Too old to lift? No such thing!

This is one of my current clients: 84 years old, history of heart disease and cancer and getting stronger every week.

Deadlift
Don't let your age limit your potential

There are many benefits to resistance training for people of all ages, including older adults. Such benefits include:

  • Bone health - decreased risk of osteoporosis

  • Maintenance of muscle - as we age we lose muscle mass, even in the absence of chronic disease. In order to keep strong, we've got to maintain muscle mass.

  • Increased mobility and flexibilty

  • Management of blood pressure

  • Management of blood sugar and cholesterol (diabetes and heart health)

In turn, you could benefit from:

  • Increased energy levels

  • Decreased risk of falls

  • Decreased risk of chronic disease

  • Healthy life expectancy

  • Enhanced independent living

  • Increased confidence and mental well-being

But what does this really mean?

  • You feel stronger

  • You're able to put your socks on in the morning

  • You can get out of the bath

  • You can carry your shopping home

  • You can put your shopping away into cupboards (even the top ones!)

  • You can walk with friends

  • You can do the gardening

  • You can play with your grandchildren


This list could go on and everyone's goals are different, but overall the focus is on maintaining your independence and improving the quality of your life.


Please don't let your age limit your potential!
