These are two of my clients who I’ve been working with for years now. First, it was Art who was feeling “the old man” coming in. Things were getting more difficult with daily tasks and he decided it was time to invest in a personal trainer like myself to help him.
He was tired of chronic back pain and trouble with balance as well wanting to improve his golf performance. Safe to say he’s made a lot of progress. He is stronger, no longer deals with chronic back pain, improved balance and he hits the ball 20 yards farther!!
So with these results of course his wife Connie gained interest in what he was doing. She was looking to get similar results as Art did but she was dealing with some hip pain. She also has got some great results that include getting stronger, improving body composition, and she no longer deals with hip pain!
So, the reason I bring them up is because strength training has been a big piece of what has been keeping their bodies resilient for the years to come and keep them aging “gracefully”. It becomes even more important to strength train as you get older since it helps prevent falls, helps strengthen muscle/tendons, build up bone density, and many more benefits. Don’t wait. This is something that you need to do if you want to be healthy for the years to come.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you think I can help you!
