Fitness at Any Age

WRITTEN BY: NOEL DANIEL

IT’S EASY TO FEEL OVERWHELMED—ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE SUFFERING. Whether you’re overweight, stressed out, enduring body aches, or feeling the effects of aging, Kelly Frederick with StudioFit 50+ wants to help.

At Studio50+, clients can build relationships to help each other stay healthy and get stronger as they gracefully age—rediscovering strength, energy, and vitality one day at a time. Frederick gives free 30-minute assessments to develop programs perfect for members, regardless of their medical complications. Currently, Frederick has members who suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, past injuries, arthritis, and cardiac or breathing problems.

With Frederick, do not hesitate to discuss your health, your current and past activities and sports, your limitations, and your goals! Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and if you don’t use it, you will lose it.

“If you are struggling with any of these issues, or even concerned about staying mentally sharp,” said Frederick, “a Certified Personal Trainer would be your best investment.”

Classes are limited to 12 people. Kelly pays close attention to small details of a member’s body mechanics while modifying exercises throughout the group training. This attentiveness is how Frederick can promise safe, fun, pain-free, and rewarding results!

“This is a place to reinvent the youthful you that you once had,” said Frederick. “No more groans when you stand up, or stoop over to pick something up. Gain energy that will help you get rid of that heavy, stiff, achy old body.”

You can also enjoy a small group setting, where everybody knows your name and encourages each other. If you are a senior athlete, already involved in sports and activities, this is the place to get ongoing training and support so you can safely enjoy your golden years.

“I enjoyed working one-on-one with Kelly in my home,” said member Pat W. “When she opened her studio and I started attending group exercise classes, I had more opportunities to work with varied equipment and work with more muscles. It’s fun to exercise with others in a non-competitive environment where Kelly modifies the exercise for each individual.”

Frederick has 17 years of experience in Personal Training, and that includes 15 years of hospital setting Pulmonary Rehabilitation. She also has ISSA Certified Personal Training, Gray Institute CAFS, FLS Certificates: Intro to Alzheimer’s Disease, and Exercise Prescription for Alzheimer’s Prevention and Intervention.

Her specialty is pain-free pre- and post-rehab, helping people increase their strength when they are at their weakest.

“As a Boomer, my goal in joining was to be in a smaller, friendly, supportive exercise group that provided individualized attention to balance, coordination, conditioning, endurance, and the strengthening of muscles, bones, and nervous system,” said Janice Hammond, another member. “As an experienced trainer, Kelly’s program offers this and also is mindful of my own health needs while I work out.”

Exercise, activity, and group fun not only benefit your body, keeping you healthier, more vigorous, more limber, strong, and flexible; it also has been proven to help prevent and intervene in Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Do you have a loved one that’s struggling with Dementia? Studies have shown that regular exercise can slow the progression of this horrible illness. Programs are being designed for all three stages of Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Exercise boosts brain power, helps to increase blood circulation, improves coordination, and helps prevent conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes—all conditions increase the risk of developing dementia.

Arthur Kramer, PhD, a researcher from the Univ. Of Illinois, used MRIs to show that exercise actually makes your hippocampus, which helps to form memories, bigger. The BrainBody Bootcamp™ class is about prevention and bolstering mental fitness with specific exercising. This keeps the exercises fun and meaningful, while also teaching you how to improve your coordination and memory.

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count—it’s the life in your years.
