Fitness for Seniors by Seniors…


In our contemporary culture, fitness has come to mean looking good and feeling good. However, for seniors “fitness” requires a different understanding. For us being fit is mainly about being healthy so we can enjoy life to its fullest.

Our history and social conditioning have fostered a unique group mind-set, one that sets us apart. We have absorbed the knowledge and shared the experiences of every generation that we have passed through since our births. We have acquired a shared wisdom that only we can appreciate. Furthermore, we are proud for having done what it has taken to get to be this age and grateful for the extra life we get to live.

Because only we truly know ourselves, it is time that we seniors take the lead in guiding our fitness activities. We know best what we can and can’t do, when to move ahead or to hold steady. We know what we like and don’t like. We know what empowers us to do our best. And we know how to have good clean fun and lots of laughter. Embracing the concept of fitness for seniors by seniors is empowering.

The mission of Great Senior Fitness is to inspire seniors to step up to a stronger, healthier body and a sharper mind, regardless of the challenge or the circumstance. EVERYONE can be more fit in one way or another.
