While the baby boomer generation is very physically active because they have been around the concepts of fitness for most of their lives, their parents generally are not very active. Making a senior start getting active after many years of little to no activity can be a major issue. SportZal, a corrective fitness center in Belmont, offers tips on the ways for adult children to motivate their senior parents to exercise.

First, address their concerns. It is very important to ask parents their concerns about exercising in order for it to be addressed. Next, consult a doctor to determine whether the parent is physically able to exercise and to determine which exercises would be best. Next, an adult child should find expert trainers with experience working with seniors. They will be able to design a program that addresses a specific need as well as to find a way to motivate parents by making exercise safe and fun.

“All personal training classes at SportZal require that potential clients go through a full body assessment to determine a perfect exercise plan. If an exercise plan was designed by their doctor's office, we will take it as a model to utilize in our training. We will stay in touch with the doctor, if needed, to ensure the success of our program. That's what makes us different from all other gyms and programs offered to the public right now,” says Tatiana Fedorova, co-founder of SportZal.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, join the parents in the exercise. Finding a program in which the adult children and their parents can work out together will help motivate the senior and they will likely enjoy spending the additional time with their child. SportZal offers buddy training program that is designed for a workout of an adult child or caregiver with a senior.

“Buddy Training is designed to motivate both a senior parent and an adult child to exercise, while building a stronger bond that improves overall outlook on life and reduces stress,” adds Ms. Fedorova. “Each participant will gain a level of exercise that is appropriate for achieving the goals set before them.”

SporZal is offering a Christmas special for the Buddy Training. Usually selling a package of 10 sessions for $1000, they will take $200 off and offer the 10 sessions for $800. Call for more details.
