Group Fitness Classes for the over 55 year olds
The team at The Lyttle Difference have developed a program to support your goals specifically for those 55 and over.
So if you’re ready to slow the ageing clock, increase your independence through free movement and slow the inevitable decay of your youth, you’re in luck. This can be done, and we know how.
How much better would you feel, move and live if once, twice a week you actively worked towards increasing:
- Bone density
- Active tissue mass
- Immune system
- Cognitive and recall function
- Hand-eye coordination and much much more.
And what about then decreasing:
- Blood pressure
- Unhealthy fat
- Chances of Diabetes
- Your dependency on walkers, hand rails etc.
You see there are two types of ageing:
Every year you have a birthday and get a year older.
The bad news: This ageing is so far unavoidable. Every year you will gain an extra candle on your cake, even if you don’t tell anyone.
The good news: It has nothing to do with who you are other than when your senior discounts kick in.
This happens at whatever pace your body is worn down.
The bad news: with unhealthy choices, this can age faster than your actual age. Just because you have a 60 year old body, you could have the health of an 80 year old.
The good news: this can be slowed down, and even reversed to a degree. By making better choices, getting active, eating mineral rich foods, and losing any unnecessary fat can drastically change your biological age.
Why It Works:
Countless studies have shown the benefits of resistance training.
Your internal workings: Starting at about age 40, your metabolism slows by roughly 5% each decade. By age 50, you’ll have gained about 6kg of fat and lost 3kg of important muscle (assuming you maintained your current lifestyle)
Lifting weights counteracts this decline, boosting your metabolism by about 7%, which also burns about 100 extra calories a day. Not to mention the workouts themselves have an after burn effect, which burns even more calories and fat.
A recent study found that women over 55, who strength-trained, kept their metabolism revved about 2 hours post workout, for a bonus burn of about 130 calories. Plus, exercise promotes the conversion of testosterone to estrogen in muscles, so you maintain higher estrogen levels, which helps keep midlife belly fat at bay.
That’s good news for men and women, and we have only scratched the surface of weight management and anti-ageing.
Think of the benefits to arthritis, your leg strength increasing mobility, bone density, diabetes prevention, energy levels…. And even your sex life.
