Functional Aging

Add Life to Your Years

 

How do you envision the next several decades of your life?

Are you able to pick your successor at work while retiring comfortably?
Traveling around the world with your family?
Playing outside with your kids and grand-kids?

 

At Fitness Generation, our personal training staff believes in and practices the idea of functional aging. We want you to age well, building and maintaining a high level of physical function throughout your life.  This is accomplished by creating healthy habits including consuming a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercising at a moderate intensity multiple times per week, maintaining healthy relationships, and getting adequate sleep.  The graph below was created by the World Health Organization and shows the two ways functional capacity can change over time, as an individual ages.

We want to ensure that all of our clients can move well throughout their entire lives, never even coming close to the disability threshold. We don’t want to see anyone experience a decades long decline in function. Instead, we want you to hike the Grand Canyon, play basketball against your grand-kids (and win!), take a safari in Africa with your family, study a new language, lift more weight than your nieces and nephews, and continue to perform speaking engagements across the country. These are all activities our clients do or have completed.

This is why co-owners Ken Yazge and Megan McCoy have become certified through the Functional Aging Institute, as Functional Aging Specialists. We’ve even worked closely with Dr. Dan Ritchie and Dr. Cody Sipe, founders of the Functional Aging Institute to co-author a fitness book, Movement for a Better Life.  If you’d like to receive a copy of our book, complete the form below.
