GET TO KNOW

THE FOUNDER OF STRONGERU SENIOR FITNESS

For nearly a decade, StrongerU Senior Fitness was just an idea. Emily initially wanted to be a dentist, but a volunteer opportunity during university opened her eyes to working with older adults. It wasn't long before she quickly realized that it was her calling to serve this incredible demographic. This became the beginning of her career in community chronic disease management working with individuals performing cardiac rehab, recovering from stroke, battling and recovering from cancer, Parkinson's Disease, and more. She then discovered a career in senior living where she worked as a Life Enrichment Assistant, Manager, and a Regional Manager supporting a team of 49 senior-serving professionals. It was in these two previous roles where Emily realized the widespread need for StrongerU Senior Fitness.

We often associate aging with chronic disease, falls, frailty, and dementia, yet, research shows that it doesn't need to be. Through the StrongerU Senior Fitness Instructor Course and sharing her knowledge through educational presentations, Emily is debunking common misconceptions related to aging and exercise and showing that many of the negative consequences associated with aging are actually due to inactivity. 

StrongerU Senior Fitness was developed to benefit more than just the physical. The unique and dynamic programming uses a holistic approach to strengthen wellness' physical, intellectual, social, emotional, vocational, and spiritual dimensions.
