HydroWorx Celebrates Aging at LeadingAge (formerly AAHSA) Conference
On an International scale, men and women are living longer, fuller lives. Not surprisingly, more and more are driven to remain as healthy as possible despite normal physical responses to aging, such as arthritis, bursitis and other chronic conditions. Fortunately, many have found that the secret to staying active can be as close as water, specifically therapy pools.
HydroWorx’s therapy pools have helped thousands of “Baby Boomers” like three-time New York City Marathon winner Alberto Salazar who are interested in keeping their bodies and minds healthy through aquatic exercise, rehabilitation and conditioning. And from October 16-19, HydroWorx will celebrate “A-G-E” at the LeadingAge/IAHSA Global Ageing Conference and Exposition in Washington, D.C.
Anson Flake, CEO and co-founder, HydroWorx, Middletown, Pa., knows how important regular activity is to people of all ages. “The power of water to heal is truly remarkable. Clients like Alberto continually share inspirational stories of how HydroWorx equipment has helped them stay in the best possible shape regardless of natural aging processes and medical issues.”
Salazar currently coaches the successful Oregon Project, a team of elite runners that includes American Galen Rupp and Brit Mo Farah. Committed to innovative training and rehab methods, Salazar uses a HydroWorx X80 underwater treadmill, complete with resistance jets, with his athletes; he also uses the unit himself.
Explains Salazar, “The HydroWorx unit is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment I use… This is the closest thing to running outside on the land that there is.”
The LeadingAge/IAHSA Global Ageing Conference and Exposition in Washington, D.C. is held annually. This year, keynote speakers include author Richard Jackson, former president of Ireland Mary Robinson, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and poet Maya Angelou. Attendees are invited to visit HydroWorx booth, #913, and try the X80 underwater treadmill.
HydroWorx offers a wide range of underwater treadmill pools, underwater treadmills, and peripheral products and services. Every day, more than 15,000 athletes and patients use HydroWorx technology to recover from injuries and health conditions.
