This program's primary purpose is designed for anyone who is looking to adopt a fitness and wellness plan to live optimally for a lifetime and counteract aging. We understand that with increasing age comes many changes including natural loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia), bone density issues, loss of flexibility and muscle imbalances. If you experience any of these issues, this program is here to help you!
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Vigor Vitality program is designed to increase hormone levels naturally through weight lifting, give the exerciser a feeling of increased strength, provide more energy daily, and increase quality of life. There is an abundance of research available regarding the benefits of exercise to the aging body. We follow these guidelines to better assist you!
"Three years ago, I began weight training with a Vigor Active fitness professional with the goal of improving my bone density and getting my weight down. I was diagnosed with Osteopenia and was steadily gaining weight each year. After one year of training, I had lost 17lbs, 14% body fat, and 4” around my waist. One year later, by lifting heavier weight and using plyometrics with my expert trainer’s guidance, I received my first normal bone density test. As I continue to train at Vigor, my bone density has increased, my bloodwork stats have improved and are holding, and I am in the best physical shape of my life! Thank you, Vigor Active!"

The Vigor Active Movement Specialists follow science based programs published by the top accredited personal training commissions (NSCA, ACE, ACSM) for safety and effectiveness. This program will address sarcopenia, bone density, lack of cardiovascular fitness, muscle imbalance correction and flexibility issues. In order to accomplish this, we recommend muscle toning plus endurance and strength protocols, programmed cyclically. Nutritional guidelines for the aging body are very different from youth and middle ages, therefore guidance on making the necessary diet changes will be advised.
Vigor Correct is intended for those who have pain or irritation which may be caused by poor posture, muscle weakness / flexibility imbalances, or faulty biomechanics.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Vigor Active Biomechanics Specialists will thoroughly assess the body joint-by-joint to identify your biomechanical imperfections, and will correct these issues through specialized training. The exerciser will feel less tension and greater ability to move pain free. It is recommended that the Vigor Body or Vigor Vitality program be adopted after correction as a maintenance program.
"Living with an extremely painful post shoulder replacement, and the other arm getting close to needing a replacement, I did not know where to turn. A close friend on the Vigor Active training team suggested I engage in a program with him to correct my muscle balance and upper body posture to help the pain. I am a firm believer now a year later with no pain at all and all my strength back!! I am so thankful. Please believe me–it is possible." – Jimmy (57)
The Vigor Active Biomechanics Specialists follow science based programs published by the top accredited personal training commissions (NSCA, ACE, ACSM, NASM) for safety and effectiveness. The program will highlight techniques to strengthen the weak musculature and stretch the tight musculature using the JANDA method. These muscle areas usually oppose one another so as one side of your joint is strengthened, the other will be stretched for optimal balance.m
