Strength and Core Training for Enhanced Balance

At Pickering Personal Training, we prioritize the well-being of seniors like you and understand the crucial role that fitness plays in ensuring a high quality of life. Our dedicated team of experienced trainers is here to guide you through personalized fitness programs designed to enhance your overall health and significantly reduce the risk of falls.

Why Fall Prevention Matters

Falls can be a major concern for seniors, often leading to serious injuries and a decline in independence. 20% of seniors who experience a hip fracture die with in 1 year and 50% never regain their previous level of independence. However, with a strategic approach to fitness, you can greatly diminish the risk of falling and enjoy a more active, fulfilling life.

Strength and Core Training for Enhanced Balance

One of the central components of fall prevention is the improvement of balance and coordination. Our one-on-one personal training sessions are specifically tailored to strengthen your muscles and core, ultimately boosting your stability and agility. Here’s how we address it:

Muscle Strength: As we age, muscle weakness can compromise our ability to maintain balance. Our trainers will collaborate with you to build and sustain muscle strength, allowing you to stand tall and confident.

Core Stability: A strong core is paramount for balance and posture. Through targeted exercises, we will assist you in developing a sturdy core, which is essential for fall prevention.

Falling Correctly: If you do experience a fall, we can teach you how to properly land to reduce any injuries.

    Mitigating Sarcopenia for Enhanced Health

    What is Sarcopenia? Sarcopenia is the progressive loss of muscle mass, strength, and functionality that comes with advancing age. It can lead to decreased mobility, heightened frailty, and an increased risk of falls.

    Building and Sustaining Muscle Mass: Our personalized fitness programs are designed to target and reverse sarcopenia by promoting muscle growth and strength. With consistent training, you can regain the muscle mass that may have diminished over the years, leading to improved mobility and independence.

    Preventing Osteoporosis: In addition to reducing the risk of falls, the development and maintenance of muscle mass can also help prevent osteoporosis—a condition characterized by weak and brittle bones. Strong muscles provide better support for your bones, decreasing the risk of fractures.

    Our experienced trainers will closely monitor and guide you to ensure that every exercise is performed safely and effectively. We’ll customize your fitness program to cater to your unique needs, making it enjoyable and manageable while helping you achieve your fitness goals.
