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.

These aspects of fitness can be carried over into all sports or exercise programs if an individual is looking for a way to improve their current exercise routine. Exercises use weights, fitness bands, medicine balls, and body weight, while incorporating specific skills into strength and conditioning to help individuals target specific performance goals.
Besides improved performance, the conditioning program is an important step in injury prevention.
Proper training can reduce the incidence of injury. The only way to train for peak performance is to have a plan. The conditioning should be complementary to the demands that the individual is already engaged in. As part of a team or as an individual, this program will help you reach your fitness goals.
