FITNESS TESTING & REHABILITATION
Our goal at blisscare®australia Health & Wellness Fitness Centre is to provide an effective, clinically supervised, total body workout for users of all fitness and health levels.
Physical activity is now viewed as a crucial part of maintaining the quality of life for the senior population. Regular, appropriate exercise will ensure the ability to function well into our latter years and can also prevent and treat some illnesses, not to mention the positive mental health support.
It is also just as important to have equipment that is specifically designed for safety and easy of use. Seniors require easy access and easily programmed machines that require very little movement to adjust.
WHY IS SENIOR EXERCISE SO IMPORTANT?
The amount of muscular mass decreases about 40% by the age of 70 and a significant decrease can be seen after 50 years of age. Periods of inactivity due to bed rest can greatly exacerbate the problem with some seniors experiences a lot of 3-5% per day in the first week of bedrest. Muscle weakness is the single most common reason for avoidable falls and can greatly affect quality of life and mobility for seniors.
