Have you noticed as you get older you body changes significantly? Have you noticed you don't have as much strength as you used to? Have you noticed your balance becomes a little off? Have you noticed you have a thicker mid section than you used to have?
Did you know for every passing year, after the age of 30, we lose approximately 0.25kgs of muscle mass, which is replaced with approximately 0.5kgs of fat. That equates to 7kgs of lost muscle and a 15kg gain in body fat!
As adults, with every passing decade we lose the ability to preserve muscle mass. Research suggests that the decline in muscle mass underlies many of the undesirable conditions that we associate with "getting old", such as osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and unwanted weight gain (to name a few).
Resistance training can increase bone density, reducing the risk of fractures and breaks as you get older. It also helps to strengthen your muscle tissues and improve your balance, which may decrease the chances of falling and fracturing your bones. Muscle tissue is critical to the maintenance of healthy blood glucose and triglyceride profiles that reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and type-2 diabetes.
This class is tailored to all fitness levels and clients are gradually introduced to exercises to progressively build strength through the use of resistance bands and weights .
This class runs for 45 minutes.
