As we grow older several systems in the body undergo changes.  We lose lean muscle mass, our metabolic rate slows down, our ability to maintain cardiorespiratory capacity diminishes, and we lose bone density.  If we allow this to go unchecked the body will lose the ability to move and we will become limited in the things that we can do.  Clients I work with fight this trend.  I work with all my clients stave off the effects of aging through exercise and nutrition.  There are five critical areas we need to address to age successfully – nutrition, cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility.
