Personal training for seniors isn’t “fitness lite.” It means training that’s designed for the needs and limitations commonly associated with age — joint issues, joint safety, limited flexibility, poor balance, and low strength and endurance. At Framework Personal Training in Reno, our trainers specialize in personal training for seniors who want to reap the benefits of fitness.
An Experienced Approach
Working with a personal trainer from Framework means more than a simple walking program. A personalized fitness plan that accounts for each client’s individual needs and limitations means challenging workouts that don’t put you at risk of injury. Low-intensity functional training – movements that mimic daily activities – with a focus on flexibility, core and coordination are designed to ensure our clients enjoy the full benefits of exercise. And they’re pretty impressive – decreasing insulin resistance, increasing bone density, improving metabolism and quality of sleep. Regular exercise also slows down the loss of muscle mass and can boost the immune system, helping speed recovery from things like surgery. Its reasons like this that health experts recommend strength training for older adults.
Many older clients deal with issues like low back pain and arthritis. The right personal trainer will be able to accommodate for these conditions, and you’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish even with simple exercises and limited range of motion. The goal is to improve strength and performance – and you will.
If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of personal training, no matter what your age or current fitness level, we can help.
