FREE Adult Functional Independence Test {AFIT} Seminar

We are happy to announce that we have rescheduled our FREE AFIT workshop!


Tuesday, October 27, 2020 @ 6:30pm

Do you have concerns about your posture, strength, balance, endurance, or flexibility as you are getting older? If so, come see our experts who can help you age optimally, safely, and help prevent injuries from falls. Physical therapist, Mike Salerno, PT will be giving a FREE seminar on aging well and exercise. It will focus on providing you information about the Adult Functional Independence Test (AFIT). The AFIT can also help identify chronic problems before they occur.

The AFIT is a functional assessment for people over 50 that consists of 15 performance-based tests done by a licensed PT. These tests provide valid and reliable measures of the 5 key aspects of fitness: posture, strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility. Currently, Salerno is the only therapist in the state of Nebraska that is certified to perform the AFIT.

Exercise is Medicine

"If exercise could be packed into a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine in the nation." 

In 2007, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) developed an initiative, "Exercise is Medicine" (EIM), to promote overall public health and reduce long term health care costs. Exercise can be a powerful intervention if prescribed, monitored and progressed by physical therapists. 

Come join us for this 1-hour event and learn how you can optimize your health today!
