Yes, you can age better!

Our Functional Aging Specialists offer key insights for older adults

No one can stop the aging process. What we can do is affect how we age. For many adults ages 55 and over, staying active, healthy and fit in their later years is paramount. The choices we make about food and lifestyle go a long way toward determining our quality of life. As you age, it’s also important to adjust your fitness routine appropriately to make sure it provides you the best benefit with the lowest chance of injury.

These WAC personal trainers recently earned their Functional Aging Specialist certification, equipping each of them to provide expert advice to middle-aged and older adults. By developing and sticking with an effective exercise program built specifically on your personal needs, these trainers can quite literally improve your quality of life. Their unique insights into functional training strategies can help you establish better habits and life quality—whether you are preparing to retire, actively retired already, or just feeling the years creeping up.
