Strength for Elder People - Benefits of Personal Training by Top Personal Trainer in Dubai UAE Abhinav Malhotra and Team AbhiFit

Strength for Elder People – Benefits of Personal Training

Longer & Healthier Life

Elder people and senior citizens can live a longer and healthier life with regular proper exercise and nutrition. A lot of times, the senior citizens think that taking walks and doing a little bit of stretching and other light exercises are enough for good health. They couldn’t be more wrong!

In the following video, Dubai’s top personal trainer Abhinav Malhotra is training his client who’s 60+. Age is just a number and you can live a healthy and fit life at any age!

Sarcopenia & Dynapenia

Aging is associated with physical decline that leads to weakness and even disabilities. Elder people and senior citizens often suffer from sarcopenia and dynapenia. Sarcopenia is defined as loss of muscle tissue as a natural part of the aging process. This does not include loss of muscle strength, which is defined by Dynapenia. As per research, muscle strength appears to be a critical component in maintaining physical function, mobility, and vitality in old age.

For elder people and senior citizens, lack of physical activity and sedentary lifestyle are extremely dangerous because that increases their risk of serious health conditions such as blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity, cholesterol issues, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, depression, cancer and death from any cause.

Personal Training Benefits for Elder People & Senior Citizens

Research has demonstrated that strength-training exercises have the ability to combat weakness and their debilitating consequences. Done regularly, these exercises build muscle strength and muscle mass and preserve bone density, independence and vitality with age.

In addition, strength training also has the ability to reduce the risk of loss of functionality due to weakness, joint pain, osteoporosis and the signs and symptoms of several chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and arthritis while improving sleep and reducing depression.

Many elder people and senior citizens don’t have in-depth knowledge and experience of strength training and given their age and physical decline, they shouldn’t take risks even for lifting light weights at the gym without proper guidance and support. They must have a personal trainer who can understand their overall health and fitness condition well to create their structured and progressive personal training program including exercises, nutrition, rest and recovery.

A personal trainer monitors form, execution, progression / regression of each exercise and does appropriate programming suited for that particular client in front of them. A personal trainer also gives physical and mental support as required. Personal training not only helps to avoid injuries but also makes the elder person or senior citizen more effective at doing the exercises and gaining muscle mass, strength, stamina and flexibility.
