DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
You tried to start an exercise program but there are too many to choose from and you don't know which program to follow.
You or a loved one has had a fall and you're concerned that it might happen again if they don't work on their balance and strength.
You started a program and it went well, for a while. Then you lost motivation and ended up back where you started.
You or a loved one is aging and more sedentary, and they need motivation to get up, get moving, and get healthy.
NO MATTER WHAT THE CASE IS, HEART & SOUL SENIOR FITNESS HAS A PROGRAM THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU.
Studies show that regular participation in exercise programs are scientifically proven to help with key elements:
Range of Motion
Reduce your fall risk, boost your mood, improve your cardiovascular health, manage medical conditions, and improve your memory.
I love the classes. Since October 2019 I have been going and it's helped me get my core stronger. My balance is better. I don't lose it when stepping down the curb. I have more confidence.

"I am excited to be a part of client’s life journey in 'aging in place'.
It wasn't until I began my career as an occupational therapist working with high-functioning seniors and seniors who had dementia and were chairfast or bedfast that it became clear the need for more senior programs was well overdue. "
