Strengthen your body and sharpen your mind with a BioExercise™ session! BioExercise combines activities for both body and mind to improve total body functionality. You’ll learn to move in ways that will challenge and improve your balance.

BioExercise is led by coach Sharon Steele. Sharon is an aqua and land personal trainer, aqua exercise instructor and land exercise instructor.

“BioExercise helps participants address the physical and mental needs of their bodies as they age. This can help improve physical and cognitive health. The program design makes it great for all ages and fitness levels,” says Sharon. She uses the principles of BioExercise with her personal training clients, who have ranged in age from 13 to 80. It is designed for people with cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s, or multiple sclerosis; with joint replacement, arthritis or chronic pain conditions; and those in stroke recovery.

BioExercise incorporates the essential skills of reaching, walking, sitting to stand, bending and lifting, turning and balance, which will help foster an active and healthy lifestyle at any age. “And we’re in the water having fun!” Sharon adds.

BioExercise also focuses on supporting participants to proceed and make progress on their own; exercises easily can be performed on land if you don’t have a pool available.

Living healthfully in today’s world presents a challenge: advancing technology and urbanization has created millions of desk jobs and long commutes, leading to longer hours of sitting. Reliance on technology also means that people are thinking less. In fact, Sharon points out that the ease of technology has made us so “connected” that we have actually become disconnected from our mind and bodies. BioExercise aims to foster a reconnection as it encourages movement in all three planes of motion and development of the use of new brain pathways.
