Are you looking for a Personal Trainer for seniors?
This short guide will help you pick the right one.
Did you know that not every Personal Trainer is qualified to work with seniors? In fact seniors are considered a ‘specialist population’ in the world of personal training. This is because seniors have specialist needs that the rest of the population don’t necessarily have, meaning that the Trainer you choose to work with should not only be qualified to work with seniors, but also be experienced in working with this demographic.
For example many seniors have had a hip replacement and will not be able to do certain exercises. Many will suffer with conditions such as Osteoporosis or Diabetes. Even if you are healthy, as you age your body changes and fitness needs to be approached in a different way. A Personal Trainer who specialises in working with older people will understand this and will know how to work effectively with you.
Choosing an expert in this way ensures your safety and will also help you to achieve the results you are looking for, whether you are planning to increase your fitness so that you get less out of breath, strengthen your muscles, stay mobile, reduce aches and pains or even train for a race!
Most seniors are looking for a combination of the above and a Personal Trainer for seniors will understand how to create a workout which combines all these elements in a safe and effective way.
Personal Trainers for Seniors – Personality Matters!
Once you have found a Trainer that has the right qualifications you need to make sure that you can work with them. You will need to feel comfortable taking instruction from this person. For some people training with someone who is much younger than they are can be a challenge.
Think about what you are looking for in a Personal Trainer and make a list. Then go ahead and interview some Trainers. You can always do a trial session before committing to buying a fitness package, in fact we recommend that you always do a trial to see if it’s a fit in practice!
A good Personal Trainer for seniors will make you feel comfortable. Even if you have some hesitancy about putting your health in the hands of another, by the end of the session you should feel more confident. Share your concerns with your potential Trainer. A professional Personal Trainer for seniors will always listen and be pleased to answer your concerns and alleviate any worries you may have.
