Seniors & Mature Athlete Fitness Training
Strength training with my clients 55 and over helps them relieve joint pain, control weight, and increase their range of motion/ flexibility.
Seniors and "mature athletes", what we refer to as the 55 years old and older crowd, are encouraged to consider a fitness program. Personal fitness is proven to improve your quality of life and increase the longevity of your life. With age comes an array of physical issues that can be easily reduced or be reversed through a regimented exercise plan I will provide you with.
If you are a senior in the Apollo Beach, Ruskin, Sun City Center, or surrounding Florida areas, call me today and schedule your first personal training consultation.
Joint pain, or arthritis, comes in two forms: rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. According to studies, the amount of people ailed by a form of arthritis is growing and starting at younger ages.

Strength training is a form of fitness, designed to improve strength over a length of time. When done correctly, this form of exercise has a positive effect on joints, providing them with productive stress rather than joint distress. Whereas flexibility training will allow your joints, muscles, and tendons to have a greater range of motion as they become stronger.
Seniors and mature athletes already training with me have noticed significant changes, including:

Some of the most common benefits of weight training are:
Training with a professional is key to maintaining a body that will last over time. Additional benefits that are frequently missed include: improvements in balance and mobility, increase in bone density, and overall improvement in self-esteem and self-image.
For all ages, including seniors and mature adults, weight training is a way to prevent, and in some cases reverse, the loss of lean muscle mass.
