50 Plus Fitness for Strength and Mobility
As you get older, sometimes even the simplest everyday tasks can start to become challenging. Metabolic rate lowers, weight seems to nudge inexorably up, energy levels fall and chances of disease and injury increase. The good news is that with structured exercise and sensible nutrition for health and vitality you can delay and in many cases reverse this slow decline.
Enjoy strength, flexibility, and mobility
Play football with your grandchildren, dig the garden, carry heavy shopping or bend over with ease, have a strong healthy back, hit the ski slopes, or go windsurfing well after you’ve received your free bus pass. Diets don’t Work 50plus Fitness looks at all the components of fitness, improving your everyday life so that you can enjoy it to the full.
A Gentle Approach
We learn about your fitness levels in our consultation and initially establish a simple but solid foundation of strength, fitness and flexibility. We then progress onto new challenges and more complex movement patterns at a pace that’s challenging but achievable using your body weight but also a clever modern kit. A big part of the process is belief – the belief that it’s never too late to improve or make a profound change to the quality of your life through strength and fitness.
Emphasis on Strength & Flexibility
Functional strength training improves coordination, strength, and flexibility. This dramatically increases bone density, preventing osteoporosis and improving joint stability and strength. Varied cardio-vascular exercise keeps the heart and lungs healthy while preventing disease. Advanced stretching and flexibility work keeps you loose, pain and injury-free. Gentle agility work keeps you light and nimble. Core stability and lower back routines keep your back working properly.
Balanced Nutritional Approach
Our nutritional coaching is always realistic with no fads or gimmicks. We encourage our 50+ students to follow the wholefood diet principles for most of the time but allow treats and indulgencies, just in a planned and clever way. Swapping wine or beer for prosecco or slimline spirit mixers, eating lower-calorie chocolates, and planning ahead when going out are just some of the techniques we teach. As we age what we put in really is what we get out, but you can still have fun too!
The greater your age, the more pronounced the benefits
The older you get the more pronounced the benefits of good nutrition and functional fitness become. Our oldest client is 84. Before embarking on personal training with us she was largely dependent on social workers and family for everyday tasks. With gentle but challenging (and fun) sessions she is now fully independent, able to carry heavy shopping, get around town, attend dance classes and enjoy her grandchildren.
