Bone and Balance Training
We can't stay 21 forever, unfortunately. But we don't have to age as fast as the years suggest.
As we age, our bodies lose the strength of the muscles and bones, we lose balance and start to lose proprioception. These physical declines can be linked to an increase in falls and subsequent bone fractures. Not only has the bone broken, but research shows that confidence is broken, leading to anxiety and depression.
What research has also shown us is that we are able to slow the effects of ageing through appropriate exercise and diet.
50 really can be the new 40, 60 the new 50, even 80 can be the new 65!
Appropriate exercises on a daily basis, involving strength, flexibility and aerobic fitness has consistently been shown to improve strength of bone and muscle and significantly reduce the rate of falls.
At Bodytrack, our Exercise Physiologists have designed programs that specifically target balance and overall body strength through a combination of weight bearing and non weight bearing exercise.
