Time is tiking…do you want to continue down this path or prefer a new story where you have some control? Tick tock…
As well all know, aging is often associate with a reduction in ____________. Yes, basically we can fill that blank in with muscle mass, endurance, balance, strength, power, mobility, and many other things that can affect our quality of life as well as our independence. While we may have little control over some aspects of aging including things like genetics, we can influence our epigenetics to a certain point by continuing to stress our bodies! Yes, we need to continue to stress our biology for it to continue to adapt. Without any stress, everything in our biology can get weaker and or “get pruned”, with the old adage “if you don’t use it, you lose it” ringing true.
But how? Start small! If you are doing nothing now to stress your body, then doing simple things such as going on small walks (even 3-5 minutes is better than nothing), marching in place, standing more, taking the stairs, get in and out of the chair 5 times in a row, standing on your tippy toes, and many other things one can potentially do depending on your starting point. It really doesn’t have to be that complicated and we can often do this in the comfort of our own home!
Don’t know where to start? Afraid you might get hurt? One can completely understand the hesitancy to get a program going. It could start with working with a personal trainer that has the biological and psychological experience and understanding to work with a population of people who may have not had much movement in years! Let us guide you safely to help improve your strength, mobility, power, and balance so you can regain your independence to continue your journey! When would you like to start?
