Silvertips Boxing – Active Aging for Functional Independence (Ages 55+ and Seniors)

Yes, typically by this point “silver tips” have come out in all of us.  Consider active aging and functional independence group classes, they are designed to mitigate against the physical and mental challenges that older adults and seniors are facing over time. Lifelong physical activity, combined with specific functional training, is key to maintaining physical independence. Training includes: neuromuscular (nerve to muscle); musculoskeletal (muscles and bones); balance; mobility, cardiorespiratory (heart and lungs) and cognition (brain).

We do all of this by combining physical exercise, boxing skills and cognitive based challenges/tasks. With regular attendance and active participation you will not only see improvement in overall strength and fitness but you will feel positively supported by your peers and instructor.

The program is designed for the needs of those ages 55+ and seniors.  Participation is based on overall physical fitness, balance and mobility.  People participate in Grizzly Boxing Programs into their 80’s so do not let age alone discourage you from exploring this as an option.

We plan to offer these classes ongoing for 11 months of the year (closing for the month of August).  Currently we are accepting pre registration for twice per week classes Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:30 am to 9:30 am.  Once this class has filled we will offer afternoon class times as well.

With a monthly membership, the cost per class works out to $15/class.  There are no registration fees and no cancellation fees, we do however ask that you kindly provide us with 30 days notice so that we can assist others in their onboarding process to this unique group.

Please Note:  REGISTER AT ANYTIME. We offer a free pre screening phone discussion to determine if you are suitable for the program. Optionally you may also book an initial physical fitness and mobility assessment conducted by a licensed professional prior to commencing training.  The assessment is conducted on site at our facility.  Please note, these classes do require a Physician’s Consent in advance, we have a simple form available for this purpose.  Contact Darcy with any questions by calling 403.992.8032 or email: darcy@grizzlycage.com
