Putting Wellness First During and After Quarantine with the Help of Victus
As we age, it can get harder and harder to keep up with exercise routines and nutritious diets. But, this is also the time when it’s most important to stay healthy—mentally, physically and emotionally. Mind, body and spirit are the three pillars of Victus Health and Wellness Center, a comprehensive health center in nearby Phoenixville that offers a wide range of services, including many specifically for seniors.
The center opened earlier this year and is one of countless businesses affected by the recent closures—so when it reopens, make sure you’re first in line to show your support! Victus features a diverse set of offerings designed to resonate with people of all ages and abilities; all you need to bring is a passion for changing your life. If it’s physical activity you’re after, Victus’ group fitness classes are a perfect fit for seniors, with programs that include Active Aging; Functional Fitness; Sit, Stand & Strengthen; and Stretch and Tone. And seniors who are just getting back to fitness don’t need to worry about keeping up with the class, as all group fitness classes are scalable to participants of all abilities. Victus offers personal sessions and specialized training to help clients after illness or injury, and it is also in the approval process for joining Silver Sneakers as a partner program.
Apart from the fitness center, Victus also has a fully functional kitchen, where visitors can take cooking classes to pick up tips (and recipes!) for healthy eating, which is especially important as we age. After your class, swing by the local produce shop to grab some ingredients and make your own healthy creation in your Canvas Valley Forge apartment! You can also take advantage of nutrition counseling with in-person, phone or live video consultations to help you understand where you may be going wrong when it comes to eating and to start making healthier choices. You can work with the registered dietitian nutritionist to build meal plans and get assistance with grocery shopping, as well as medical nutrition therapy for disease management.
Those battling disease may also benefit from Victus’ free seminars, including on medical marijuana and CBD, and qualified participants can get certified for the PA Medical Marijuana Program, which has been an important tool for people suffering from everything from chronic pain to Parkinson’s to glaucoma.
At Victus Health and Wellness Center, you can prioritize full-body health, all without traveling far from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. It’s all just 15 minutes from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment, waiting for you after quarantine restrictions are lifted. In the mean time, check out their website to see what videos and tutorials are available at home.
