Senior Fitness Training

CERTIFIED SENIOR FITNESS SPECIALIST

What is a Senior Fitness Specialist

National Academy of Sports MedicineEvery stage of life has its challenges, and for people over the age of 55 those challenges increasingly include health and fitness. Senior Fitness Specialists, certified from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, are skilled trainers who understand the unique fitness needs of older people. Darla O’Brien has maintained a Senior Fitness Specialist certification since 2014.

4 Common Issues With Senior Fitness Training

As your body ages, you must approach exercise and fitness with a greater awareness. This is because issues you’ve never experienced before may introduce different challenges.

  1. Eyesight and hearing diminish.
  2. Balance can start to falter.
  3. Muscles lose mass and weaken.
  4. Joints can get arthritis or start to ache.

To slow age-related decline you take medication, use assistive devices such as canes or walkers, or undergo surgery. All of the above approaches can help manage the aging process, but each approach, because it does not address underlying causes, is a potential injury waiting to happen. Extensive training and experience has taught Darla to look to your history for these causes…and more. Darla will ask you the right questions, look at deep-rooted causes, and teach you the appropriate (and safe) exercises.
