Fit at 50
Many clients get to the age of 50 and know that they need to address their lifestyle so that they can look forward to a healthy future. What they do not always realize is what an enormous change can be achieved with regular exercise and a well designed progamme of personal training.
Most of our clients who have been through this openly admit to discovering energy levels that they have not had for many, many years, and feeling literally decades younger. Indeed the most remarkable improvements of all our clients are made in this age group.
We also have many clients over 50 who have exercised regularly but realise that they are not realising their full potential or are experiencing problems with recurring injuries. This is because they are exercising incorrectly and need professional guidance. New targets can be set, and new goals achieved that you may have thought were out of reach. You may be 50, but massive improvements to your fitness can still be made.
An initial assessment is made and a realistic programme tailored to fit your own commitments which will often include a hectic business and personal timetable. But a minimum schedule of two sessions of one hour each per week are needed to see real rewards. After a few weeks considerable improvements are usually experienced; and for most, things just keep getting better.
Our fit at 50 programmes include:
The initial assessment of fitness levels will give our trainers an idea of where the client is currently at and what progress we can make together.
Talking through what you want to achieve from training at the White Room a series of small, sensible, and achievable goals will be devised. Once reached, new goals can be set.
Using the devised core training and stretching exercises, posture and flexibility will be dramatically improved, making everyday activities easier and making those aches and pains a thing of the past.
Strengthening the 'core muscles' of the abdominals, glutes and lower back muscles is one of the best ways to rehabilitate injures and keep them away. In later life the lower back becomes a problem area, keeping the core strong will mean that won’t become a problem.
If jogging, walking or running is a hobby or something you would like to achieve but have never been fit enough to do, the White Room can help. We can plan a programme that will have you reaching your target in a safe way.
Working both upper and lower body using free weights and resistance machines, a perfectly balanced programme is achieved whilst meeting your targets.
Focusing on the whole body, sculpting and firming is essential for training over 50's. A firm body with the health benefits of fighting off osteoporosis will mean you look better, but will also provide your body with potentially life saving training.
After consulting with a White Room personal trainer, a sensible, achievable eating plan will be devised just for you that will give you extra energy and provide you with the platform to achieve your goals.
If weight loss is your goal, the White Room can help you achieve it. By integrating intelligent training whilst educating on the weight benefits of good nutrition, weight loss struggles can be a thing of the past.
As we get older, it is only natural that the muscles become stiffer. White Room trainers understand the need to adapt stretching techniques to work the muscles in a different way and increase your flexibility whilst easing muscle tension in the body.
Using intelligent resistance training, we condition the body and muscles to be stronger and to gain flexibility through using a full range of movement and specific stretches tailored to your needs and to target any areas of particular stiffness.
