Senior Balancing and Coordination Exercises

Individuals of all ages should work on balance and coordination exercises.
Seniors primarily due to muscle loss, lose the strength to perform daily activities such as picking something off the floor. Practice by balancing on one foot and bending over to pick something up. This movement can be modified by starting to pick something off a chair or bench. Once that is accomplished then the object can be laid on the ground to be picked up.

5 Reasons To Have a Personal Trainer

Time to shed the extra winter pounds and head into spring.
You might be surprised at how a personal trainer can help you get back into shape faster than working on your own.

5 Reasons to have a personal trainer:

1. You’ll Show Up
If you’re not in the mood to exercise, it’s easy to skip it. But what’s not so easy is cancelling a workout with your personal trainer.

2. You’ll Get More Out of Your Workout
You hire skilled professionals to help you with other things like car repairs, taxes, dentist, etc. Your fitness is no different – professional personal trainers have the knowledge that will save you time, money and frustration. When you hire a personal trainer, you put yourself on a fast-track to meeting your goal. Trainers know the best exercises, best equipment and best programming for their client goals. It’s what they do.

3. You Didn’t Know You Could
With your abilities and goals in mind, a personal trainer will push you more than you’d push yourself. And it’s enough to make a difference in how fit you look and feel.

4. A Confident Working Out
Hiring a personal trainer takes the guess work out of how to use the exercise equipment. With a trainer by your side, you properly perform exercises and make the most of your time —you can feel confident that you’re exercising like the pros.

5. Starting Your Lifelong Fitness
If you’ve hired the right personal trainer a funny thing may happen: You might look forward to your training sessions! The more motivated you feel to get to the gym, the closer you become to making fitness a lifelong habit.
