Senior Fitness Retreat offers weight loss and physical fitness.

Senior Fitness Retreat in Henderson, NV

Senior Fitness Retreat in Henderson, NV

Seniors at weight loss camp want to maintain their physical abilities.

Weight loss goals are unique due to age-defining priorities for seniors.

Enjoyment of family, participation in favorite pastimes, and maintaining independence are high priorities. The highest of priorities seems to remain the “low profile” activities of being able to physically get up from floor level.

No doubt, grandchildren can motivate Senior Fitness levels.

“If only I could get on the floor to play with my grandchildren and then be able to get back up again.”

”I don’t want to risk falling again, and I can’t get up by myself if I do.”

This pretty much tells the story of why the fastest-growing population of new exercisers is flocking to take part in a Senior Fitness Retreat. Working toward retirement leaves too little time to focus on maintaining activity levels crucial in avoiding sedentary problems.

Sedentary lifestyles are becoming prevalent since the advent of technology. Where does that leave you when you can’t lift and carry a grandchild?

Senior Fitness Retreat- Highest Investment Value

For many, the dream of retirement has become a fleeting one. The economic downturn has caused many seniors to lose savings and the freedom of an active lifestyle. Fitness is lacking.

Return to Favorite Pastimes Like Golf

Golf – once a favorite pastime, still stands as an icon of retirement pleasure. Many seniors strive to be able to play golf again. However, balance, strength, and range of motion must be restored to make this possible. Driving ranges and putting greens offer more economical activity without paying the high cost of playing 18 holes. Nine holes are becoming even more popular. A Senior Fitness Retreat will focus on the fitness required to not only perform life’s daily living skills but also build up a reserve necessary to play.

The Low Profile Goal from A Horizontal to Vertical Position

Perhaps you are able to take this low-profile ability for granted. Perhaps you are not there yet. I do hope you never have to face crawling that long road back. To those who have come to the realization that getting down might mean finding help to get back up again there is definitely hope. Follow these Senior Fitness Retreat guidelines for progress.

Senior Fitness Retreat Training Guidelines

Agility and Stability Training – Do traveling drills working both right and left with front and sidestepping patterns.

Squat Work- Sitting and standing from the chair level, l progress from assisted to hands-free movement.

Be sure to include split-stance foot placements to mimic functional work, as well as, lifting and carrying motions.

Abdominal Strength –Practice seated side reaches, seated lean backs, and lying on your back with short-range reaching movements.

Work at different angles to build core body strength. Progress your movements from the floor with various levels of assistance from the furniture.  Then try going hands-free. Utilize inflated exercise balls for seated to recline progression. Make sure to use Duraball Pro, the most reliable exercise ball for training.

Balance Symmetry – Train both sides of the body through non-dominant movement patterns. In other words, work your “goofy” side, too.

Confidence and Strength of Will – Practice mental disciplines for positive self-talk in overcoming fears.

Learn to recognize self-defeating fears and cancel them before they cause falls. Balance starts between the ears, so don’t sabotage your equilibrium.

The most general all-purpose exercise at a Senior Fitness Retreat will be wood chops. Wood chops build dynamic balance, strength, range of motion, and core control.

Consider attending a Senior Fitness Retreat where you can train for the active lifestyle you dream of.

At my senior fitness retreat personal training workouts provide each participant with individual exercise modifications as needed. Weight training and the popular TRX suspension training system promote core conditioning and balance. Individual, personalized exercise can be done even when participating in a group with these systems in place.

Every workout session is loaded with fun and energizing activities.  Training is specifically designed to help you successfully achieve your weight loss goals while toning and balancing your problem areas.

For his 80th birthday, Sid crossed off the bucket list his first Grand Canyon hike from top to bottom (round trip)!

He repeated it annually then progressed to the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon three years in a row. To date, Sid Graber is on record as the oldest participant in the event. Watch him in the video at mile 13 as he continues to climb a flight of stairs to the sky bridge over the Las Vegas Strip, completing his journey.

Sid Graber, a former WWII Navy officer credited the Marines for his favorite inspirational quote.

Geriatric Fat Camp” 30-Day Transformation Gets Man Fit for 80

At senior weight loss camp, the quality of Walter’s life was greatly enhanced by increasing his ability for life’s daily tasks with a comfortable reserve left over for recreation.

Senior Weight Loss Camp“ videos enticed Walter’s son to contact Debra in Las Vegas after viewing her web page.

Debra explained that her approach for senior weight loss camp clients was the same as for any other special population; assess then progress. Over a decade of spousal caregiving was followed by 3 years of sedentary bereavement. He had lost interest in all that once kept him active. They needed a customized program suitable for Walter to start at a very low level of physical capability.

After seeing what Walter was comfortable doing, the progress began. Small steps toward improvement were made in each of the workout sessions taking place throughout the day. Over the period of one month, Walter had exceeded his own expectations.

At the Las Vegas live-in senior weight loss camp he was given a customized program.

He started at a very low level of physical capability. Progress occurred daily with personal bests in every session. Walter was empowered and his spirits renewed quickly.

At Debra’s live-in senior weight loss camp her approach for sedentary clients is the same as for any other special population; assess then progress. Outings include frequent grocery shopping visits for fresh foods with optimal nutrition. Meal frequency, proper water intake, adequate sleep, and appropriate exercise bring about rapid results. Brain fitness improves dramatically with a wellness regimen. This improves the senior quality of life and prolongs independent living. Results come quickly when you do all the right things all at the same time!

The Adult Tricycle is used in the Senior Weight Loss Camp conditioning program.

A major aspect of Walter’s cardio workouts was done on an industrial tricycle as seen in the video highlight story below. This gave him the stability he needed while enhancing leg and lung power.  Also, his weight-bearing cardio workouts utilized Nordic trekking poles.  Again, stability was optimized while redistributing efforts onto his upper body to help offload the legs. This worked well for Walter and in a short while he regained the confidence to walk with greater stamina and stability. He then began to plan travel and sightseeing trips for the near future!

This 79-year-old man regained his former abilities. The quality of Walter’s life was greatly enhanced by increasing his ability for life’s daily tasks with a nice reserve left over for recreation.

Update: Since leaving Debra’s Senior Weight Loss Camp, Walter rides his mountain bike 40 minutes daily and claims he will never give it up again.

Senior Learns How to Get Up From Floor at 72 Years Old

Fear of falling became a paralyzing fear limiting activities and life.

Getting down and back up again from floor level seems out of the question.

At the senior fitness retreat, losing 100 pounds seems like an easier goal. Core activation and spinal mobilization on a stability ball rapidly rekindle these capabilities. Barbell training revitalizes dormant muscle strength and sharpens balance. Reclining on a stability ball into a hip bridge and back up to sitting empowers the full “get up.” Prone yoga postures cobra and child’s pose to downward dog become the new sequence to get up. Chair pose into mountain pose ends the movements with confidence and control. Ultimately, the “get up” is at the top of the list of important movements of daily living.
