WELCOME to Improved Health!

Hi! My name is Jules (a.k.a Julie) and I am thrilled to welcome you here. I work as a Recreation Therapist (over 25 years with 15+ years specifically with seniors), and have also owned a personal training business in the past. When the pandemic started, I knew a lot of people could no longer attend their gym or community center, so I decided to record fitness workouts that I hoped would help others. My goal was to inspire and motivate people to continue exercising from home. Exercise is one of the most beneficial things for all of us from

a physical, emotional and cognitive standpoint. Recent research states dementia would be decreased by 25% if people were physically active. That's an astonishing statistic! It is also proven that exercise is one of the best ways to fight depression. My hope is that you'll find workouts here to help you become active, and remain active. If you're just starting out, you can find plenty of gentle seated and standing workouts below which would be a great starting point. If you're looking for something a little more challenging, the beginner and intermediate workouts might be more your speed. Whether you're a senior, or someone younger just looking for more gentle workouts, congratulations for taking the step to becoming more active. Your future self will thank you!

Gentle exercise workouts are designed for anyone new to exercise, for those with mobility or various health issues, and for people returning to exercise after an injury or illness. These classes are safe, heart-healthy, and designed to be manageable for those who want a gentle exercise program. Just remember, a journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step.
