About silver fox elite fitness founder

Meet Djenaba Gregory-Faal

Certified fitness trainer Djenaba Gregory-Faal founded Silver Fox Elite Fitness company after transforming a life of obesity and certain early death to one of healthy, active living in spite of being in her mid-50’s.  Djenaba has worked to achieve personal fitness transformation through a combination of mindful eating and regular exercise, but the cost of regular personal trainer sessions made working with them occasional, even though it was evident trainers helped improve the progress toward her personal fitness goals.

The research is clear.

  • The US population is living longer yet Senior Citizens are more likely to be plagued with limiting health factors contributed to inactivity and poor nutritional choices. (US Surgeon General, 2019)
  • “Senior Fitness Gap” is created as Seniors avoid addressing health needs due lack of access to; money, fitness professionals, and engaging culturally relevant activities. (Gregory-Faal, K.D 2020)
  • More than 70% of African American Seniors adults do not engage in the recommended amount of physical activity and both inactivity and poor diet cause at least 300,000 deaths a year in the United States. (Hatfield, H.C. PhD, 2019).
  • The COVID-19 mortality rate for African Americans is more than twice the rate for Whites, Asians and Latinos, mostly due to preventable diseases (APM Research, May 27, 2020).



It is the mission of Silver Fox Elite Fitness (Silver Fox) to remove barriers of access to fitness options for adults ages 55 and over.
