About Our Approach
THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR YOUR TAGLINE.
Our approach and choices in exercises and exercise instruction are founded in the principles of clinically sound exercise research. Improved strength and endurance you can see!
How it works
Since 1997, Baxter Fitness has been providing its members with an exercise program that is medically sound, enjoyable, and has an inviting atmosphere. We believe that there is a major gap between the need for comprehensive, safe, effective exercise programs in the medical and senior communities and the resources currently available. At Baxter Fitness we meet with every new member, by appointment, for the first three sessions to fine-tune the program to their specific needs and/or limitations. The goal of the Fitness Orientation is to help members become familiar with all of the fitness areas and programs that we have to offer. We will help you orient yourself to the machines and teach you how to properly and safely use the equipment. We are always available to help you as you progress in your fitness program. Using movements that increase muscle strength and flexibility, the smart machines in our gym protect your joints and enhance balance and coordination. Our strength machines utilize air resistance, not big clanking weights, and our bidirectional aerobic equipment is the best and safest in the world.
Daily Express Circuit
Developed by Andy Baxter, MES, PRCS and Founder of Beyond 50 Fitness; our medically sound exercise program was originally designed in 1997 to work with knee and hip surgery patients. With endorsements from physical therapists, orthopedists and cardiologists to name a few, Baxter Fitness has grown to become a trusted, comprehensive, and effective fitness-building program for people over 50.
This program is considered the most innovative and flexible aerobic/strength circuit in existence. Bi-directional capability allows for improved motor skills and neuromuscular adaptation. This leads to increased endurance, strength, range of motion and reaction times; which helps with fall prevention.
Our circuit is accessible and is appropriate for those with Multiple Sclerosis, Heart Disease, COPD, Parkinson's, and recovery from stroke.
