Testimonials and Success Stories
After Fifty...? Can we be Nifty...? Asking myself this question at 70+ I enjoy a solid answer of YES...!
After only a short 90 day, twice a week STRENGTH training program with Nifty after Fifty in Apple Valley, CA my success with this program was put to a sudden test. Involved in a major freeway accident, I am pleased to report my body has recovered remarkably well in ten weeks. I attribute, as does my medical team, this quick recovery to the increased STRENGTH benefit gained, the supportive staff and of course the upbeat Nifty after Fifty members contributing laughter and warm camaraderie. My family and friends now refer to me as Nifty after Seventy! Thank you...

Late in 2010 my doctor called me to his office. My blood work was all out of the normal range. He told me that my blood pressure was elevated, I was overweight, and he also diagnosed me with Type 2 Diabetes. He started me on cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes medication. He also talked to me about Nifty after Fifty and how he thought that it would help me get my health problems under control. I was given a prescription to get started on an exercise program at Nifty after Fifty.
I had not exercised in years! Sarah, the Fitness Coach, made me feel welcomed right away. She explained that she would work with me through developing a customezed program that could help me get back into exerciseing and get my blood work results closer to what the doctor wanted them to be.
My mother has been attending Lakewood’s Nifty after Fifty since last August. My mom is 87!!! She had heart valve replacement surgery on her 85th birthday and is just now doing great. Nifty after Fifty is a big part of that!! My mom is thrilled and so are we!!
She is sooooo comfortable and happy there. She loves everyone there and just feels soooo accepted. My mom has never been a really confident person in that type of setting, but from day one EVERYONE has made her feel like gold!! There is not anyone there who has not treated her wonderfully!!
She was out ill for one week and when we walked in [to Nifty], she stopped for a minute and said "I feel like I'm coming home." She missed it soooo much!!
Just know the work everyone does there is fantastic and it means soooo much to my mom and to our family.
I have been a member since February 1, 2010. By following the instructions given by Fitness Coach Eddie and being consistent with my exercise program I no longer have sciatic pain in my left leg. I lost inches and gained muscles.
I encourage any senior person to join Nifty after Fifty. Be consistent and you will be amazed how much better you will feel. You will feel more energetic and have opportunities to meet other wonderful people.
If you are diabetic and have poor circulation, you will find you start healing better and your glucose numbers will definitely go down.
My stamina, weight and strenth have improved markedly since I started this program. Just wonderful. I am 79, had a lot of hip and knee pain when I started, was using a cane. Have lost weight, lowered my A1C by 3 points, no knee or hip pain and hardly ever need the cane. Kudos to Sarah McCoy and Nifty After Fifty."
