Osteoporosis Fitness Training

 

This exercise program has been developed for those who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia.  It is a safe and effective exercise program that is based on medical research. Studies have shown that resistance and weight bearing exercises help to build bone density.  It is crucial to learn how to exercise properly because the wrong exercises or improper form can lead to fractures and injury.  This class will show you the exercises that should be performed, the exercises that should be modified, and the exercises are that should be avoided.

"During Carol’s programs, patients are given excellent workouts and easy to follow exercises which include strength, posture and balance exercises using the correct form. Carol also shows the exercises that should be avoided for patients who suffer from bone loss. During Carol's classes, she discusses activities of daily living and lifestyle changes which can also help patients cope with the impact of osteoporosis. Her sessions improve quality of life and overall health."​

Carol varies the exercises every class and is always positive and enthusiastic. She is even able to individualize the exercises in a group setting. She knows everybody's problem spots.
