Strength training isn’t only for the fit and healthy, it can provide lots of benefits for those managing long term health conditions as well.

If you’ve received a diagnosis of conditions such as low back pain, Parkinson’s, heart disease, or osteopenia, your initial instinct might be to take a step back. However, recent research suggests that embracing weight training can not only alleviate symptoms but potentially prevent the worsening of these conditions.

Having worked in IT in London for 15 years I was made redundant in 2009. I had trained as a gym instructor whilst working and decided I would rather spend the rest of my career doing something I loved than look for another job in IT. I furthered my qualifications with a Certificate in Advanced Personal Training from the highly regarded Premier Training. Many personal trainers are generalists covering all areas of fitness but I took the decision to specialise in the over-50s and therefore went on to do a CYQ Award in Functional Training for the Independent Older Adult Level 3. My focus is on overall health rather than fitness. I believe that making small changes can have a long term positive effect on health and well-being.
