Nutrition For Seniors
Some people have the wrong impression of diets appropriate for senior citizens. Unless your physician has advised specific dietary restrictions due to a medical condition, you can benefit from a wide range of nutritious foods. Proper nutrition is one of the most important keys to good health.
There is nutrition in each food group that you need in your daily diet. Dairy products, protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Each food group contributes something essential to your health.
When planning your diet, do not forget water. Water keeps you refreshed , hydrated and helps your digestive system stay a healthy. Unless your physician has a different recommendation, eat three meals every day.

Seniors Can Live Healthy, Active Lives
Growing older does not mean the end of a healthy, active life. Your golden years can be filled with many wonderful experiences, happiness, and good health. An easy way to start is to assess your lifestyle habits and decide on changes that should be made. You can thoroughly enjoy this stage of your life.
If you are not sure where to start, or if you need some assistance, you can contact a home health agency or a community center that offers senior services. There are many people willing to offer help and advice. You can enjoy good health and good times during this exciting phase of your life.
Designing and implementing exercise programs for older adults requires a unique approach, one that addresses individuals' needs and abilities. Although many people remain relatively healthy and fit throughout, others experience a decline in health, fitness and functioning.
My approach adds focus on functional training and utilization of several principles to help develop safe and effective exercise programs for older adults.
I start by gathering information from my clients to combine with my initial screening and assessments. This information is used as a guide for planning an effective program that meets their needs and goals.
Different types of activity can affect various dimensions of physical functioning. In addition to applying exercise principles, I also utilize national guidelines and recommendations that address the specific needs of older adults. Each program will include appropriate aerobic endurance, strength training, flexibility, balance and mobility exercises.
Participating in a well-rounded physical fitness program may help older adults maintain their independence well into their later years.
"Fitness is my lifestyle. I have been in the fitness arena for over twenty years and have had my
share of up and down weight loss and gain. I know I haven't been alone in my quest to maintain a
healthy weight. Nearly two thirds of US adults are overweight. Market research survey show the
number of people who said, "I would like to lose 20 pounds" jumped from 54 percent in 1965 to 61 percent in 2005. That's the year I started my fitness business. I wanted to help others who were struggling to keep the weight off."
Most of us can look back and realize how we gained the excess weight, but the problem is we haven't figured out how to lose it. We tried the diets, we bought the DVD's and we purchased the exercise equipment from the infomercials. We even joined the local gym. Still we can't seem to make those pounds come off and stay off. Maybe it's time to admit, we just need help.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?
When I can help a client reach their goal and I see how pleased they are with their success, it is very rewarding.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a personal trainer?
I would tell them, if you need help getting fit and eating healthy, hire a professional. Hire someone that is currently certified from an organization, such as, the International Sport Science Association (ISSA). ISSA Certified Specialists, Coaches and Trainers keep abreast of new developments in health and fitness. We must earn our certification renewal every two years. I am fully qualified to create a personalized exercise and nutritional program that is right for each individual. You cannot use a cookie cutter model and think it will fit everyone. Our bodies, our metabolism, our age and strength are all different. In addition, make sure your trainer is a good listener.
What is included in your personalized fitness program?
Every client who hires me as their personal trainer will receive the following: a free fitness phone consultation, nutritional meal planning assistance, they learn proper breathing and stretching technique, they learn to safely use weights and fitness equipment, each receives one on one fitness coaching and will participate in various fitness activities to prevent boredom. In addition, my clients start to look their best and feel good about themselves.
