  What are the different types of exercises?
  Strength training also called weight training burns calories and impedes bone and muscle loss. Strength training helps prevent disease, creates strength, boosts energy levels and improves mood, posture and balance.
   
  Flexibility training improves the ability to move about, by increasing the range of motion in the joints and lengthening the muscles. This assists with preventing mobility loss so that one is better able to do daily tasks. The stiffness that increases with age is greatly improved with flexibility exercises.
   
 
Cardio training also called aerobic training works the heart and lungs. The heart is a muscle and like other muscles needs to be exercised on a regular basis to keep it strong.  Cardio training increases endurance, improves blood flow, burns calories,  reduces health risks, helps manage chronic conditions and increases longevity.
 
Having energy, strength, flexibility and balance are the keys to maintaining your independence and active lifestyle as you age.

What should I expect from an exercise session? The first time we meet is for the confidential consultation. We discuss your goals and your health. I take a medical history followed by an assessment to see which exercises to plan for you.

This meeting usually takes 1 1 hours.
The next 1 hour session starts with a warm up to prepare your body for the exercises. I demonstrate all exercises and explain them competely and frequently. Not everyone is the same, so I modifying the exercises for your specific needs. We work the whole body and also do balance exercises. The last part is flexibility exercises and stretching. I answer all questions and explain everything in detail, so that you understand and learn.
