As seen on:
Launched in 2019 by physiotherapist and CrossFit trainer Melissa Heng, the Legends program is based on the pillars of CrossFit but managed by medical professionals. The instructors fuse their medical experience with fitness which helps individualize the training for each participant.
Thrive Healthcare continues to improve its Legends programming and track various data points indicative of health and longevity in aging clients. Their clientele of around 30 participants has stayed consistent even during the COVID-19 lockdowns and is growing.
Preliminary results of their programming show improvements in participants' lower limb strength (using 30-second chair stand test) over 3 months. There were also some improvements to the grip strength test which is a key longevity indicator.
