Senior Fitness Retreat in Las Vegas
Whether you want to call it a Senior Fitness Retreat or Senior Weight Loss Camp, a senior fitness camp offers appropriate levels of activity with reasonable progressions. Accountability to the self-promises you have made will finally be realized. If you want to exercise regularly you need to be able to make a fitness commitment.
Get Rid Of Preconceived Notions and Negative Attitude Toward Making A Fitness Commitment
Senior Fitness and Exercise Reluctance
Most seniors presume that training needs to be done in a gym. They imagine drudgery for an hour. They get ready to spend their exercise in a room boxed in by four walls. Also, the anticipation that people are watching them can be a huge deterrent. Disregard how you could be perceived by others. Consider that your actions could be the very inspiration needed for an onlooker to do the same. Learn to allow yourself to like the workout experience. Regard it as your time for yourself to enjoy and feel good.
Be Creative With Your Activities
At my senior fitness retreat, even the grandmothers love swinging a sledgehammer to whack a big tire, running through a long jump rope turned by others and hopping over the agility ladder. Any activity that takes you out of the redundant pattern of machine training makes your workout fun, especially if it gets you outside in the fresh air and sunshine.
No rule says you can’t do something fun and that you enjoy.
A good workout experience can take you through fitness exploration to discover enjoyable activities. Dancing can make an excellent workout for weight loss and get healthy. So can bike riding Both activities can add a social element to your life, as well. Consider getting outdoors for plenty of sunshine and fresh air. Make it an adventure to remember. Invite others but don’t rely on them to get you going. Be committed. Be an action taker.

Senior Fitness Retreat offers weight loss and physical fitness.
Senior Fitness Retreat in Henderson, NV
Senior fitness retreat guests want to maintain physical ability.
Senior Fitness Retreat weight loss goals are unique due to age-defining priorities.
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.
Senior Fitness Retreat- 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.
Senior Fitness Retreat – The Low Profile Goal from Horizontal to Vertical Position
Perhaps you are able to take this low-profile ability for granted. Perhaps you are not there yet and 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 – Traveling drills working both right and left in front and sidestepping patterns.
Squat Work- Sitting and standing from chair level progressing 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 – Seated side reaches, seated lean backs, and lying on back with short-range reaching movements at different angles will build core body strength. Progress your movements from the floor with various levels of assistance from furniture before going hands-free. Utilize inflated balls for seated to recline progression.
Balance Symmetry – Train both sides of the body through non-dominant movement patterns.
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 and sabotage normal equilibrium.
The most general all-purpose exercise at a Senior Fitness Retreat will be wood chops because dynamic balance, strength, range of motion, and core control are gained.
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 systems 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 specifically designed to help you successfully achieve your weight loss goals while toning and balancing your problem areas.
