What does 'bodywork' mean to me at age 65?

I remember toning and sculpting classes in the 80's, the focus was on skinny thighs, skinny waists and steel buns. At this stage of life, it means living and moving pain-free and being able to participate in daily activities, or fun things that I want to do. It means mobility vs. immobility. That might include recreational fun like canoeing and dancing, playing with other's grandchildren, or something as simple as putting on my socks. I make it my mission to spread the word that the right kind of exercise and movement are a must. I have learned plenty from those well beyond my years, that fitness and mobility are all. The new goal of my bodywork is restoration, maintenance and agility. To me, that's a combination of flexibility and strength.

Message from Anne Cooke

I spent most of my career in Toronto coordinating fitness programs in corporations and running fitness centers. I had been instructing a lot of classes and personal training for a lot of local clubs and started my own business in 1990. Known then as Anne Cooke Fitness Professionals, my staff and I provided fitness services to large companies like Shell Oil, Imperial Oil, and CIBC. The CIBC contract for example serviced 2500 employees over 4 locations and lasted 10 years.

At the same time, I was privileged to provide private instruction to a number of high-end executives, politicians, and well-known interesting people. As my clientele was older I sought out specialized training in the U.S. to teach me how I could teach them what exercise was right for various conditions. This formed the basis of the FlexAgility™ program for older adults.

Career highlights include being part of women's fitness weekends, organizing and participating in health fairs and fundraisers. The most notable of which was the Blue Mountain Women's Fitness Weekend and my own wellness weekend Fitness in the Falls. In 38 years I have taken time off but not a year and I still love what I do....it's all about the terrific people who are kind enough to spend their time with me! Get involved!
