I’m Too Old (Inc Case Study)

We can all find reasons why we can’t exercise or eat well, unfortunately age is definitely a common one.

It may be true that as we get older we feel less energetic but the reason for this is often not down to our age but the number of years we have been inactive and/or eat poorly.

The truth is: as we get older it becomes even more important that we remain active, to:
– reduce cholesterol & blood pressure
– maintain muscle & mobility
– reduce risk of: osteoporosis, heart disease, Cardio Vascular disease and some cancers
– maintain mobility & independence
– increase energy levels
– protect mental health
– & many more

Considerations:

By all means you may have developed health conditions over the years and may be very unfit at this point, therefore the following considerations should be made before starting your healthier lifestyle (it’s never too late):

– consult your doctor regarding any pre existing health conditions
– start slow & build up the intensity over time
– favour non weight bearing/low impact exercise such as swimming or an exercise bike
– any movement is better than none
– small changes add up over time
–  consider attending a class or using a personal trainer for additional support
– always warm up & cool down
– always finish with gentle stretching

Case Study:

We’ve had the pleasure of working with many retired people and the lady below is a shining example of what we’re capable of in just 10 weeks, even at 63 years old:
