Benefits of Personal Training for Seniors
Reduces back, hip and knee pain- Strength training as a senior can help build pain free mobility throughout your body. If you suffer from aches and pains, stretching, strengthening and soft tissue work can help ease the symptoms.
Improve balance and mobility- Strength training as a senior citizen can help you become more mobile and strong, and minimize your chances of falling and injuring yourself during day to day routines.
Improve cardiovascular health- Strength training can help keep your heart healthy. It also helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
Increase bone density- Resistance training can increase overall bone health and help prevent osteoporosis that may cause hip and knee replacements.
Enhances mood- Exercise helps stipulate endorphins in the body, which are known to enhance your mood. In fact, studies show that not only does exercise reduce your likelihood of depression, but it can also help with long-term mental illness.
