Gym Safety Tip for Senior Citizens

Knowledgeable training staff can be a great help for seniors who are looking to approach fitness safely

Knowledgeable training staff can be a great help for seniors who are looking to approach fitness safely. Whether you are exercising in your current gym or choosing a new gym, you can keep safety a priority. A staff member or trainer in the gym can show you how to use each machine and teach you about its safety features. Exercise should start according to your fitness level. Some seniors exercise with great enthusiasm: however, before starting a new training program or returning to physical activity, you should get an assessment to identify your current fitness level. The purpose of an assessment is to inform the trainer of all factors affecting your health, including your structural and functional status and your health history. A trainer can then set up an exercise program that suits your individual needs with exercises aimed to safely strengthen specific areas of weakness. Assessments are kept on file for every member to access. Please remember to inform the staff of any changes in your personal or emergency contact information so that the fitness facility always has your current data on file.
