Cambridge Village of Apex: Personalized Fitness Coaching as Part of the Optimal Living Program
The Optimal Living Program at Cambridge Village of Apex is a health and wellness program that is personalized to individual residents. Fitness Coaching is a key element of the Optimal Living Program and Wellness Director Patrick Schrader shares how that aspect is personalized to individuals.
Schrader said, “When we get a resident who is looking for that additional direction for their health and wellness journey, we want to support them in any way that we can. Because everyone’s goals are very specific, we don’t want to employ a cookie-cutter approach. We have residents come into the facility and me or one of my team will be able to do a full scale orientation to get them comfortable with our equipment in our setting. We can then go one step further and do a personalized assessment to get their baseline data points on their balance, functional movement and strength. Based on those parameters, we can customize a program that the residents can either do independently on their own or with our staff to get extra guidance through one-on-one.”
