Our Philosophy

In Home Senior Fitness puts the well-being of senior citizens first. Our team of rehab professionals is dedicated to improving each individual's strength, balance, and self confidence, allowing you to live the life you deserve.

In Home Senior Fitness was created to fulfill our patients' wishes to continue a fitness routine after they were discharged from therapy. Upon witnessing the amount of re-hospitalization and re-occurring injuries after our patients quit their therapy fitness routines, we decided there had to be a better way for seniors to maintain their health.

Located in the Greater Tampa Bay, West Central, and Central Florida areas, our goal is to create a safe, positive experience for older adults to improve their physical function without the hassle of traveling to a facility, massive co-payments, and negative insurance qualifications that deter so many from the care they deserve.
