I was so “EXCITED” when founder Julie Buckeye introduced me to the BalloFlex family! It’s a “NEW & FRESH” era in wellness for everyone regardless of age or capabilities to take back their health. What could be more rewarding at the end of the day than to know you have made a difference in people’s lives’? BalloFlex not only gives me the opportunity to support and instruct you but gives each of you the opportunity to “TAKE THE FIRST STEP”.

BalloFlex is a 30 minute seated chair fitness activity that has been designed to specifically achieve results without breaking a sweat. Lunch hours, after-hours, senior centers, or at the gym. If you’re looking for an on-site health and wellness program for your employees, your residents, home fitness, or your local gym, contact me.

I am an Nationally Certified Activities Consultant. I am also a Navy Veteran. I grew up helping take care of the elderly Townspeople. It was a town of about 200. I started working in a Nursing Home in High School. I love working with the Elderly and believe God has given me a talent to bring life to those that feel they have nothing left to give. I have been using the same 2 exercise CD’s for years because I don’t like a lot of what is offered out there. I really hate videos that people put on and then expect their Residents to be able to follow it. I prefer a live demonstration. Then I saw Balloflex in action. I love it. I truly believe you can have fun doing exercise and this program is proof.
