6 Compelling Reasons to Say YES!
There are gyms and fitness centers where members can come and go as they please to work out. So, why opt for a personal trainer to become the best you for 2022?
The last 2 years has been difficult for us all and the impact that lock downs, closures, masks, and illness have had on our health has been devastating. This has perhaps affected older adults more than any other group. Gyms are open! A certified personal trainer can safely help mature adults boost their health and mobility as they age so they can stay as active as possible.
Going to the gym can be intimidating and using equipment incorrectly or performing exercises with improper form can lead to injury.
2. Age-Appropriate Exercises
Personal trainers understand the unique challenges mature adults face and that the workout for a 20-year-old is different for a 50 or 70-year-old.
3. Personalized Attention
There’s no guessing involved when it comes to working out with a personal trainer. They will create a custom workout for you, demonstrate how to execute it, then watch and assist while it’s being done to ensure it is done correctly.
BENEFITS OF STAYING ACTIVE FOR BABY BOOMERS & SENIORS
Inactivity can lead to physical and mental issues. By working with a personal trainer, older adults can experience a wide range of health benefits.
1. Ward off Disease
Physical exercise can enhance the immune system, support cardiovascular health, improve digestion, and help manage diabetes, high blood pressure, and other conditions. Mental health can be improved because exercise reduces risk of depression, decreases stress, and improves cognitive function.
2. Improved Mobility
A personal trainer will work with you to build muscle strength and increase flexibility which can help with coordination, balance, and overall mobility.
3. Increased Independence
As more baby boomers and seniors choose to age in place, a personal trainer can help them continue to maintain their independence.
