It doesn't matter what your age is, you are aging! Why strength training?
Strength Training...

Resistance training, by definition, is the process of challenging a skeletal muscle with an unaccustomed stimulus (or load) so that certain muscle tissue adaptations occur.  This results in increased muscle force, strength and often, mass.  Generally, resistance training should be rhythmical, performed at a slow to moderate speed, involve a full range of motion, and not interfere with breathing.

There are many ways adults can do resistance training.  The equipment can vary from ones own body weight to more complex pneumatic selectorized machines.  Machine based training provides maximum safety and ease in terms of establishing the correct technique to work the desired muscle group. 

Conversely, fee weights are relatively inexpensive, easily accessible and may provide further beneficial adaptations for coordination and balance.  Additionally, dynamic weight training techniques can be utilized to more closely mirror our activities of daily living. These free-weight movements require contracting the muscles against an object (or resistance) through space.

Please note, that the properly designed strength training program, will take into account your personal and specific daily activities.  By doing so, you develop strength to make the things you do everyday, easier.

From lifting children or grandchildren, to carrying groceries, a properly designed and executed strength training program can assist each of us with the activities we must, or like, to do.

Various research studies have quantified and documented how extremely effective strength training can be.  Strength increases of 80% and higher have been documented in participants of 80 and 90 years of age.  Just think what it can do for you!

We know it's never too late to get stronger, so let's get at it!
