Functional fitness for older, active adults

Manufactured by


The workout designed to give our golden years a healthy glow.

How Does LifeTrail Work?

Rather than isolating the muscles to work them independently, LifeTrail Advanced Wellness System uses functional fitness, an integrated approach that encourages all the muscles to work together to better prepare the body for the demands of real life.

Give older, active adults the freedom of revitalizing fitness with LifeTrail Advanced Wellness System, the outdoor workout designed to make it easier for users to perform daily tasks and enjoy a better quality of life. LifeTrail Advanced Wellness System includes 21 activity panels built on the principles of functional fitness: progressively challenging exercises patterned after the twists, turns, and movements of everyday life. The result: Adults are stronger and have more energy to complete the real-life activities that matter most.

Each station offers three activity panels and multiple, progressive exercises to keep workouts fun and challenging.

User-friendly instructions make it easy to customize the workout according to comfort level and ability.

Users apply their own body weight as resistance to build total-body strength, flexibility, and balance.

Safety bars help beginners get accustomed to the equipment, but can be relied upon less as comfort level grows.

Smaller muscles that stabilize the joints get strengthened too, giving users greater movement and preventing injury.

Recommended surfacing is concrete.

Closed-chain exercises, which keep the user’s feet in contact with the ground as they bear their own weight, make the muscles work together in the same multi-joint movements they make in daily life.

LifeTrail Advanced Wellness System promotes and supports the key elements of physical wellness that make for a better quality of life:

21 Activity Panels. 159 Exercises. Countless Health Benefits.

Result: Better posture Benefit: Decreases the risk for arthritis in the spine

Choose from our complete line of 21 activity panels to create a system of up to 7 three-sided stations. Each activity panel features multiple exercises, for a total of 159 possible exercises.

As users go through the proper motions of each exercise, they’re naturally standing taller, drawing their shoulder blades down, elongating the neck, and bringing the hips into neutral alignment—all the elements of good posture.

Watch demonstration videos for all 159 exercises at LifeTrail.com.

Proven Results for a Better Quality of Life

Result: Improved balance Benefit: Prevents dangerous falls LifeTrail’s exercises include elements of controlled instability—a technique that actually builds the user’s stability. As users become stronger, they can take away points of contact to improve their balance.

Result: Greater flexibility Benefit: Decreases risk of injury and lower-back pain A complete workout on LifeTrail actively stretches most of the body’s muscles—including the smaller, joint-stabilizing muscles that many workouts overlook.

Result: Increased strength Benefit: Improves the ability to independently lift heavy objects Each LifeTrail exercise uses the user’s own body weight as resistance—rather than free weights or machines—in order to build strength in a way that’s constantly challenging without ever being intimidating.

Anatomy of an Activity Panel The LifeTrail Advanced Wellness System activity panels have been designed and fully tested to meet the needs of older, active adults. • Each activity panel includes detailed instructional signage and any matching exercise equipment • Multiple exercises cater to all fitness levels, from beginner to advanced • Large images and text make the instructions easy to read and understand • Text and colors have the most readability for older-adult optical health

Example of a custom sign

Welcome Sign Provides helpful instructions on how to use the system and maintain proper form as you exercise. Customize it for an additional fee to promote local sponsors or community priorities. ZZLT0066

• When necessary, exercise equipment can be adjusted to fit the user’s height • Risk management disclaimer appears at the bottom of every panel

Result: More muscular endurance Benefit: Boosts energy and reduces fatigue With 159 possible exercises, LifeTrail offers enough variety to keep users motivated to work out regularly. The more they work out, the more their muscle endurance grows, and the easier it becomes for them to stay active longer.
