BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) September 02, 2020
EGYM, a global fitness technology leader providing fitness and health facilities with intelligent hardware and mobile application solutions, announced the next edition of their live expert series: The Science Of Aging on September 29th, 2020, 12:00 PM Mountain/ 2:00 PM Eastern Time (U.S. and Canada).
The number of Americans ages 65 and older in the U.S. will more than double in the next forty years. The science of aging, therefore, is an important topic to explore as we are starting to understand more and more about the benefits of exercise as people age.
“It’s time to debunk the myths that we hold about aging. With EGYM, we are ready to apply the science of aging to spare people the unnecessary losses in strength, endurance, cognition, and function,” said Mike Studer, the highly acclaimed and award winning physical therapist, author, and speaker with expertise in a variety of areas including neurology and geriatric physical therapy.
EGYM, in collaboration with Fitness Industry Technology Council, invites all professionals and stakeholders in the Senior Living and Active Aging sectors to an ongoing discussion on recent trends regarding the science of aging delivered by one of the world-class experts in the subject: Mike Studer.
Topics will include:
- What Exactly Is The Science Of Aging?
- What Are The Key Trends When It Comes To Aging?
- Why Is Neuroplasticity So Essential And What Is It?
- Why Exercise And How We Think About It Is So Important Today?
Panelists will include:
- Mike Studer (Keynote Speaker, Author, and Founder of Northwest Rehabilitation Associates)
- Frank Arant (Director of Active Aging, EGYM)
- Bryan O'Rourke (CEO FITC | Vedere Ventures)
Bryan O’Rourke, CEO of FIT-C and Vedere Ventures, who is a thought leader in technology and trends in the health and fitness industry had this to say, “By 2030 there will be more people over 60 in the U.S. than school-aged kids. Given the volumes of science that reflects the enormous benefits of exercise at any age, and particularly as people get older, this is a very timely subject. Being that Mike Studer is one of the leading thinkers on the science of aging, his insights will be a tremendous value to many.”
