The Concept of Strength Care Fitness
"Strength Care" is based upon the ability of exercise and regular activity
to help maintain an optimal quality of life. Strength training, also known as resistance training, is now promoted by every health and medical organization as a
vital aspect of one's daily care. Maintaining strength and balance improves our ability to remain active and
independent at any age. Exercise can also help manage chronic illnesses such as
diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease.
Traditional and functional-based training methods are incorporated as needed into fitness programs. Flexibility exercises, safety in training, and proper biomechanics are emphasized in every session. Movements from various disciplines (Pilates, yoga, tai chi) can also be adapted, according to a client's needs. Traditional training involves simpler movements that do not necessarily involve intensive balance or stabilization challenges. Functional-based training allows for greater freedom of movement, greater variety of exercises, and progressive balance and stabilization challenges.
