a stretch band. There is no choreography or dance moves to learn. The instructor will provide plenty of one-on-one instruction in the group setting so it will be like working out with your own personal fitness trainer. Body Sculpting™ is suggested for those that are 18 and over and up to the age of 65 provided the participant is in reasonably good shape and can perform full repetition squats and lunges. A chair may be used for balance by older participants that sign up for this class.
Golf-Fit® Strength and Stretching Class
Just Arms and Legs was developed for people that don't have a lot of time to exercise but want to look great in their clothes! This 30-minute all weights strength training class focuses on just arms and legs. It is suggested for those that are 18 and over (no seniors please unless you are able to do full repetition squats and lunges.) This is a challenging program that requires a set of 3 to 5-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat and stretch band. We work from one exercise to the next with very little resting time between sets, so you will also get a cardio workout, too.
Geri-Flex™ is our newest 30-minute exercise program for active older adults. We've combined the best stretches from ballet, pilates, tai chi, yoga and included functional non-medical physical therapy stretches to further complement the course format. Students are required to get on the floor, so they'll need to bring an exercise mat and stretch band. We'll work on improving joint mobility, balance, and muscular strength... the three key ingredients we need to work on as we get older.
Geri-Fit® Private Lessons are held at select locations throughout southern California as well as in-home visits. Personal Fitness Training allows you the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Certified Senior Strength Training Specialist. Whatever your goal is, we can help you get stronger, improve your mobility, increase your range of motion, and improve your balance and functional capacity so that you can live more independently. All sessions are 30-minutes long and all equipment is provided.
