Topic: How to Transform Fitness Programs – And Ourselves – As We Age


“I look at my students as my works of art.  They keep the love of dance alive in me, and I am able to impart it on them.  I do it because I love it, for the love of it.” “There are typically two choices you have as an older adult fitness consumer.  You can either go to a senior center, and they have some updated programming but often you are not exercising in a designated space, you are exercising in the same space you eat lunch in.  And then you have the fitness culture of youth, places like Equinox that have top level fitness equipment.  Older people with means will go to the Equinox but  instead of the programming serving them, they have to fit themselves into the programs.  They suffer and do not enjoy these classes.“ – Marcy Simon
