When was the last time you got to go out and play?
Play is an important part of our experience because it engages curiosity, laughter, connection and enjoyment. As adults, we lose the value of play somewhere in our thirties and most people never get it back.
This is one aspect of Defy Aging Solutions' programs that many of our members are surprised by. In fact, we have a number of self-reported exercise haters even though they love to come play with us!
One of the biggest misconceptions about exercise is that there is only one way to do it right. This could not be farther from the truth and contributes to that lack of creativity and potential for fun that is an important part of healthy movement. For not only is there more than one way to exercise, there are a variety of important components of exercise that make you successful at doing it.
For instance, exercise needs to move your whole body! Not just one part and not just in one way. When you look for ways to get moving, it needs to move all of you.
Speaking of movement, an effective exercise program also focuses on your mobility and has strategies for improving it. This may include stretching, myo-fascial release and other techniques that not only get you moving but also help improve the quality of your movement.
Wait a second, I got all technical and forgot where I started with this today! PLAY! What is most important about an effective exercise program is that it be fun, engaging and something you WANT to continue.
Incorporating games, memory work and new movement patterns into your sessions is how we keep things playful, fun and interesting for our members.
If it sounds too good to be true that you can exercise and enjoy it too, you’ll have to come see for yourself. Come play with us at Defy Aging Solutions and experience what it’s like to have fun while being healthy!
