Over 40 fitness and health
If you have been searching for a personal trainer who will look after you, well done you have found me. Oh by the way I’m aged 46 and have been actively training myself for over 25 years and have been part of the fitness industry as a trainer for 8. So read on and ill educate you on what I value should you choose to hire me as your trainer.
Fitness and Health .Well this is where it should all start for every one and since were are both now grownups I’ll touch on this one first. As an active trainer my priorities have certainly changed from my younger days. Unfortunately I’m no longer bullet proof (if I ever was) and need that little bit longer to recover from both exercise and whatever the day brings. for me now its about staying fit, have some strength and above all, maintain my health moving forward.
Movement. My priority now is getting you to move better in allowing all the other elements such as resistance training , walking/running and core work in complimenting your Fitness and health. But first you have to be pain free. In order to feel and move better we all need to do the work that will help us achieve the results we are after. It should be the reason why you are working with a personal trainer. They should be able to get you there in a safe and professional manner and given my previous experience and skill set I guess I’m ready to look after you. For example my current go to exercises can both add strength and allow you to move better. My initial choices here are the humble Kettlebell and Bodyweight exercises (systems) I successfully use as they promote proper technique before any barbell work. Firstly its about moving better, pain free.
Appropriate approach – As we age the life knocks we have taken over time have all added up and for some it’s a bit of a struggle to get the body performing as it used to. Whether it is due to an old sports injury or simply you let yourself go,with smart programming you should not be limited too much if making the choice to get in shape and for some continue to look after yourself. Remember you are never too old to get your fitness, health and vitality going again!
Recovery – It’s all about recovery once we hit 40! no big surprises here. This is where we need to be fair dinkum and not over indulge like we used too. yeah I know, the body does slow down and recovery seems to be somewhat lacking. This is where you need to take a look at your current situation and make the necessary adjustment/s in order to not disadvantage yourself and continue to have an active lifestyle. For some it could be as simple as taking up a fitness and health program and for others it a matter of limiting their alcohol consumption. It depends on you. It always has.
Nutritional requirements – For some of us we are no longer able to process the foods we once used to indulge in. This does not mean we have to totally give up on the yummy foods. It’s just a matter of limiting your choices on these types of food stuff and allow yourself to take in an all over healthy eating program with greater variety and quality foods. Once we make these small changes you are still able to provide your body with the proper nutrients and energy to get on with your day, both healthy and keep yourself lean.
Feeling better – Well this is why you are looking me up right? With a comprehensive program this is the bottom line. Feel better by becoming stronger, fitter and become more active. Or should I say regain that activity you once had. The bottom line with any program in my opinion is to actually feel better, not broken.
As most things in life a balanced approach is all you need. Focusing on your fitness, strength and nutrition along with a more active lifestyle are enough to get you there. It’s all about being consistent in everyday life and not chucking in the towel because you are too old.
Take action now and get your movement and energy back with an experienced and professional trainer.
