Studio Programming for the Elderly 'Fit' client

Amy working in her studio in Santa Barbara

Introduction

 

Working with the elderly client is one of Amy Haven's Pilates pleasures and is close to her heart - particularly as her parents gave birth to her in their late 30s and so maintaining their exercise levels is close toher heart.

She feels that we all want to feel successful in our endeavours and exercise, particularly Pilates on Apparatus is a great place to meet the exercise needs of the elderly - to set achievable challenges, to focus on the needs of this special population taking into account likely comorbidities like osteoporosis.

Amy points out that  "Balance is key.....mobility is key.....strength is key: the functional strength we need for our later in life daily living tasks etc."
