3 Ways Boomers Are Redefining Fitness in Retirement

When it comes to health, fitness and aging, boomers are paving the way. Gone are the days of getting old, slowing down and relaxing. Instead, boomers are spending more time getting fit, being active and living healthier lifestyles. This not only helps them to live better, but it also helps them to live longer. 

“No one wants to spend their retirement years unhealthy and sick,” says Jeanie Tini, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, Florida. “Our residents truly believe that their retirement years are their years of freedom, their time to explore all there is to offer – to live the lifestyle they’ve dreamed of. This means prioritizing their health and wellness in new ways and keeping up with it each day.”

How Are Boomers Redefining Fitness?

At The Estates at Carpenters, our residents are grabbing their health by the reins through a variety of channels. No matter what their desires or needs, we are able to provide everything they need to live their lives to the fullest while helping them to pave the way for others who are redefining their fitness goals.

  • Their eyes are locked on fitness. At The Estates, residents are taking advantage of a wide array of offerings. From our Elevage Fitness programs, offering a variety of classes to help them stay in control of their health and well-being, to our state-of-the-art fitness center complete with a full-time personal trainer and Precor fitness equipment, residents can maintain their current health or work to achieve even better health. 

Residents can lift weights with the guidance of our personal trainer. They can swim in our indoor, heated pool and enjoy aquatics classes. They can get outdoors with our walking trails, bike club and more. Everything is waiting here for you to help you improve your strength, balance, mobility and more.

  • They are improving their health and keeping a close eye on the statistics. Our residents know the importance of living well, and instead of looking at health as a separate aspect from fitness, they understand how they blend. Our community regularly offers education on areas of health and wellness, monthly blood pressure checks, a wellness clinic, wellness fairs and more. Residents are in control through every step of their fitness and health journeys. 
  • Aging is being seen in a new light. Older adults want to beat every negative perception of aging. From their physical health to their mental and spiritual health, they want to age gracefully and healthfully. To help our residents embrace each aspect of their wellness journey, we offer a variety of programs and activities designed to help them enhance their brain health, clear the mind and live a truly well-balanced lifestyle.

Learn something new in a new class that’s being offered, try gentle yoga and enjoy the benefits of mindfulness, improve your balance in a specially designed class or simply try out one of our recreational opportunities or wellness programs. We make it easy to live healthy in all aspects of your life.
