About Her Inspiration:
Dr. France began her own personal fitness training when she was a little girl. She figured skated competitively and learned the ins and outs of practice, hard work, and discipline. She couldn’t expect to just show up to the skating rink everyday and train – she had to eat healthy and strength train in order to support her body so it can execute all of her skating moves. This was the foundation for her love of fitness. Today she coaches many of her patients on how to begin a fitness program that is appropriate and safe for them, along with helping them to find their motivation and inspiration to keep going, thus improving their emotional and mental well being. Dr. France is committed to helping older adults overcome the obstacles often encountered with aging and make the rest of your life, the best of your life.
