Strength Training as We Age - Redefining Possibilities

Introduction: Aging is an inevitable part of life, but it doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our strength and vitality. At Gravity Laboratory, we believe in empowering individuals to redefine what's possible, especially as they age. In this blog post, we'll explore the transformative power of strength training and how it can unlock a world of possibilities for individuals, whether you be 35, 45, 55, 65 or beyond!

1. Embracing the Journey of Aging: As we enter our 30s and 40s, our bodies undergo natural changes, and staying active becomes more critical than ever. Many individuals in this age group may feel hesitant to embark on a fitness journey due to a sedentary lifestyle, past injuries, likely busy career and family commitments so making time for self may seem more challenging. At Gravity Laboratory, we understand these concerns and offer a safe and supportive environment where our highly certified coaches guide clients through every step of the process and we can work with you on flexible scheduling that is viable for you.

2. The Art of Small Group Personal Training: One of the cornerstones of Gravity Laboratory's success is our Small Group Personal Training ('SGPT') program. This innovative approach blends the benefits of private coaching with the camaraderie of a small group setting. With capped groups of no more than eight individuals, our clients receive personalized attention and targeted exercises that cater to their unique needs and goals. This allows us to foster a sense of community while ensuring each individual receives the support they require to thrive.

4. Prioritizing Mobility and Flexibility: As we age, joint health, soft tissue quality and mobility/flexibility become paramount for function and resiliency. Our Physiotherapy-led training incorporates mobility exercises that improve joint function and range of motion, preventing injuries and promoting longevity. We believe that being pain-free and moving well are essential components of a healthy lifestyle. And if you have benefits from an employer, the cost of these sessions are typically covered.

5. Consistency - The Key to Long-Term Success: In the quest for improved health and fitness, consistency is the primary crucial element - period. You hear people talk about motivation. Well, that is intrinsic and comes and goes. Consistency, scheduling those 3 sessions per week and just showing up is king!
