The 3 essential elements to a Seniors fitness training or program:

-Flexibility – We lose flexibility as we age, but flexibility is important for even simple things like getting in and out of cars, sitting down rather than falling into a chair, getting off the ground and even putting on clothes.

-Balance and stability – Injury from falls is probably the most significant issue that can impact seniors’ quality of life.

-Strength – We lose lean muscle mass as we age, but strength training can specifically help with medical conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis.

If you are inspired to get started here a 7 simple tips to get going:

1 Just start – even walking around the kitchen a number of times to improve endurance

2 Start small – no need to run a marathon on day one

3 Be consistent – commit to doing something each day

4 Do what you enjoy – lawn bowls, ten pin bowling, bush walks, tennis, gardening, golf

5 Seek professional and specialist advice from a specialised Personal Trainer or an Exercise Physiologist to get better results and reduce the risk of injury

6 Functional exercises to help with day-to-day activities rather that isolated weight training such as biceps curls.

7 Extended warm-up and cool-down eg 5–10 min each
