Alive and Well: Seniors are enjoying the “best years of their lives” in athletic country clubs for life

ARORA certified personal trainers are experts in balance, strength training, flexibility, nutrition, rehabilitation and modification workouts

CHANHASSEN, Minn., June 29, 2022 / PRNewswire / – 60 is the new 40 and Life Time (NYSE: LTH), the leading national healthy lifestyle brand, is helping seniors go back in time – or at least realize that age is just a number.

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

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

ARORA is a community within Life Time, designed for people who want to stay active, fit, healthy and social as they age. The key to this success are 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 participate fully in life’s great 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,” said Renee Main, senior 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 practice 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’ experience as a certified personal trainer.
  • Specialized: Specialization in corrective exercises and experience in applying these concepts with the healthy aging population.
  • Done: Completed and passed initial ARORA certification courses and maintained all required annual updates.

ARORA certified personal trainers have a real passion for supporting seniors, as demonstrated by their empathy, listening skills and their fun and friendly behavior.

“I train dozens of Life Time members between the ages of 55 and 80,” said Joseph Angelina, ARORA Certified Personal Trainer. “Seeing 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 for seniors to remain active to build strength for daily activities “.

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

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

New ARORA Lifetime Programs:

  • Nutrition laboratories: Organized by a personal trainer, the 1-hour workshops emphasize the nutritional principles that support healthy aging and identify practical steps to adopt a nutritional lifestyle.
  • Movement workshops: Organized by a personal trainer, the 1-hour workshops unveil the six pillars of healthy aging and explain how movement plays a vital role in all of them. Participants will practice seven primary movements that can be incorporated into daily exercise programs.
