Setting and Exceeding Fitness Goals with PrimeFit

At Russellville Park, we know that when it comes to aging well, fitness and nutrition take center stage. Physical activity and exercise only get more important with age as studies show that regular physical activity can help seniors maintain independence for longer. Regular physical activity for seniors can also prevent heart disease, improve mental health, decrease the risk of falls, improve cognitive function, and provide more opportunities for socialization.

We know this all too well, which is why giving our residents the opportunity to move more and eat better is a top priority. Our PrimeFit program is a nationally branded program and a leader in senior fitness and wellness, exclusive to Leisure Care communities. Comprised of both group training and personal training, PrimeFit sets seniors up for success and we see residents set and exceed goals regularly.

Two Russellville Park residents just saw amazing results by participating in our PrimeFit program. Resident Sally Skelding lost 35 pounds and is still in the program.

“I incorporate the recumbent bike, ballet bar, and therapy pool to give me variety. I have also been able to extend my physical therapy program to a personal program to continue my success in recovery from a recent surgery. There is no lack of opportunity here at Russellville Park. I have improved my balance, stability, and ambulation.” – Sally Skelding

Another resident, Barbara Robertson has lost 110 pounds, and the experience has been life-changing for her. Barbara attends a fitness class in the morning to build strength and improve flexibility and hits the gym in the afternoon for a workout on the NuStep machine and leg presses. Her consistent fitness routine combined with our nutritious and flexible menu items has resulted in a massive weight loss that has the potential to have had a huge impact on future health and wellness.

We would love for you to stop by Russellville Park independent living, assisted living, and memory care community and check out our gym or drop in for a group fitness class! Call us today to start your journey!
