WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU
What I have learned is that everyone’s program needs to be carefully customized to their needs, whether a physical ailment is present or not. Just the slightest adjustment to an exercise can make all the difference.
Research shows us that resistance training is one of the best ways to prevent and treat many ailments. Because of this, elements of resistance training are applied in almost every type of session I offer. With proper resistance training, your body in general becomes more effective at countless tasks, leading to a better quality of life.
When your body has had a proper tune up you’re less likely to hurt yourself doing day to day tasks. You’re more balanced, you carry yourself with better posture and you’re stronger, more aware and in control of your body. Your reaction time quickens, and you have increased muscle mass and bone density.
In addition, after analyzing hundreds of peer reviewed studies, research shows us that in those aged 50+ who engage in resistance training twice a week, a 20% reduction in all-cause mortality is seen. Translation — this basically means you are less likely to die from just about anything, and that’s accompanied with up to a 13% increase in cognition in later years.
IT’S A FACT
To achieve this optimal level of functioning it is highly important that you are training the right way. Starting a program that isn’t suited to you or is improperly practiced can be detrimental. That’s where I come in, creating customized, adaptive approaches starting from where a person is and progressing to where they want to be, safely and effectively.
