Exercise Enthusiast Creates Web Site to Promote Active Living for Seniors

Share Article

Dona Rooney was inspired to produce a Web site to promote an active and healthy lifestyle for senior citizens after she had been retired for several years. HealthyAndFitSeniors.com encourages exercise among seniors as it offers a variety of exercise equipment such as handheld weights and running shoes - it even distributes heavy-duty strength training equipment such as treadmills.

There are more and more seniors out there every day; it seems like a good audience. I'd like to help them regain some of their strength.

Dona Rooney had been retired from the workforce for several years when her son and his family lost their business. In an effort to help them with their newly established financial struggle, she followed her instincts to reenter the working world by formulating a business she could manage from home. Her passion for sports and exercise combined with her recent eye-witness accounts of senior citizens having trouble with general mobility inspired her to create http://www.HealthyAndFitSeniors.com.

"I've just noticed how some older people have so much trouble getting around, they can hardly walk," Rooney said. "There are more and more seniors out there every day; it seems like a good audience. I'd like to help them regain some of their strength."

Launched in May of 2009, HealthyAndFitSeniors.com was created with the intent to encourage senior citizens to integrate exercise and healthy-living choices into their weekly - if not daily - routine. This online business offers a variety of exercise merchandise such as handheld weights, yoga mats, stationary bicycles and running shoes and treadmills.

Rooney believes that getting started on any project or lifestyle change is all about taking small steps. Her intent is to offer different types of exercise that people can ease into. Dieting isn't the answer to staying healthy and fit; she hopes to add healthy reading material to her Web site soon. Books on general fitness and healthy eating habits are high on her list of products to supply.

Discover some of Rooney's holistic ideas for her Web site by reading her interactive blog, http://www.HealthyAndFitSeniorsBlog.com. Here she plans to discuss general nutrition and fitness. Eventually she would like to offer advice generated from the professionals, an idea created by her very own podiatrist - he looks forward to contributing to the Web site in the near future.
