Active Aging (8 New)
The World Health Organization defines Healthy Aging as “the development and maintenance of optimal mental, social and physical well-being and function in older adults. This is most likely to be achieved when communities are safe, promote health and well-being, and use health services and community programs to prevent or minimize disease.”
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXERCISE FOR OLDER ADULTS?
Regular physical activity is beneficial to everybody’s long-term mental and physical health. Exercise can help you manage existing diseases or disabilities as well as ward off future difficulties.
It’s never too late to start exercising. Even if you start tomorrow, you will reap the benefits of a longer, fuller, and happier life. Exercise will make you look better, your brain will be quicker, and you will have energy to spare. So, why are you waiting?
The potential for Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and some cancers can be reduced by an active lifestyle.
Exercise can improve blood pressure and bone density results, and is also beneficial to immune and digestive functions.
As you age, your metabolism slows, you lose muscle mass, and your body at rest burns fewer calories. So exercise is advantageous to seniors in reaching and maintaining an optimum weight.
As we age, most of us have an innate fear of falling. We frequently hear of slow-healing broken hips, legs, arms, etc. You can do your best to prevent this happening to you by exercising. With flexible limbs, improved posture, strength, and flexibility come balance and co-ordination.
Who doesn’t feel better after a long walk, run or workout?
It’s a proven stress reliever. Less stress leads to less anxiety and more happy!
More endorphins! Exercise tones, strengthens and reshapes your body and we know that naturally results in a huge boost of self-confidence.
Regular exercise helps alleviate anxiety and stress which might interfere with a good night’s sleep.
Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life.
You need quality sleep, and getting enough of it at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
We can all agree that Sudoku and crossword puzzles can help keep our brains active,
BUT exercise increases heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to the brain.
Exercise is also involved in hormone-releasing which helps in the growth of brain cells.
According to the Altzheimers Research and Prevention Foundation,
regular physical exercise can reduce your risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease by up to a stunning 50%.

Riva Rotter - Active Aging Ambassador
Four years ago travel vaccinations all but destroyed my immune system and caused my internal organs to begin shutting down. I suffered a total loss of energy and strength. I undertook a variety of different treatment regimes and diets but still neither my energy nor my strength returned. I refused to give in to my body.
The elixir that I chose: EXERCISE.
I am still battling the devastating effects of the vaccinations. My bone density ranges from the mid to low 40’s. However the more that I exercise, the better that I feel. I have more strength, flexibility, energy and vitality now than when I was a teen. I am 64. People who have known me for decades comment that I keep looking younger and younger, or that I have not changed. People tell me that I have beautiful skin and that I radiate.After being invisible for years I am now receiving compliments f rom both men and women. The secret: renewed confidence and self esteem. I am looking forward to the next thirty years and a new life that I shall shape.
Tara is amazing! Knowledgeable, experienced, caring, understanding and patient. She is a motivator and an energizer. She is relentless. She will not give up on you, and most importantly she will not permit you to give up on yourself!
Tara is an investment in your health, happiness, self esteem and quality of life. She is a wise investment in your future.
Phoebe Gresser - "Grit" Ambassador
Working with Tara has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for my physical and mental health. I moved from Oregon to the Buffalo/Crystal Beach area during the summer of 2017 and ended up breaking my foot shortly after that move. It turned out to be a terrible break that took almost 9 months to heal. A few weeks after I broke my foot my mom suggested I start working out with Tara to stay active when I wasn’t able to walk. Tara modified work out routines to accommodate for my broken foot and bad back. After a couple months of sessions with Tara I not only gained muscle but lost weight and a couple inches off of my waist, legs and arms. If you had told me that physical transformation was possible with a broken foot I wouldn’t have believed you. But it is and I couldn’t be happier! In the end I needed to go home for surgery (because of the type of break that I had) and Tara gave me workouts that I could do at home. I kept up with the work outs up until the night before my surgery. I can’t overstate the positive impact that working with Tara had on my physical/mental health during such a difficult time.
It’s now summer of 2018 and my doctor told me that I can start running again. Tara and I did sprints on the track the other day and it felt so good. She’s helping me to build up the muscles that I lost when I wasn’t able to walk - It’s amazing to be able to see/feel progress every day. I cannot recommend Tara more enthusiastically. She listens, modifies and helps you achieve your goals no matter where you are when you start. I’m so grateful for this experience and so excited to see how much I can do moving forward.
