Deb Padden, Certified Personal Trainer

Glenmeadow personal trainer Deb Padden works with a senior in a Glenmeadow exercise class.

The challenge: After years spent working with seniors, Deb knows that balance is a major concern for older adults. As is keeping fit and protecting their health. “I’ve been a personal trainer for 30 years, and in each age bracket, concerns change,” Debbie says.

Our assist: In hopes of helping seniors improve their balance—and their personal safety—Deb designed a new program called “Balance Works” several years ago. A fitness instructor and a Pilates and yoga instructor, Deb leads many classes that help our residents feel strong and also recover from injuries. “I love people,” Deb says. “I love helping people get fit, and I really like helping them feel good about themselves through physical fitness.”

The result: Our residents can focus on maintaining strength and flexibility, and they feel safer, knowing they are taking actions that will help them prevent falls. “The people who exercise are the people who want to continue their physical fitness,” she says. “My goal for them, always, is that they’ll be able to do next year what they can do this year, maintaining that level of movement and health.”
