The New Year's Resolution Solution:


Together, we can address SIX of the top ten resolutions made by seniors (over the age of 60):

  1. Develop a positive mindset
  2. Find ways to challenge your brain
  3. Commit to at least 20 minutes of moderate activity per day
  4. If you are fortunate to have them, play with your grandkids
  5. Develop a hobby or learn something new
  6. Increase strength and prevent bone loss

As the proud founder of Chez Fit (an active aging movement), I’ve had the pleasure of helping to transform lives from “tired of feeling tired”, “my body hurts all the time”, and “I can’t do that because I’m old” -- to more suitable adjectives like “vim, vigor and vitality”.

Through the years, my programs have been adjusted for changing bodies, injuries and surgeries. However, an exceeding number of revisions has been due to bodies becoming stronger, more flexible and more agile. Better balance and posture are noticeable. Attitudes have become more positive, cardio vascular capacities have increased and overall health has improved. We are not trying to stop or turn back the clock – we are welcoming each day and preparing for new adventures.  

The key component for all my sessions is the music. When you consider the top hits of our generation, there are thousands to choose from which is why my playlist changes weekly. We may be doing some of the same exercises, but the musical rhythms are what stimulate the “rewards centers” of our brains. Locked away in these centers is the chemical called Dopamine which promotes happiness and well-being (# 1 above) as well as helping to improve our movements and thinking. I offer 3 one-hour classes weekly (#3 above) designed with mind-body combined movements for cognitive stimulation (#2 above). The Tuesday and Thursday classes include strength training (item #6 above) as well as choreographed aerobic sequences (#5 above). As a result, you will have the energy, flexibility and mobility to enjoy active time with grandchildren (#4 above), family and friends.

During the pandemic, our active aging movement developed into a friends and family network connected by our zest for life and through Zoom. I want to thank all of you that have joined me in this journey and I encourage others to begin 2022 with us to move & groove toward a healthier, more active life together.
