Personal Trainer Overview
In my personal training practice and fitness experience it became very clear to me that most older adults had no idea what they should be doing to maintain a level of physical fitness. Maintaining personal independence was extremely important to them as they got older, but the question was how could they get that done? I resolved to develop a fitness program for older adults that would provide them with the basic fitness knowledge and exercise skills needed to live a physically active healthy lifestyle.
The goal of every older adult is to abandon your sedentary lifestyle and to achieve a healthy body through healthy eating and exercise. Changing your behavior toward a physically active healthy lifestyle will be done in small steps. You are taking action. Congratulations!
