Orlando-based personal training gym Darwin Fitness helps seniors fight Dementia and Alzheimer

Gym focuses on private coaching for seniors in Orlando


April 24, 2023; Orlando, FL – Darwin Fitness, a fitness studio located at 110 North Orlando Ave. Suite 5 Maitland, FL 32751, is helping older adults fight dementia and Alzheimer's Disease by getting fit and healthy. The studio has a dedicated staff of professionals, with a fitness program designed for older adults to keep them physically active.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the brain disorder affects 580,000 people over the age of 65 in Florida. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease don’t just affect older adults. Around 13.6% of people 45 years old and older experience subjective cognitive decline. There is also an effect on family members and friends who are tasked with becoming caregivers.


Darwin Fitness aims to help older adults in the Orlando area through exercise. The fitness studio offers personal training for seniors in Orlando to help them fight against dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Physical activity has been found to aid the brain and help individuals with their mental health and brain function. Fitness training keeps the blood flowing and increases brain chemistry. In addition, physical activity slows the natural reduction of brain connections, which occurs due to aging. 


Exercise also helps individuals sharpen their learning skills, reasoning, and thinking. Individuals with mild cases of Alzheimer’s Disease can improve their memory with multiple exercise sessions each week of 30 minutes to 60 minutes. In addition, exercise can help individuals at risk for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia to slow the start of the conditions. 


Darwin Fitness is the Orlando elderly personal trainer expert. The studio’s experienced trainers work with a variety of older clients experiencing different physical and mental health conditions. Trainers work closely with clients to improve flexibility, movement, balance, muscle mass, bone health, and cardiovascular health. While improving these areas, clients can boost their memory, reasoning, and other mental health areas. The studio’s fitness program designed for older adults will help improve their overall health, as they advance in age. 


“Exercise is vital to seniors, and it is more than just losing a few pounds,” Jean-Sebastien Fabre, Darwin Fitness founder, said. “Exercise can help an older person remain independent and self-sufficient. It means not needing to rely on others for help.”


In Florida, there are 827,000 family caregivers for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease. Those caregivers provide 1.3 billion hours of unpaid healthcare to their loved ones. Fortunately, exercise is an affordable way for older adults in Florida to slow the progression of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. It also provides individuals with the chance to keep their bodies strong. 


“In addition to improving a person’s body and mind by exercising, there is also a social element older people gain,” Fabre explained. “By getting exercise and interacting with others, seniors can make connections with similar individuals experiencing many of the same issues.”
