Fitness is one of those things that are important from the day we can walk, up until we take our last step. And no, the reason isn’t appearance or aesthetic related. Working out is beneficial for the body as it allows us to move around and stimulates the mind by releasing endorphins. These perks are especially beneficial as we age. The reason being is that as we get older, our bodies become weaker and our mind becomes a little bit less sharp. There is nothing wrong with that, though. These changes are all a part of life. However, they don’t need to be drastic. With the Advocare “Active Aging” senior fitness program, you can combat some of these warning signs of aging. To learn more about the program and what it entails, keep reading below.

What is the Active Aging Senior Fitness Program? 

This program is truly unique in the way it approaches fitness for the aging individual who wants to stay active, all while prioritizing safety. Everyone knows that every age group and fitness level varies, which makes this program so great. Our clients who sign up with this program will get a personalized Senior Fitness Trainer that will work with them on their strength, balance, and flexibility goals. We recommend this program for anyone who wants to be more active, but it is especially a great way to combat daily tasks that become a challenge. Your trainer will work one on one with you to develop a personalized custom workout plan that is specific to your abilities and goals. In addition, Active Aging will help improve your emotional and mental health by implementing familiar music and mind games. While these are all great aspects, our goal here at Advocare, located in Delray Beach, Florida, is for you to have fun! 

Daily Movement 

One of the main reasons our clients enroll in our program is to refrain from a sedentary lifestyle. As we get older, we are more inclined to reduce our activity and the stress we put on our bodies. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that our joints can get stiff from time to time. Getting up and doing even thirty minutes of physical activity will allow your joints to get the mobility they need. Working out can also prevent normal daily tasks from getting difficult for us to accomplish. Getting that daily movement will help keep these tasks easy and allow you to feel confident when moving around your home. 

Mental Stimulation 

Experts say that the best way to combat memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia is to keep your brain stimulated. To many people’s surprise, keeping your body active also keeps your brain active. When you exercise, your brain is releasing an abundance of endorphins, helping the brain stay sharp and healthy. Exercising with our program also gives you vital social interaction with our trainers, helping the brain even more. Many people brush off social interaction as a young person thing, but it turns out that the elderly need it just as much, if not more! This social aspect also implements a mind-body connection, which challenges the brain in more ways than one. You are focusing on how to correctly do the movement, thinking about it as you do it, and counting each time you do it. Talk about brainpower! 

If you are ready to make a change to improve your mental and physical health, then it’s time you sign up for the Active Aging senior fitness program. This program will be entirely catered to you and your needs by your personalized fitness coach. Not only does this guarantee you see progress, but it will also ensure you are having fun while working out.
