Active Adult Classes
FUERTE for life
As one ages, it is paramount to take great care of the body for overall wellness. The Fuerte for Life series of classes is designed to incorporate strength training, balance, core strengthening, and flexibility into one class specifically geared towards those 55 and older who are fairly mobile. Contrary to what most people think, loss of strength and poor balance are actually linked to inactivity, rather than age. Just some of the many longer term benefits of exercise include: improve bone density, decrease risk of dementia and chronic disease, and improves sleep and one's mood.

I’ve been going to the Fuerte for Life class at Fuerte Fitness on Airport Blvd. for about 6 months and just want to say how much I love it. The class is kept small, no more than 8 people. That allows for us to have as much attention from Carrie, the trainer, as we need. Fuerte Fitness is not a gym. It is a space for classes. There are free weights, exercise balls, TRXs, medicine balls, bands, etc. There are so many different exercises that no two days are alike. For a lot of the exercises, Carrie shows us the exercise and then shows us one or two other ways to do it if we want to make it more difficult. It is up to each class participant to decide how much of a work out they want. Also, if someone has a physical issue, Carrie will either come up with a different exercise for them or show them a different way to do it. - Peggy M.
