Staying healthy and free of injury is essential for older adults who desire to stay independent for as long as possible. It takes good strength, balance and mobility to protect our independence from falls and related injuries. One-third of people 65 and older falls annually, and 1 out of 5 falls causes a serious injury such as head trauma, hip or other bone fracture. More than two-thirds of deaths from falls were at home and 40% of older adults receiving chronic or long-term care are due to fall injuries.

There’s nothing worse than walking out of the gym thinking welp, that was an hour of Netflix time I’ll never get back. Sure, there’s no such thing as a bad workout, but there is such thing as a great one. The good news? Every workout can feel extra satisfying with a few clever tweaks to make your gym session work harder for you.

Most of us have a ready-made excuse for not working out - I don’t have the time. The best gym in town is too far away. I’m too tired after pulling a nine-hour shift. Excuse follows excuse, and the Monday that will finally see you enter a sanctuary of fitness never seems to dawn. However, the truth is you don’t really need to be going to the gym every single day. In fact, you shouldn’t be training daily, not if you are aiming to lose a few pounds, keep a few pounds off, or simply live a little bit healthier.

Train With True
Something I can count on every day at the gym is seeing someone attempting the latest get fit quick exercise they've seen in their favorite fitness social media outlet or magazine.  Nine times out of ten they're performing the exercise incorrectly.  On top of that, they most likely have no idea WHY they're doing that particular exercise in the first place. They saw someone else doing it and thought it looked cool to try.

I came across an article today that lists 50 body weight movements that one can do anywhere. As a personal trainer, I always encourage clients, family, and friends to workout outside of the studio or gym in order to burn a few extra calories, maintain motivation, etc.

Never underestimate the value of training the basics, no matter the field or activity you're into. Your fundamentals are called that because that's precisely what they are. Don't just go back to them once in a while. See the basics in all things, no matter how advanced you are.
