What Others Are Saying:

Perry -  Academy Member

Exercise has been something I do daily. I love it! I joined the Academy to have more structure in working out. I am enjoying learning more about the Academy and I enjoy the variety of the workouts. Getting stronger and working on balance and posture is important to me. I would recommend the Academy to seniors.

Mary -  Academy Member

I am delighted to have discovered your website, and to now be enrolled in your Academy. Your clips are easy to follow at an easy pace, very encouraging, and absolutely inspiring to get going and keep going. Your warm and friendly instruction, dialogue and smiles really make a helpful difference. Thank you!

Patricia - Academy Member

After retiring from the workforce I went from being very active to being a lot less active - the pounds added on and I was losing my strength. Eldergym Academy has made such a positive difference in my life and I know it will do the same for any senior who wants to kick the stuffing out of their ‘golden years’ ahead.

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. You will have four ways to learn in the academy. In depth courses, expert workshops, monthly live Q&A, and weekly coaching. 

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
