Moxie Mobility Training, LLC
Moxie Mobility Training, LLC was born from personal experience and seeing the need in the community to help older adults improve and maintain their fitness. Getting people moving is important to prevent rehospitalizations due to deconditioning and poor health, lack of education, lack of assistance, homes that aren't conducive to safety and decreased knowledge of support in the community. At MMT, our motto is "Stay Strong & Safe" and we believe this is achieved through communities supporting each member through compassion, accessibility, education, fitness, philanthropy and fostering self-purpose. Let us be your guide to keep you safe at home, happy, and on your own terms with the help you need.

"Kathleen is a master body strength builder. Her encouragement and gentle exercises have improved my posture, overall body strength and balance. Two of my goals were to get myself out of a chair without the aid of my hands and to climb stairs without the aid of a railing. I have now accomplished both tasks.
I am pleased to say my overall fitness has improved with strengthening my legs, arms, back, ankles, and neck movements. My balance has improved because of the exercises.
Kathleen has covered all basis for not only Senior Health but for community information. She checks on Senior Centers in your area and gives you information about the centers activities and services. Kathleen helps with organizing medications, finding closest emergency shelter, think about and plan for later life and end of life. Check list sheets are there to be filled out and a “Who To Call” sheet is displayed on my refrigerator for quick reference.
