The vast majority of adults in middle age find that staying in shape is not as easy as it used to be. Over the years, we often develop a variety of problems such as arthritis, as well as back, neck, knee, hip and foot issues that set us back in our ability to stay fit. As we age, our posture will often slip, we are more prone to injuries and our metabolisms shift into low gear.
Baby boomers can greatly benefit from the guidance of a seasoned 4EverFit personal trainer who understands how to approach the fitness goals of an aging population. Around the age of 30, we begin to lose lean mass (muscle) at a rate of about a pound a year. Less muscle equates to lower metabolism, thus resulting in an increase of body fat. Additionally, our bodies become tighter and less flexible. The older client who sets off on a fitness program without the knowledge of program design, corrective exercise and flexibility improvement techniques is setting himself/herself up for injuries.
At 4EverFit, one of our highly experienced and skilled trainers will design the program to help you safely achieve your best possible level of fitness. A one-size fits all program is usually not advisable for the boomer generation. You are a unique individual and you need a unique program designed specifically for you and your body.
We love seniors at 4EverFit, and we want to help you live independently and healthfully throughout your lifetime.
You’ve seen too many otherwise healthy people, maybe your mother or father, feeble and hunched over in a wheelchair… and you don’t want this to be you.
The good news is that it’s never too late to get in shape, improve posture and create a strong, more flexible body to keep you independent way beyond your golden years.
