Here’s a startling statistic – according to the World Health Organization, roughly 3.2 million deaths worldwide are the result of insufficient physical activity. It’s the worrying and predictable outcome of modern lives that have little physical activity during leisure time and sedentary behavior during domestic or occupational times. Passive modes of transportation have also increased. In other words – we’re pretty much always sitting down, and it’s a big problem. Fortunately, exercise now supports health later in life. And it’s never too late to get started.
Fostering Independence & More
Studies confirm that people who exercise as they age are not only more independent, they’re able to perform daily activities more easily as well. The most effective form of fitness for older adults (and everyone, really) is a combination of moderate intensity cardiovascular exercise and strength training performed a few times every week. That can sound intimidating to someone who isn’t familiar with the gym. But the right personal trainer can make all the difference. The certified trainers here at Framework Personal Training in Reno specialize in senior fitness, and we’re proud to work with adults at all stages of fitness. If you’re ready to start training so that you can enjoy the benefits of fitness now and later in life, we’re ready to help. There are so many reasons for older adults to work out a few days a week, and partnering with a trainer can make it enjoyable and productive.
And it’s not just about independence. Older adults who exercise regularly enjoy other benefits too, including a lowered risk of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and high blood pressure. They also have improved cognitive function, less frailty, a healthier body mass, and a higher level of cardiorespiratory function.
