Most fitness studios cater to the twenty and thirty year old clientele. However, after 40 our bodies change. Often our energy level decreases, old injuries result in more pain and our performance declines. Body fat increases and muscle mass decreases. However this “inevitable aging” is not set in stone. Many of these issues can be reduced or eliminated by working out smart.
Our exercise routines need to address those changes to ensure they are both safe and effective. Following old routines designed for younger bodies that disregard an individual’s past injuries, musculoskeletal imbalances and postural misalignments, can actually cause more harm than good. Our programs are grounded in the most cutting edge research on how we age, evidence based functional assessments and programs designed to adapt and mitigate the functional changes we face and the individual’s health and functional fitness level.
