The TEAM

 

By staying active and healthy, aging adults can preserve the confidence and self esteem that comes from maintaining independence.

 

We specialize in helping people of all ages and levels, but those over 50 in particular, live better by moving more. We bring completely customized workouts to your home at your convenience. You don't need to have any special equipment. We bring it to you. We focus on helping people find enjoyment in being active, addressing any physical and lifestyle imbalances keeping you from a greater quality of life. 

We know getting started with exercise can be intimidating, so our nationally certified and insured trainers are gentle, compassionate and well-versed in dealing with a wide range of physical conditions. We provide our in-home training to those who feel more comfortable in their own surroundings. We bring the equipment and you bring a smile and motivation. If you are a senior seeking to improve your health and fitness level, or the child of a senior looking to help Mom or Dad maintain their strength and mobility, the professionals of Genesis Fitness & Wellness can help! We have worked with clients from 10 to 90+ with great success.
