Clinical Strength Training using progressive resistance exercise interventions can help you remain mobile, increasing muscle strength and bone density. As we grow older, muscle strength begins to diminish by our thirties. Physically inactive people can lose between 3% to 5% of their muscle mass each decade after age 30. Even if you are physically active, you will still experience some degree of muscle loss. This loss of muscle mass decreases both strength and mobility as well as making it harder to maintain a healthy weight. Loss of muscle mass increases at an even faster rate somewhere between age 65 and 80 increasing the likelihood of falls and fractures in older adults.
Preventive Health Initiative is now offering clinical strength training in our private Nashville office. A health professional will work either one-on-one or with you and a friend or spouse to increase muscle mass in all areas of your body to increase functional strength and mobility. This will allow you to continue enjoying life to the fullest extent, maintaining activities of daily living for as long as possible. In addition, there's plenty of other health benefits besides strength and mobility. You'll enjoy an increased metabolism which will aid in maintaining a healthy weight. You'll enjoy more energy and better mood. You'll enjoy improved cardiovascular health. You may never need or be able to stop cholesterol and blood pressure medication. A great side effect of this intervention is you'll look better too! Your skin will get tighter with less sagging. You'll simply look more vibrant and healthy!
These goals are really not that difficult to achieve once you understand the basics. You can receive professional training for as long as you need in our office but our goal is to provide the education necessary for you to be able to continue on your own for the rest of your life. Usually, most people understand quickly that it's the consistency that counts versus amount of time spent on the activity. During clinical strength training, counseling and education from a health professional is provided for the entire length of the session. Ask as many questions as you like.
This intervention is for all ages, from teens to the 90's. Everyone can benefit!
