Personal Trainer for Seniors

Personal Training for Seniors and Older Adults Program.  Everyday we work hard for the seniors in Alexandria VA to help them move better and live their life without limitations.  Whether your goals are combating arthritis through joint distraction to preventing bone loss through functional strength training, we are going to build an age-appropriate program for you.  We help clients improve aerobic capacity, increase engagement with neuromuscular activation, and build strength through compound movement patterns.

This articles highlights some of our older adult clients and includes their comments on what they had to say about their custom, one-on-one personal training programs.

Senior Fitness Assessment For Senior Exercises

At Sand & Steel, the majority of my clients are seniors in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. Most people start feeling the effects of aging in their mid-thirties, but by age 50 they really start to notice a change.  As an older adult, it is to lose weight, injuries heal slower, and energy levels generally decline. If you are going to be working with clients in this age population, you’ll need to know how to perform a senior fitness assessment.  Here’s how it should be done.
