As You Age, You May See Changes in Your Body and Your Cognitive Functions.

Osteoarthritis in the knees, hips, elbows, wrists, ankles, and shoulders wears away the cushion that pads the spaces between these joints causing pain and stiffness.

One in every three Americans over the age 65 falls each year due to lack of balance. These falls now account for 87% of serious spinal and brain injuries. If you ever feel dizzy or lightheaded upon getting up, you may already be experiencing critical balance problems.

Studies have also found that aging can be responsible for substantial decline in brain tissue density in the specific areas responsible for memory, coordination, and thinking.

Muscles keep us strong, help us maintain our weight, fight the loss of bone strength, and also reduce balance issues. If you don’t get around much anymore, your muscle mass is rapidly decreasing and you are probably feeling weak and more vulnerable. The good news is that it’s never too late to reverse the signs of aging and inactivity. But, choosing a trainer experienced in working with seniors is the best way to stay safe and avoid further injuries.
