Why Older Adults Should Hire Personal Trainers

online personal trainerIt’s never too late to get fit and a recent Express.com article told the story of a 73-year old British man who is renowned as England’s oldest personal trainer. His name is Eddy Diget and he thinks that older adults should stay as physically active as their younger counterparts. He believes that the 50s and 60s are prime time for making personal fitness a priority. People who are older often have more free time, which means that they may take time out of their days to work with personal trainers. When they do, they access a plethora of impressive health and wellness benefits.

Benefits of Working with a Personal Trainer

As we age, we need to get exercise which to remain healthy, energized and as independent as we can be. According to the official National Health Service website, adults over 65 spend ten hours per day or more lying down or sitting down. Lack of personal fitness may lead to weight gain, heart problems, falls and earlier death compared with the rest of the UK population. When you work with a personal trainer, you’ll learn exercise techniques that tone your muscles, raise your heart rate and build endurance and agility. You’ll also burn calories and access endorphins (feel-good hormones), which promote emotional stability.

You’ll Learn Age-appropriate Exercises

Older men and women need to do exercise that is safe for their bodies, which may be more fragile. A personal trainer will be able to recommend the right exercise and then monitor your performance. For example, a personal trainer might stand by your side and cheer you on as you ride a recumbent stationary bicycle, which provides lower back support and is easy to get on and off of. These recumbent bikes are also superb choices for home workouts without a personal trainer. Other age-appropriate exercises for seniors include workouts with light weights, such as dumbbells, and restorative Yoga and Pilates.

You Will Get Quicker Results

According to The National Register of Personal Trainers website, personal trainers are able to help clients achieve fitness goals faster. Personal trainers are experts at boosting the motivation of the men and women that they work with. When you sign on with a personal trainer, you’ll know that your trainer is waiting for you before you hit the gym. This will make it much easier get psyched up for your workouts. Also, personal trainers are able to help their clients with rehabilitation after injuries. They also help clients to improve at preferred sports, from golf to restorative yoga and beyond.

You’ll Build a Relationship with Your Trainer

One other wonderful benefit of choosing to get fit with the help of a personal trainer is that you’ll make a new friend who really cares about your health and well-being. Personal trainers are results-oriented. They gain fulfillment from helping their clients to achieve their fitness goals. They want to make clients look better and feel better.
