The general problems of bad posture, chronic rigidity and pain so common in adults cause many of the negative feelings associated with aging. It doesn't have to be that way. The Flow Ball program addresses these problems in a gentle but effective, “feel good” approach that transforms these negative feelings into positive experiences. Age Smart Fitness offers a 5 day Flow Ball Instructor Certification. This training will give you the knowledge, the tools and practical skills you need to keep your aging clients feeling young with confidence and success.

Flow Ball is a fluid training program which moves between stretching and strengthening in a strategic manner to eliminate pain, improve posture and increase mobility.

A few years back I was introduced to this this amazing person! Sometimes you meet someone and you hit it off. I've flown her into Toronto a number of times to come and deliver, what I believe to be the best Active Aging Training Education out there right now! Why? One reason, it comes from her tens of thousands of hrs. actually teaching the Active Aging market!

Today. Well, I could not be more proud of her. She just completed this great book, get yourself a copy. It's called: All I Really Need is My Health. And if that wasn't enough, she appeared on CTV. Watch the video.

Lisa McLellan, thank you for all you do! This one’s for you!
