Fitness for Seniors

Michigan’s Source Newspapers ran an article at the end of September explaining that the month had been designated Healthy Living Month by one area senior housing facility. Such a celebration is certainly a good idea for any senior housing or senior rehabilitation community, although it is of course a better idea to facilitate and encourage year-round healthy living.

But the story is particularly worth mentioning because of its reference to seniors who have taken advantage of the fitness aspects of their senior housing facilities in order to maintain a long-term regimen and keep themselves remarkably able-bodied at an advanced age.

Eighty-nine-year-old Leona Schneider says that she is able to do much more than most people her age, thanks in large part to three hours of weekly exercise with the help of her senior housing community. And the experience that she is having in Michigan is one that you might easily realize in Colorado.

To get a sense of how, you could arrange to look over the senior rehabilitation center at Gardens on Quail, which provides a range of resources including equipment for low-impact workouts, as well as expert staff who can help you to understand the best regimen for keeping yourself flexible, mobile, and strong for years longer than you might once have expected.
