Special Populations, Ageing and Diseases
Fitness is the path wherein all people, regardless of their previous physical state can find that movement helps them to feel more energetic and pain-free. According to the CSO (Central Statistics Office Ireland,) life expectancy for the average Irish male is 78.3 years and female is 82.7. Since the first average was calculated in 1926 this represents a staggering increase of 36.4% for men and 42.8% for women. What’s more is that it has risen nearly 2% in the last ten years! This means that as we live longer more people will have a heightened interest in maintaining their quality of life.
However, just because we are living longer does not necessarily mean that we will live without challenges, including diseases. Exercise protocols, when done in compliance with medical guidelines, can help manage symptoms, boost mood, improve function and maintain healthy conditions. It is of vital importance, that if you are suffering from a disease and want to improve your health that you seek a qualified personal trainer, adept at working with your medical team. We at New You seek to set a standard of excellence in the care with which we design and implement the training protocol that is right for you.
