Age in Place: Fitness 4 Function
Sharea Brehm is the picture of health with enough energy to power a village. Her new company, Fitness 4 Function, more than utilizes her dedication to helping older adults live longer, healthier lives as they maintain strength, mobility, and balance.
One of the issues that is very important to most seniors is the ability to keep their most precious possession: Independence. This is where Fitness 4 Function comes in.
Fitness 4 Function is a uniquely personalized service that assures older adults receive the necessary exercise and physical activity essential for functional living skills such as rising from a chair, climbing or descending stairs, answering the door, shopping, housework, or recreational activities that they always enjoyed when they were younger.
“I wanted to provide a service to seniors that was not being readily offered. Our personalized exercise training and physical activity can be provided one to three times per week or more if desired. We tailor these supervised sessions to the individual person’s functional fitness level and medical condition. The exercises are progressive and are adapted as they improve in function or as their medical condition and function changes,” she said.
“I have always felt that seniors don’t always get enough attention and that their level of function is sometimes overlooked. I wanted to provide this service in the comfort of their own surroundings. In their own environment, they can “age in place.” Seniors tell us they feel very comfortable with the one-on-one training that Fitness 4 Function professionals provide and enjoy the couples and group settings as well. It’s fun and enjoyable as they learn to strengthen limiting functions that, if left unattended, can result in deterioration of their once-active bodies,” Sharea adds.
Exercise is not just for the young. Keeping up your range of motion in joints at any age is so important. Exercise helps build and rebuild muscle strength, balance, and mobility. It also helps reduce the risk for falls that result in bone fractures. Exercise works to enhance a person’s immune system, reducing the risk for infection. It enhances circulation and metabolism. All these are important elements that Fitness 4 Function is well qualified to deliver through their services of health, fitness, and function that meet personal wellness goals in a time period that works for each individual.
There are multiple levels of pricing based on individual, couples, and small groups as well as corporate pricing for larger groups. All exercise training is performed at a safe level under the careful guidance of a fitness professional. All the physical activity and exercises follow your healthcare provider’s recommendations. Another important element of care is the progress reports to family members or the healthcare provider upon request, and they can monitor blood pressure and pulse on a regular basis. Seniors also benefit if they are seeking to regain mobility after an extended illness or long-term bed rest.
Fitness 4 Function Professionals hold nationally-recognized certifications and have extensive experience in senior and geriatric exercise and are certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED.
