IF YOU CAN'T MEASURE, YOU CAN'T CHANGE!
DOES YOUR EQUIPMENT HAVE THE SOFTWARE TO RECORD ACTIVITY AND MEASURE OUTCOMES?
A Message from Best Practice Partner, HUR Health and Fitness Equipment
According to the recent ACSM Survey of the Top Fitness Trends for 2013, the #2 trend was Strength Training and the #6 trend was Fitness Programs for Older Adults.
centers are in a great position to provide superioractive
agingprograms for 50+ year olds and dominate this market. Your staff
already has the skill set needed to implement these programs. The older adults
fitness market is a fast growing and highly profitable segment of fitness.
DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT AND SOLUTIONS TO IMPLEMENT
EFFECTIVE, FUN, SOCIAL AND MEASURABLE STRENGTH, POWER AND BALANCE PROGRAMS FOR
YOUR OLDER MEMBERS?
GIVE THEM STRENGTH THEY DESERVE, WHILE
INCREASING YOUR REVENUE!
Fact #1: 29% of 60+ and 46% of 80+ year olds cannot lift 10
lbs (CDC Research 2006) and therefore, may not be able to use traditional
weight stack exercise machines with high starting resistance and increments
(15-20 lbs). High speed power exercise programs cannot be implemented with
weight stack machines.
Older adults are not sick - they are just weak!
Fact #2: Falling is
#1 injury death reason for 65+ year olds - every 3rd American over 65 falls
The HUR Health and Fitness Equipment computerized Smart Card
exercise machines and HUR iBalance Testing Systems are designed to implement
active aging programs - functionality, strengthening, fall prevention,
continence, and physical therapy - and to measure the outcomes.
The HUR machines are low impact with from close
to 0 resistance to stepless increases, seewww.hurusa.com
