A central misconception is the presumption that age-related decline is just a natural part of the aging process. The fact is, many age-related health effects are the same as those that accrue due to physical inactivity. Regular physical activity prolongs functional independence in older adults. It is also related to better cognitive function and reduced risk of developing dementia. Qualified exercise professionals who understand the impacts of regular physical activity training among older adults can be important sources of motivation and guidance for successful aging. 

NFR offers one-on-one training and group exercise classes for older adults. In order to achieve optimal health benefits and to improve functional abilities, adults aged 65 years and older should accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic physical activity per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more. It is also beneficial to add muscle- and bone-strengthening activities using major muscle groups, at least 2 days per week. Those with poor mobility should perform physical activities to enhance balance and to prevent falls and other injuries. More daily physical activities provide greater health benefits.

We ensure that you are working in a safe environment in order to achieve your needs and goals, while helping you with any contraindications that you may have.

Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
