prescribed for seniors
For some, it's about living longer and for others, it's about living better.
Through our weekly video programs and live streamed class, we provide guidance about short groupings of exercises you can do at home. Our functional exercises are those focused on a particular purpose - helping you enjoy everyday activities through being stronger, more balanced and more mobile.
For people aged 50+, research shows that exercising effectively increases your ability to be actively engaged in life - being more social, playing with grandchildren, and gardening, etc.
At AgeFIT Home, we aim to give each person the confidence and physical capability to live well.
Our videos contain challenging (yet simple and purposeful) exercises designed to improve your strength, balance, posture and mobility. In them, we talk about, and demonstrate, exercise modifications so you can adjust what you do to allow for age or health related factors, and to encourage you to safely challenge yourself as you get the benefits of regular participation.
Our growing library prescribes different combinations of exercises expertly designed. Each video is short to medium length. You can repeat each series of exercises 2-3 times in one session or mix and match the videos to suit yourself. Try our full library of videos by signing up for 14 days free access.

WHO WE ARE
For the past 7 years, we have been providing specific and very popular 'active aging' classes from our bricks and mortar exercise studio in Silverstream, Upper Hutt.
When Covid-19 happened, we wanted to explore ways that we could continue to provide the benefits of our classes to our members. For many, the classes provided an essential element of their lives, and to be without the regular exercise routines tailored to their stage of life, was a dramatic blow.
We started offering our video classes as an alternative. The feedback from our community has been very positive. We believe that there may be a number of other people in similar situations to our older members who will greatly benefit from having access to the videos.
We are a husband and wife team, Scott and Danielle Falconer. Scott is the certified functional aging specialist (Functional Aging Institute) with a degree from Massey University in Health & Sport Science. He is the face of the videos. Danielle comes from a corporate background. We have two young children and a dog, who try as they might, are yet to show their faces on screen.
'We really hope that through these videos people, like many of our physical gym members, rediscover the joy of feeling stronger, fitter and more mobile irrespective of their age and stage'.
