Man feeling freedom on open sea

Our Mission​

Our mission is to empower individuals to live a happier, healthier life.

First and foremost we ensure happiness among the families, and clients in which we provide service. As a team our scope goes far beyond simply physical aspects. Happiness is a major part of the program, and often times the aging process creates uncertainties. Is there something that happened? Can we accommodate more? Can we put them in touch with someone to ensure greater happiness? A healthy aging process requires collaboration, we utilize our industry connections to promote a well-rounded approach when needed.

Next, we approach the physical aspects of well-being. Every one of our current, and future clientele have varying backgrounds in regard to their health at the time in which they begin. However, that does not alter the end goal, we create and implement individualized exercise and therapy programs to improve physical functioning, reduce pain, promote independence, and improve strength, balance and posture.

We specialize in the aging population, including those living with various conditions associated with aging such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, and many others. We are always thrilled to work with individuals who believe in a proactive approach towards successful aging as well.

There are a number of reasons on the basis of why LiveWell Southwest Florida was founded.

  • Retirement does not look like what most people had in mind. In many instances an unforeseen diagnosis, or event causes an alteration in lifestyle. However, many of these diagnosis can be alleviated, or events such as a fall can be avoided, with a regularly implemented exercise program.
  • Our current health care is a reaction- based system. What does that mean? Normally, an event occurs, and a long list of medical procedures are to follow. For example, a fall occurs, first comes surgery, multiple weeks of physical therapy, and ultimately fear of another fall. What if we could get out in front, limit and even prevent these crises from occurring?
  • Many feel it is too late to begin an exercise program, they believe there is no use. However, an exercise program not only has the power to promote a happier, healthier life, but it can also eliminate many nightmares such as losing independence, the inability to continue driving, and the loss of regular hobbies that bring everyday joy.

Exercise is medicine. Research review, after research review points towards physical activity as the only consistent method of improving one’s life no matter their current health status.

3 Guiding Principles

Often times when we think of health the first item that comes to mind is the absence of disease or illness. “I do not have this, that, or the other, I must be healthy”. Well that is the way health has been looked at in the past.

Health defined is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing.

In the United States we have started to create a trend, as a society, we are living longer. Life expectancy is increasing, and trends point towards a continued rise. However, health span, the years of one’s life that is generally healthy, and free of disease and impairment is not increasing. Essentially we are living longer, but the latter years are often filled depression, loneliness, and sedentary state, all of which complicate the aging process.

As lifespan continues to increase across the United States, we must make it a point to increase healthspan in a linear fashion. LiveWell Southwest Florida is your number one option for that trend to begin.

Many look at a gym membership, a nutrition plan, or fitness professionals as a cost. Lets look at this differently.

Scenario 1: You pull money from your checking account to spend as ‘fun money’ or a ‘rainy day’ allowance. Overtime this account is going to be depleted and ultimately have a balance of zero.

Scenario 2: You take that ‘fun money’ or the ‘rainy day allowance’ and place it into an investment account. The money is “gone”, but it has the power to grow so that one day you can have more to spend, and more to enjoy.

This concept applies to your health as well. The up front cost on nutrition plans, fitness professionals, or a gym membership is NOT a cost, it is an INVESTMENT on your future health. The benefits associated with regular exercise are shown to improve health in countless areas. The benefits and effects will not be seen over night, but we can promise we will beat commonly understood theme of doubling your money in 10 years.

Ask yourself one question, why do you live in beautiful southwest Florida?

That’s right. We all live in paradise because we want to enjoy everything it has to offer. We escaped the harsh winters of the northeast, and the ever-changing climate of the mid-west. Why? Because we knew that there was life to be enjoyed 365 days a year.

We all established a life here in southwest Florida so we could enjoy life Florida has to offer whether its getting away to enjoy an afternoon at the beach, playing a round of golf with the guys, or the ladies, playing tennis or pickle ball, enjoying the nature trails, shopping at local farmers markets, or enjoying the positivity the sunshine brings.

Living a sedentary lifestyle will not allow you to enjoy all the beauty this area has to offer. A sedentary lifestyle brings about added stress, a compromised immune system, and complications during the aging process.

Walking is step number one, lets progress along that health meter and get you back to what you have always loved!
