Training when you need it, where you need it.
Welcome to the TOA (Training The Older Adult) Bunker! The TOA Bunker is a private training studio located in Shingle Springs, California and an online health & fitness program that focuses on training the older adult (50+). Robert Linkul, the owner of the Bunker and of TrainingTheOlderAdult.com brings 20+ years of experience, a masters degree in personal training, two NSCA certifications (NSCA*D and CSCS*D) and years of rehabilitating his own body from injury like hip replacements, sciatic back surgery, carpal tunnel surgery, lung cancer and more to his clients on a daily basis.
The second, and better half, of the TOA team is Robert's wife Keagan Linkul. Keagan is the TOA Program Manager and a TOA certified personal trainer as well! Keagan runs our websites, our social media, our marketing and referral programs and ALL the other "behind the scenes" work that keeps the TOA running strong! To put it simply... Keagan is the SHIT!!
"Keagan and I are career fitness professionals, we research the most efficient and effective ways of training our older adult clientele. We train our clients utilizing our proven TOA Method, a "Movement is Life" resistance training method featuring the five components of daily life (see image 1.0). We then customizes each workout based on our clients training outcome (goals) or physical limitations in which they want to overcome. In short, we train our older clients who have injuries and help them get STRONGER!

They prescribe our clients stretching routines, rest and recovery techniques and or other approaches on taking care of their body. Nutrition and medical consultation are not within their scope of practice and training qualifications however, we do have members of our team that do focus in these areas.
