ARORA Certified Personal Trainers are experts in balance, strength training, flexibility, nutrition, rehabilitation, and workout modification

CHANHASEN, Minn., June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 60 is the new 40 and Life Time (NYSE: LTH), the nation’s leading healthy lifestyle brand, is helping seniors turn back the clock, or at least realize that age is just a number.

Jason Stella, an ARORA certified trainer for Life Time, coaches a member on proper form. Stella is also National Education Manager for Life Time and created the certification and content for all Life Time ARORA personal trainers.

“The list of benefits for moderate-intensity exercise, especially resistance training, is absolutely staggering.”

ARORA is a community within Life Time, designed for people who want to stay active, fit, healthy and social as they get older. The key to this success is certified personal trainers who have the background, knowledge and tools to support seniors. And now, Life Time’s new ARORA personal training certification program enables thousands of trainers to help seniors fully participate in life’s big adventures, instead of just watching from the sidelines. Research shows that exercise can prevent age-related decline in muscle function.

“ARORA certified personal trainers have extensive knowledge of common injuries, surgeries, medications and more, all to personalize the personal training experience,” he said Renee MainSenior Vice President of Healthy Aging for Life Time. “Our goal is for ARORA personal trainers to provide seniors with the confidence they need to safely enjoy the recreational sports they love and to improve their overall well-being. People who are more connected to a community of friends tend to be happier, healthier and live longer”.

ARORA Certified Personal Trainers are:

  • Expert: At least four years of experience as a certified personal trainer.

  • Specialized: Specialization in corrective exercises and experience applying these concepts with the healthy elderly population.

  • Accomplished: Completed and passed initial ARORA certification courses and maintained all required annual updates.

ARORA Certified Personal Trainers have a genuine passion for supporting seniors, as demonstrated by their empathy, listening skills, and fun, friendly demeanor.

“I train dozens of Life Time members who are 55 to 80 years old,” she said Joseph Angelina, an ARORA certified personal trainer. “To watch these adults gain stability and mobility and see their overall strength improve is extremely rewarding. The smiles on their faces as they complete an exercise or reach a goal are priceless. And it is extremely important that older adults stay active to build strength for their daily activities.”

It’s natural to lose muscle mass and strength as you age. But expert coaching and support can reverse these processes.

“The list of benefits to moderate-intensity exercise, especially resistance training, is absolutely staggering,” said Douglas Reinot, Life Time personal trainer, nutrition coach, and corrective exercise specialist. “Exercise improves bone density and connective tissue strength, increases range of motion and functional mobility, reduces aches and pains, and boosts mood, energy, and cognitive performance. A thoughtful, consistent exercise program it will add to a better quality of life, usually in multiple ways, for anyone.”
