The facts of fitness that really add up for each of us are those that directly affect our well-being and how we look and feel. Fitness requires an active choice; Lori Michiel Fitness makes that choice fun and easy.
Benefits of regular exercise:
• Increase stamina, decrease fatigue
• Enhance feelings of well-being
• Jump-start metabolism
• Lower cholesterol and blood pressure
• Feel flexible and limber
• Improve balance and function
• Decrease anxiety and mood swings
• Improve sex life
Results of inactivity with age:
• Loss of muscle strength
• Increased risk of chronic disease
• Joint and muscle pain increased due to stiffness
• Increased risk of falls, sprains and other accidents/injury due to lack of use
• Previously enjoyed activities become limited, including social ones
• Dysfunctional relationships
The talk test is a simple check of whether an individual can talk easily during exercise. Someone performing moderate-intensity exercise should be able to talk, though not sing or carry on a full discussion, during activity. Individuals performing vigorous-intensity exercise should not be able to say more than a few words without pausing for a breath.

Lori and her team provide personal training for my elderly mother who has Alzheimer's and dementia, as part of her overall care. They customized a program addressing her needs, including balance and mobility. She really likes her two trainers and looks forward to her sessions. I highly recommend Lori Michiel Fitness!

Sam Strain – Trainer
Customer care is of the utmost concern to her. She is very knowledgeable about personal training and the workings of the functional human body from a bio-mechanical point of view. She is compassionate about all her clients as they all get her personal touch.
I would feel most comfortable recommending her to anyone that is in need of her services.

After my mom’s strokes, we knew we needed to help her become active and improve her balance. She didn’t have a good habit of any exercise and none of the local senior classes were appropriate for her.
I’m so glad we called Lori Michiel Fitness. Lori came to the house, met with my mom, listened to her needs, took a careful medical history and matched her with Daniel. Daniel is a wonderful trainer who comes to the house three times a week to help support mom’s recovery. Daniel really understands senior fitness. He gives the whole family peace of mind that we are doing what we can to prevent another fall and keep mom active. Lori checks in with us regularly to make sure the therapy continues to be appropriate for mom. We’re very grateful to her.
