What would you do with more energy?
“MORE ENERGY WASN’T THE GOAL, BUT THAT’S WHAT WE ACHIEVED”
I met Richard in a previous gym, in a previous job. After leaving this position Richard continued working with personal trainers in that gym, and we lost contact. A few years later we are back in touch again, and Richard has been working with me for a year since coming to the studio.
Although we have an excellent relationship already, it is good to hear that Richard could draw upon the good experience he had in our previous training to motivate him to see me in this new environment. We have been working on weight loss, strength, and perhaps the most important goal: managing back pain.
Hearing Richard talk about his reduction in back pain since starting our training again and the improvement in his mobility is great, and as well as this we have also been able to increase his energy levels. Richard tells me that his age gets in the way of his fitness (something I regularly argue against) and an increase in energy is a goal that I am pleased about!
Improved energy is an often overlooked result of training properly, and is a good sign that you are improving your fitness levels. Improved sleep, increased energy, and reduced levels of stress are all key indicators that we are starting to improve our lean mass, and reducing body fat.
Fitness is not age related. You should expect to see improvements in your fitness at any age and regular strength training is crucial to maintaining good energy levels, and retaining that important lean mass we need to feel fit.
Recently we have added cardiovascular endurance to the training programme, and Richard has been working on his 2000m Row. We are now aiming for 2500m.
