About the Program:

The STANDING STRONG Fitness Program is an 8-week evidence based video exercise program specifically designed for older adults, including those with Osteoporosis.

This program provides 2 new video exercise sessions per week for 8 weeks, setting out to challenge participants in a variety of ways, targeting strength, fitness, balance, posture, and spinal health.

This program is appropriate for independent older adults (who don't require a walker), including those who have been recently diagnosed with osteopenia or early osteoporosis, post-menopausal women, and those looking to start or return to an exercise routine. There is no age limit!

Meet Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Jillian Bergman Stow, Physiotherapist. I have a passion for staying fit and healthy, and ultimately helping older adults do the same.  I’ve been a registered Physiotherapist since 2003 and am co-founder of PhysioCare at Home, an in-home physiotherapy company. 

Time and again I have witnessed how movement & exercise can change lives, no matter your age.  But many people don't know what to do or how to begin their exercise journey.  That's exactly why I created Stronger at Home. 

Stronger at Home Fitness Programs are rooted in Osteoporosis & Older Adult Exercise research and provide step by step guidance throughout your exercise journey.

Can't wait for you to join me in the journey!

Older Adults need more Exercise

  • Did you know that by age 40 we naturally start to lose bone AND every decade after 30 we naturally lose 3-5% of our muscle mass?
  • Did you know that fractures (broken bones) from Osteoporosis are more common than heart attacks, strokes & breast cancer combined?
  • Research has shown that older adults need to perform impact & resistance training at least twice a week for their bone health¬†& muscle strength¬†
  • If you're over 50 years old, research has shown that balance & functional training along with resistance training 3 times per week can help decrease¬†your risk of falls and injury during everyday life
  • When you are consistent with exercise and movement you'll make the most gains in your physical health and fitness
  • Learning how to effectively exercise¬†while protecting your spine is essential if you've been diagnosed with Osteoporosis

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

about the program!

After going through the Standing Strong program, I feel stronger and more confident in my ability to do exercises. I haven’t exercise in quite a while so going forward, I will be following the exercises that I learned in the program.
I enjoyed it and felt stronger after a few weeks of exercise. It was one of the best exercise programs I have taken. The program has made me realize that I can do things to make my body stronger, even though I am getting up in age. I would definitely recommend it to others.
I feel much better in general. Balance has improved greatly and the squats have done wonders for my knees. This program has given me more confidence in my daily ability. I would recommend this program for all seniors.
Overall I’m pleased that I did the course and I feel that my endurance and balance has improved. Would be interested in doing another program.
I thoroughly enjoyed the program. I am stronger. My balance has improved. I am more conscious of moving safely in my day-to-day activities. I have tended to focus on cardio only in the past. This has made me realize how important it is to practice balance and strengthening.
