Our Story

From her past as a Canadian national athlete, the founder has spent considerable time in fitness centers. Now retired from competitive sport but still active, it was brought to her attention that more and more seniors want to train but find it difficult to find anything that applies to their needs. There are “Gold” versions of conventional workouts, but the strength of the Fit Active Method is its muscular endurance component, which aims to slow down or even reverse the negative effects of the aging body. The Fit Active Method is a training method designed for the specific needs and concerns of older adults. Training is provided by certified professionals specialized in physical activity for seniors.

Programs

The relationship between living well and our physical abilities are very strong. It can be difficult to incorporate exercise as aging impacts our overall quality of life. A lack of exercise accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle also affects our mood, self-confidence and long-term health. Some of the benefits, to name a few, of physical activity are prolonging autonomy, independence and slowing down the body’s aging process.

The Active Fit method is a program specifically designed for seniors. We offer a variety of effective workout plans and work with seniors to workouts. In addition to physical fitness, we incorporate an activity of daily living (ADL) component and neuroplasticity exercises because it is important to stay mobile and healthy, well into old age.
