Want an exciting, fun, and effective way to work out? Then this program is for you! Kathleen’s classes give you a good cardio workout while focusing on whole-body strength, mobility, and balance.

Aerobic exercise offers crucial benefits to the brain, our overall health, mood, and cognitive function. Music motivates us to move and makes exercise fun. Music is central to Kathleen's program.

How to Approach the 21-Day Challenge:

You can just do the classes. Or, you can join us for the 21-day Challenge where every day we’ll do new exercises and activities together. The program is designed to help you get in the habit of moving, tackling the two biggest common challenges in fitness - discipline and motivation.

Studies show that 21 days is about the time it takes to create a new habit. Having a schedule helps to stay on track. Another key factor is Community. You will receive an invitation to join our Facebook Group.

Variety is wonderful when it comes to exercise. On some days we’ll do our Total Body Fitness Classes. On other days, we’ll do stretching exercises, yoga, short strength workouts, walking, and foam rolling. We designed all of the activities to be fun and light-hearted, and all of them are set to music, naturally J

When joining the Challenge, start with the current day of the week. For example, if you are starting on a Wednesday, start with a “Wednesday, Week 1” video. This way we are all on the same track.

During the Challenge, you will receive daily emails with helpful tips, articles, and additional instructions. (You can always unsubscribe if you’d rather not.) Please make sure that our emails get to your primary inbox.

As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor to make sure this exercise program is right for you.

Kathleen Kelly embarked on a second career as a fitness instructor in her late 50s, and was certified as a Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) with subsequent certification as a Senior Fitness Specialist. She teaches group fitness classes in Oakland, CA that combine cardio, strength, and balance exercises, and always conclude with stretching, to enhance flexibility.  The impetus for leading Senior Fitness Classes came from her 80-year old mother, who remarked that although many seniors are in much better shape than in previous eras, fitness classes have not evolved to fit their needs.  While many people remain very active into their 80s and 90s, most “senior” classes seem geared to relatively low-mobility people. So, active 60-80 year olds often have to choose between strenuous classes for younger people, where they risk injury or more sedentary classes for people their age.  Kathleen’s classes offer an alternative that satisfies active older adults, but also offers safe exercises and modifications for any of the myriad “issues” we seniors have earned. 

 Kathleen regularly witnesses the positive improvements that a regular exercise routine brings to the lives of her senior clients, both physically and emotionally. Clients are thrilled to find out, for example, that they are no longer considered pre-diabetic because their numbers have improved dramatically after six months in her class; or they find that when they return for a high-school reunion, they are in such good shape that their friends ask for their secret!  She has experienced these benefits personally, after recovering from a knee-replacement with relative ease and in record time.

Kathleen’s passion is music, which plays an important role in her life, and she finds really helps to motivate her and others in her classes.
