Over 50 And New To Exercise?
If you are over 50 and new to exercise (or took an extended break!), it is not too late to start.
We all know that physical activity can reduce the risk of:
- Joint pain
- Heart disease
- Sleep problems
- Weight management
Even though your birth papers say that you are 55, your biological age can be the same as a 35-year-old!
How is this possible?
Well, it is quite simple. Follow a consistent strength and conditioning program 2-3X/week and you are well on your way. Even if you have not exercised in years, a good trainer can make a program that matches your ability, and progresses safely as you do.
A complete fitness program should include the following:
- Aerobic exercise. Taking the time to do activities that you enjoy like walking, golfing jogging or swimming. Benefiting your cardiovascular system and your weight management.
- Strength training. Lifting weights in a safe and efficient manner to improve posture, maintain bone health and reduce the risk of injury.
- Stretching. Make sure you are moving through your full range of motion to decrease the possibility of injury and muscle soreness.
If you take care of your body, your quality of life will improve. Many of our clients who are over 50 years old, start to see life changing results within 30-60 days of starting a program.
So, if you are over 50, new to exercise, and are looking to make a lifestyle improvement, it is not too late!
