I was really surprised, because my initial impression was that the routines were not challenging enough. Appearances are deceiving, but the results are not! I’m re-upping.
I feel the FASTSTART program is an excellent beginning to increasing my stamina and balance. My overall improvement surprised me!
I really enjoyed the workouts. Loved the variety and enjoyed being with other seniors. The workouts are fun and I find the staff extremely knowledgeable.
I have a heart condition, so to see my cardio performance improve was incredibly encouraging. I feel pumped and ready to do more! DAS has a staff that cares and is a place with no judgement and a positive attitude!
I was finding I was struggling with finding words at times - observing myself with the workout - this issue has resolved itself in the last 3 weeks here. It’s a fun way to get a more impactful workout- much better than going to the gym 3x a week with a trainer. DAS makes you want to work out.
I made noticeable progress in terms of strength and flexibility. I was most surprised by my lower body fat percentage. Exercises were manageable and productive.
Great experience!! Did not feel that I was pushed too far - just right. Well worth the time spent, looking forward to more classes on a permanent basis.
For the first time in my life, I found I enjoy exercising. If you hate exercise, try Defy Aging, you will find you love to exercise!
I feel like I am going backwards in time, I am doing things I haven’t done in years. SIGN UP!
Love it! Who knew exercise can be FUN?!
I feel physically healthier, more energy and stamina. Although the exercises look simple, everyone sweats! The staff is great, workouts are fun and the time flies by. You can work at your own pace - it’s up to you!
I like the program, and feel it beneficial - it makes you think.
Great, did not think I would see a difference in just 3 weeks. Join, it’s fun, fast, easy to get into
Good- reduced pain & gained control.
Loving it! Motivating and wanting to come back for more fun!
I now have hope that some aspects of aging can be slowed down! It’s great fun and a great workout.
Excellent. Great workouts- each one different. Works both the physical & mental.
Made me realize I need this exercise and should keep going. You need to give at least the FASTSTART program a try.
Great! The best thing I have done since I came to California. Now I realize how much in the hole I was before I started the program. Since I started I improved so much and feel the way I felt before I had the stroke. DO IT! You will feel 100% better and be healthier.
Fantastic. Incredible workout for only ½ hour. Extremely friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone. It mixes workouts with health benefits. Starts carefully- monitors heart throughout.
Loved the program - always doing something new - using muscles that I didn’t know I had - making me think while exercising instead of aimless repetitions. Try it! You’ll like it. Combines balance, memory & fun exercises.
I feel my strength, stamina and endurance have definitely improved. My mind is calmer and I have found myself able to focus more intensely. This program has given me more strength for the day and I feel refreshed now on a regular basis.
My back is feeling better than it has in a very long time - woo hoo! Not only do I feel a little better physically, my mood feels better just for being active and enjoying Annora and my workout pal(s). To top it off - its fun!
I feel stronger and I can do more things without feeling out of breathe so soon. I would recommend this program.
Invigorating – I’m enjoying the sessions. I like that the exercises are monitored with the heart rate statistics. Designed for the individual and targeted for anti-aging – a well-rounded and diverse program so you never get bored.
It’s a stimulating experience that works the mind and body – a great workout.
This is a very well organized program presented by knowledgeable trainers. The 30 minute sessions are fast, efficient and fun. Fastest 30 minutes of the day!
Fantastic guidance and variety. Wonderful sessions targeted to people over 40 designed especially to help prevent body and brain problems as we age.
Productive and fun! I especially love the games, throwing balls and bean bags. I hate exercise but these sessions are actually fun and make the experience very enjoyable.
Very good overall. Motivates me to get out and get involved in the program. My favorite part is getting to know Annora and DG and meeting other active people. It is an opportunity to work with a professional and committed staff in a clean and comfortable environment. Excellent choice of class times.
Awesome. Challenged me more than I expected. I like the changing exercises and ability to do a great workout in 30 minutes. I also like the brain workout being included. You have to try it – you’ll love it and what can be done in 30 minutes will surprise you!
A program built to get you off the couch – you start at your personal level of fitness. Very beneficial to me, I’m feeling better every day!
Great workout and I like that it is only 30 minutes. It feels fantastic to do before you start the day!
Challenging, good workout. This is an opportunity to regain strength and flexibility.
Invigorating! The moves seem simple, but the effect on the body is astonishing. I feel stronger; I sleep better, and I have more strength during the day. I don’t collapse at 5 o’clock anymore.
Keeps me coming back. My favorite part is how fun and challenging it is - It’s an innovative, one-of-a-kind exercise program that combines total body workout and cognitive stimulation. I believe that everyone over 40 should use this program.
Absolutely excellent. As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I did not know what to expect but it really measures up. I’m extremely pleased. My experience COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!!! I highly recommend this program without any hesitation. The FASTSTART PROGRAM should be experienced by anyone who desires to improve flexibility, agility, strength, endurance, balance and coordination. You should try this!
Excellent, varied and fun. You get the value of a developed mental exercise program in a fun environment.
Absolutely marvelous! I am very excited! This program has allowed me to gain energy, strength, and a clear mind at an exceedingly stressful time in my life! I want to continue working at Defy Aging for the rest of my life. Annora is a gift from God. She is patient, understanding, funny and gets the job done. My results say so! Attending sessions at Defy Aging increased my upper body strength by 50% - in just 3 weeks!
Great workout; lots of fun! It’s a total mind, heart, body workout. But not with boring exercises. It’s like recess for adults! As someone who was in good health & good shape (in my opinion!) prior, I am excited to see the amount of improvement after only 3 weeks. What surprised me most was how much body fat I lost and my increased flexibility. I am eager to come each time. I love being challenged in a variety of ways. After each session, I have felt energized, rather than worn out. In fact, I usually do a 1-3 mile run after the session because I feel so good! Thank you for creating this. I love that it’s for “older adults” - I would never be interested in a traditional setting with a mix of ages, because most of the people there are so much younger, I feel out of place and feel old. You have really tapped into the need of our segment of the market. You’ve given us a place to feel at ease and yet be challenged and motivated. It’s almost like having a personal trainer because the groups are small. And, lastly, I love that it’s game-based & not boring repetitions
Great! Love the variety - I really enjoy the classes, the instruction and the other participants. It is a very good program.
I am healthier, more agile, less afraid to exert myself and more apt to exercise.
Enlightening; fun; good discipline. The program provides a good way to learn how to use all types of muscles linked with brain and balance activities. The various activities were good for me and exercised muscle and skills I have not been working on my own. The stretching, coordination and mental activation combined to provide a total body experience. Made me feel I got a total workout rather than just working one part at a time. My cardio endurance improvement was higher than expected because I already exercise regularly and though I had good cardio endurance. Annora was an important factor in the program. She was a great leader, explainer, educator through the process everyday. She did an excellent job and was an inspiring teacher. Thank you!
The FASTSTART program is a phenomenal experience that has inspired me in all areas of my life! Annora is a compassionate, knowledgeable, and experienced expert in fitness and training! Working with her is a worthy and valuable investment for health and wellness!
I feel energized and focused to move ahead to each of my personal goals. If you are in the place to make changes, in your physical and mental well being this programs offers a good opportunity.
This was the most fun I have ever had exercising. The training was always interesting and Annora is probably the best instructor I have ever had in my life for training and making progress. This is an amazing experience, in 21 days I am feeling better than I have felt in years.
Enjoyable and fun. I am so amazed at the changes in strength, body composition and mental activity - so little effort for so much result. Quick and easy way to get results. I had so much fun. Loved the instructors and making new friends.
Very much enjoyed the experience. Didn’t realize how much of a workout I could get in 35 minutes! Instructors are excellent, great motivators and very empathetic to our “conditions”! Excellent program - would highly recommend to others.
Proud of myself that I gained flexibility, endurance, and reaction time and lost a little weight and an inch from my waist. Well worth it and really fun. I met lots of nice people too.
Defy Aging Solutions is the most innovative fitness model I have ever seen as a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. The assessment is detailed, personalized, and spot on in regards to the areas in need of improvement. Annora makes you feel right at home and comfortable with the entire process. I strongly recommend becoming a member. I can’t tell you how many patients I take care of that have fallen due to poor balance, or how many patients I’ve seen limit their activity because they don’t have the muscle mass to support them during their physical activities, as basic as walking in the mall. After your consultation, you leave Defy Aging Solutions feeling confident that you have a fitness partner who will help you achieve your fitness goals and who genuinely cares about your health and well-being. Don’t delay, call today and schedule your consultation. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did, your body and mind will return the gesture by providing you with many years of good health!
I have really benefited. I am walking and standing straighter and strengthened my left arm. It was fun & enjoyable. The activities change quickly; not boring and the small groups make it very comfortable.
