Address Muscle Loss

By Aimalicia Staub, MSW, @aimaliciastaub

Mayo Clinic physician, Dr. Nathan LeBrasseur, explains, "Exercise is the most powerful intervention you can employ to address muscle loss... incorporating large body movements such as those found in functional fitness training mimic the tasks you engage in during the course of your normal day and will help maintain your strength and stamina." Charter House residents are able to follow a functional fitness program utilizing the equipment, classes, and activities we offer through our Fitness Center.
