Digital Fitness Entrepreneur of the Year 2021
Tina, from the West Midlands launched a ground breaking online service to help isolated older clients keep fit, healthy, happy and connected! My Senior Gym’ is an innovative online platform. It offers a range of on demand and live stream video workouts tailored specifically for the needs of the older body.
Tina Lloyd is a Falls prevention Expert and Dance Graduate. She has been teaching for many organisations that support the fitness of older people such as Age Concern and community organisations. She has won many awards for her work with older people and is very excited about the support that the service can offer to people who are unable to leave the house for health reasons or prefer to excersise at home.
“There are hundreds of online fitness services but as far as I am aware none that consider an older group of clients”
My Senior Gym is different because it addresses the health and fitness needs of an older body. It focuses on our increasing ageing population that many instructors ignore and can cause damage to the joints or risk of injury.
“We offer many inspiring physio based videos that help clients with limiting conditions such as arthritic shoulders and Parkinson’s conditions. We also accommodate very fit clients in their 40’s who exercise a few times each week.”
There is something for all abilities-with workouts in falls prevention, tai chi, pilates, yoga, functional fitness and even dance fit!
Tina says “ the physical and mental health benefits fo exercise are mind-blowing. There has even been research done that shows regular exercise can add 5 yrs to your life!”
Regular participation in our health-based sessions will:
- Reduce chance of stroke, diabetes
- Improve cardiovascular health
- Improve balance/co-ordination and your chance of having a fall
- Reverse some signs of ageing such as reduced bone density and muscle loss
- Release our most valuable hormone our ‘endorphins’ which helps us to feel fantastic and reduces anxiety/depression
“We have had an immense response from our clients, some of whom have felt very lonely and isolated during and after the lockdown and have said it has helped them to get though it as well as instilled a new love for exercise. Many online clients have made new friends through our service-which has the added benefit of helping them to connect and share their journeys with like-minded people.”
