LifeLong Strong 50+ Fitness
The LifeLong Strong program is enrolling up to 10 participants with classes starting Monday January 18th. The goal is to safely and effectively increase strength, energy levels and health for people over 50. The class provides professional instruction by a physical therapist and the social support of a group of peers. This will be an inclusive, positive, welcoming environment where all people will be supported to reach their individual goals even if they have never exercised before.
There will be a free individual fitness/movement assessment prior to starting to determine fitness level and any injuries or conditions participants need to work around.
Classes will be an hour long and will always include a warm-up, a work-out that combines strength, cardio and balance, and a cool down/ stretching at the end.
The location is CrossFit Weaverville X-Caliber. We will be using weights, rowing machines, bikes, boxes, bars and other equipment, depending on each participant’s ability. All movements will be scaled/modified to meet your fitness level. The class will be instructed by Angel Trail, physical therapist, CrossFit trainer and owner of Big Ivy PT. Angel has a passion for helping people get fit, increase energy levels, and decrease pain. She has a special interest in helping people 50 and up get and stay fit.
Classes will be Monday Wednesday Friday at 1:15-2:15pm. We may add more classes/times depending on interest and customers’ preferred schedules. If you are interested but would prefer a different time, please let us know by clicking the “Request Enrollment or More Info” button and sending a message through the contact form.
COVID concerns: Masks required. This makes people get short of breath more quickly so intensity levels will be adjusted accordingly. You will also be able to take mask breaks as needed. There is plenty of space to observe physical distancing. All equipment will be sanitized before and after class.
