The best training program from the age of 50 onwards
When you turn 50, your body may start giving you signs that you need extra maintenance. As a result of bad postures that you have dragged along the years and not taking care of yourself as you deserve it is normal that you start to hurt some part of your body.
Although we are supposed to maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout life, from the age of 50 it is essential to take care of yourself, exercise and eat a balanced diet. Because the benefits of doing sport are many and, although you may think otherwise, staying fit after 50 is not an impossible mission at all. The secret?
Finding an activity that you like and that encourages you to exercise. In Body and Mind, we help you, not only to learn a healthy training program, but we will get you to enjoy the exercise.
At Body and Mind, we will teach you that from the age of 50 it is very important to do exercises that help preserving muscles and joints. Because what is inevitable is that our body deteriorates over the years. That’s why it’s very important to stay in shape, because in this way we will help our body not to deteriorate so quickly.
So now you know it’s time to get your body going! And if it’s with others, so much the better. Since from the age of 50 it is advisable to do exercises in company. In this way, you will not see it as a training program but rather as a social activity.
And you want to meet people to do something, rather than going to exercise alone. In addition, without even realizing it, you will be exercising not only your body, but also your mind, since doing this type of exercise in company helps to free the mind and disconnect.
Walking, swimming or even yoga are some of the best activities to do from the age of 50, not only because you can do them in a group, but also because you can practice them outdoors.
Walking one hour a day will help you keep your heart active. And with yoga sessions you will tone your muscles, increase your flexibility, improve your balance and learn to disconnect from your daily routine and the stress of everyday life.
Personalized trainings in Mallorca
From the age of 50, it is normal that our body begins to lose muscle mass and that we gain more fat. If we don’t work on the muscles, we lose an average of 500 grams of muscle tissue every year. To avoid this and recover our muscles as well as not gaining weight, we recommend a daily training program that includes resistance and elasticity exercises.
In Body and Mind, we prepare a complete table of exercises to help you get in shape from the age of 50. In this way, we will ensure that you perform different exercises to train all your muscles and joints and not just that you exercise a particular part of the body.
This is one of the great advantages of having a personal trainer, since in addition to doing a complete workout, we will organize it in such a way that it will be very enjoyable for you. In addition, we will teach you how to perform each exercise correctly to avoid bad postures or the possibility of injuring yourself by forcing too much muscle or joint.
We will also keep track of all your workouts by reviewing your progress and sharing it with you. In this way, you get an idea of your progress and are even more motivated to continue with your training program.
