Today’s seniors are living longer, more active lives and we are here to make sure they live those to the fullest! There are plenty of gyms and fitness centers, but only TASH Wellness employs degreed Fitness Professionals and Functional Aging Specialists. It is our goal to increase the amount of healthy activity you engage in, decrease the odds of disease and prevent injury.
Today’s seniors are living longer, more active lives and we are here to make sure they live those to the fullest! TASH Wellness provides education and fitness programs designed with seniors in mind to help them live comfortably. Our Functional Aging Specialists professionals have created a curriculum with exercises that help with issues seniors face daily.
All our sessions are designed using the six foundations of Physical Function (neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, balance, mobility, cognitive/emotional)
The TASH Wellness senior program is designed for adults 55+ who want to stay active, live with independence, and keep healthy for the long haul. Based on Functional Aging Institute guidelines, our program is designed to increase mental alertness, cognitive function, balance, core strength, power and agility! Even if you have had previous injuries or surgeries, our Functional Aging Specialists can work with you.
Unlike many other programs (such as Silver Sneakers), we screen all senior members! Using standardized testing, we determine areas of concern, physical limitations and current fitness level. Progressions and regressions are made during the workouts to a different fitness level depending upon the quality of the movement that you are performing.
No one likes falling, and it’s especially scary for seniors. TASH Wellness can minimize the risk of falling through a training program that focuses on flexibility, stability, balance, strength and coordination. We will also educate our seniors through a fall prevention program.
Working on balance is something that should be practiced and worked on throughout our entire lives. Balance training is a key component to our Senior Fitness Program and we incorporate balance training in every session to help you with everyday activities.
An active brain is the key to preventing cognitive decline. The brain is a muscle that needs to be worked on every day. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it! Brain function will also improve with exercise.
As Brain Health Trainers, TASH adds cognitive training to all its sessions.
