As a trainer in my 60s, I find it refreshing that there are so many others in my age range, and older, that refuse to just to let themselves go. I love my job! I have always enjoyed fitness, but I find it especially rewarding to help to inspire women, babyboomers & seniors to stay active. As women get into their 50s, they sometimes start having balance issues. It may not be very apparent at the start, but it is a little more noticable to them as time goes on.

Last year I attended this workshop in Orlando. I have been training the active aging for the past 5 years. This workshop taught me how the BOSU® Balance Trainer can provide assistance, resistance, cushioning and stimulus to amplify the effect for this important market of exercisers.

I was excited to read another article this month by Wayne Westcott, Ph.D., in the 2nd. Quarter issue of ACSM Certified News about the benefits of resistance exercise for older adults and elderly individuals.
If you play a winter sport like hockey or football...any sport where you have much of the summer off...you know that after taking a few weeks off at season's end, it's time to start thinking about some sort of off-season training to prepare your body for the new season. If you have kids, you may even consider sending them to sports camps. They are great, no question, but they can be very expensive and often time comsuming.
TPI philosophy of the swing: “We don't believe there is one way to swing a club. We believe there are infinite numbers of ways to swing a club, but we also believe that there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club, and it's based on what they can physically do.”

Resistance Band Training can help you look better, feel better, and move better so, ultimately, you can live better. “big claims from a 'simple rubber resistance band.'Yes, whether you want to get stronger, faster, lighter, leaner or more mobile, improve your balance or your back-hand, Resistance Bands are the ultimate functional training tool.
Do you BOSU? You should…it’s kind of cool and it could be what your routine is missing. Many people tend toward the same fitness routines of lifting weights or hop on a treadmill and go home. If that’s you then give yourself a pat on the back…you’re doing something good for your body and you’re improving your health. But, there’s so much more you can do.
