Hey There, I'm Coach Doug and I Can't Wait To Help...

Hi, I'm Doug Schrift,  Physical Therapist, senior fitness coach, and creator of Eldergym Academy. I help seniors become strong and stable even if they have never exercised before. 

Not only am I a PT and senior fitness coach, I am a senior myself. I know what it is like to have good days and bad days, painful knees and shoulders, health issues and doctors appointments. 

I continue to work full time as a hospital physical therapist in the Phoenix area, and know first hand how to improve the fitness and health of seniors. I am sharing all my years of experience with seniors here with you in the Academy. Welcome aboard!

“This program is wonderful.”

"Thank you! I just completed day 9 Cardio Gym. This program is wonderful. I feel so blessed to have found Eldergym Academy. I’ve enjoyed each workout. Some days I add a Quick Wins in addition to an exercise routine that I have from a PT from years ago.

I am amazed at the many variations of exercises. So much better for me than what I was doing at the gym. And my shoulder issues are improving from following the quick wins programs for shoulders. Thank you again Coach Doug and Yoga Audrey for all that you do!!

Not Sure If Eldergym® Academy Is Right For You?

 Who the Academy is for..

  • If you are a senior who has not exercised in a while and are feeling weak and wobbly... the Academy is for you.
  • If your mom, dad, or grandparents need strengthening and balance training at home...the Academy makes a great gift!
  • If you have fallen and your doctor wants you to improve your balance and strength...the Academy is for you.
  • If you need motivation and accountability to succeed with an exercise program...the Academy is for you.
  • If you have the fear of falling, are not confident when walking, seldom go out...the Academy is for you.
  • If you would like to share your successes, challenges, and concerns with your classmates in a safe and supportive group...the Academy is for you.

Who the Academy is not for..

  • Are you an active senior exercising with the younger fitness classes? YOU ARE JUST FINE and are an inspiration to all seniors!
  • Are you a frail senior and need assistance? You need individualized instruction from a qualified Physical Therapist.
  • Do you have an unstable medical condition? Check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program.
  • Can't make time to exercise several times per week? To make progress you will need to practice often.
  • Don't like computer based learning? The Academy is video based and only available online. 
  • Looking for a fall prevention program? Exercising will help your balance but please see your doctor to go over your medications and have a home safety evaluation.

It might seem strange, trying to talk you OUT of becoming a member - but truly if the Academy is not the right fit then neither of us benefit. I have a vested interest in your success (you won’t stick around long if we’re not helping, right?) - and that all starts by making sure the Academy is right for you before you join.

In Case you're wondering...

What is the Academy?

How do I join the Academy?

How much is it to join the Academy?

Why is there a Monthly fee for the Academy?

How do I pay for the Academy?

Will I need a computer?

Is the Academy only online?

What browser should I use?

My computer is small, can I watch the Academy video courses on my TV?

Do I receive anything in the mail when I join?

Is there an orientation after I join the Academy?

Can I pause my membership if I am sick?

What if I don't enjoy Eldergym® Academy?

I’m not 100% sure what the Academy is or if it's right for me, do you offer a trial so I can test it out?

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?

Do I have to email you if I want to pause or cancel?

I am a senior and just barely know how to use the internet. 

Why should I become a member today instead of waiting?

What is included with my monthly membership?

Will I receive news and announcements from the Academy?

Can I get a membership for my parents?

What equipment do I need?

Will I have to exercise everyday?

I've never exercised before. Is the Academy right for me?

I am already exercising. What can the Academy do for me?

Is all of the content available straight away or is it time-released (drip fed)?

Can I get one-on-one help with my exercise program?

Can I access the content released at Eldergym® Academy during my membership once I cancel?

If there's anything at all that you're not certain about, anything we haven't made clear; any concerns or questions then please do contact us at support and we'll help you out.

P.S.: I am very excited about Eldergym® Academy. It is truly a unique and powerful online senior fitness experience, designed to get you off the couch and active again.

I created the Academy with the inactive senior in mind. This is the stage of life most people find that their strength, flexibility, and balance is deteriorating. You may be feeling wobbly when standing, or turning around. You may find yourself holding on to furniture when walking to the kitchen.

I designed the Academy so that all you have to do is follow along with my Roadmap to start building your strength and balance. You can feel safe using the courses everyday, as long as you follow along with the schedule of classes.

It doesn’t get any easier. Many seniors tell me they want a simple way to exercise. This is it.  

So don’t wait any longer. You won’t find a better comprehensive senior exercise experience out there.

See you on the other side!

Warm Regards

Coach Doug
