Liberty MultiTrainer (LMT) Strength Training Program
What is the LMT Program?
Strength Training for Life: The LMT program is a personalized strength and conditioning program for older adults living in retirement, assisted living and residential communities.
Why the LMT Program?
Weakest Link: Strength is the weakest link in the "fitness chain" for older adults, and strength training, is the first line of defense against muscle loss that occurs with age.
Fighting Frailty: Strength training is a powerful tool against age-related frailty.
Older adults- living in these community settings- need regular, progressive
strength training exercise to combat frailty and dependence.
Benefits of the LMT Program
Functioning & Capacity: Functioning and capacity are the ability to carry out the activities of daily living, including the activities that bring us joy and give meaning to our lives.

Progress Reports: Tracking fitness progress is imperative. All LMT program participants will have their fitness parameters measured using tests that were developed to be safe and fun while still meeting scientific standards for reliability and validity.
