Francine Zimbalist BASRaT-Reg
Founder, innovator & educator
I have been sporty all my life. From childhood into adulthood, fitness, dance and competition have fired my belly. My fitness goals have evolved over the years, with prevention of disease and preservation of good health now at the forefront. I have become very focused on what my changing body and mind desires and needs in order to complement my life.
I am passionate about passing on life lessons to help you get active, stay active and achieve an optimal quality of life.
I have worked in the field of sport, health, fitness and education since 2002. In the past, my approach to musculoskeletal health had been heavily biomechanics (movement) focused and I was less focused on the physiology of connective tissue (such as bone) when caring for my clients and patients.
Like many young adults, I did not know about the depreciation of our bones as we age - that our bone building years are finite and that we are all destined towards fragility. In 2012 I had an 'aha' moment which changed the way I communicate with people about their bodies.
Today, my mission is clear. Osteoporosis is a silent disease, often only diagnosed after a fall or fracture. With smart lifestyle choices you can reduce your risk of falling and fracturing. I'm here to help with the exercise side of things – showing you what works, what doesn't, what's safe and what's not.
The exercise for osteoporosis platform offers a complete package for you and others with osteoporosis and osteopenia to exercise in a way that enhances your life. It is my vision that my teachings and your effort will radically improve the quality of your life. Now is the best moment to invest in your health, for today and for years to come.
