Tony is my newest client. He is quite happy for me to tell you that he is a 75 year old widower. He decided he needed to work to improve his fitness levels when he noticed that he had some balance issues and was nervous about taking walks outside. He had always gone for walks when his wife was alive and wants to be able to go outside without worrying.
So we have been working on buidling his strength levels, particularly in legs and core to enable him to have more control over his balance.
(As we age, our sense of balance naturally deteriorates, and we can compensate by increasing our muscle strength, giving us the ability to recover better from little stumbles etc. )
Tony has already begun to notice differences in his ability to get around the house and between the supermarket and his car with more confidence. He is looking forward to building up his walking distance outside (with me by his side initially) with the possibility of joining a walking group and increasing his social circle.
