ACE Professional Profile


Donald Laver


About Donald Laver: Good Day. My name is Don Laver. I am an AARP member. I have always been physically active and have assisted clients since 2000. My primary personal motivation in fitness is as part of a comprehensive lifestyle management program aimed at improving and/or maintaining quality of life and extending our productive years. It is the experience I have gleaned from my own quest and those of my clients that I can pass on to you as appropriate to your situation. The power of fitness is all around us. While my own program did not prevent me from contracting an environmentally induced cancer, it helped me rapidly recover from toxic chemotherapy in a way which delighted and surprised my oncologist. Consider a debilitated 84 year old woman for whom I designed a walking program. After a year on this gradually evolving regimen, her anti-depression medication was reduced by 80% and she could easily ascend 15 steps. Or, a 55 year old significantly overweight woman with knee pain and walking difficulties greatly improved with the aid of weight management, water and walking based circuit fitness programs. She can now walk for an hour pain free. I also trained a 52 year old man with exercise phobia who, with patience and understanding, took up the challenge and won the fitness competition at his health club. At 95, my still active father-in-law used to say: “growing old is not for sissies”. For many of us, that is becoming increasingly more obvious. We will face new health challenges of which we never dreamed as younger people. Since most of us would prefer to grow old than not, the adoption of a well conceived exercise and nutrition program can make the process a great deal more tolerable and convenient. In the world of healthy longevity, an overwhelming body of evidence indicates that little else is closer to the truth. Please contact me if you would like to join me in this quest towards a healthful and enjoyable aging process.
