The Importance Of Fitness As We Age

We’ve all heard the expression ‘move it or lose it’, but this concept becomes increasingly pressing as we get older. For individuals aged 40, 50 and beyond, a focus on building strength, fitness and functionality can be the determining factor for a good quality of life.

Specialised Training In A Safe Space.

At OMC we understand that busy gyms, and a cut and paste approach to fitness often miss the mark for many over 40 year olds who are wanting to improve or maintain their health. Instead, we create a personalised training program that is unique to you, regardless of what your health and wellness goals are.

Our state-of-the-art MedX machines, specialised trainers, and relaxed and friendly atmosphere allow us to work one-on-one with you to transform those goals into reality.

How We Address Your Changing Health Goals

As we age it’s not just our bodies that change, but often our health goals too. Below is a list of common health and wellness objectives that our clients over 40 and 50 years of age express to us. If any of these resonate, then a personal training session at OMC would be a good fit for you too.

  • Get fitter
  • Lose weight
  • Improve mobility
  • Enhance posture
  • Reduce risk of injury
  • Enjoy a better quality of life
  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Increase strength and power
  • Increase flexibility and agility
  • Improve endurance and stamina
  • Improve overall fitness and conditioning
  • Support or improve sport performance (e.g. golf swing)

Personal training that’s tailored to you and your unique health goals, giving you results without the risk of injury.

The Personal Training Difference

As we get older our health requirements, physical capabilities and fitness objectives often become more varied. Group exercise and fitness classes are rarely capable of addressing these unique factors, and we become more susceptible to injury if we’re not practising correct form and technique.

This is why it’s imperative to work under the guidance of an experienced trainer, especially as we age.

At OMC we incorporate MedX equipment with functional fitness exercises that follow your body’s natural movements. This unique approach is built into your personalised program to help restore your body’s movement in a safe and controlled way, whilst also reducing your risk of injury.

The functional fitness knowledge of our experienced trainers means your program can be designed in a way that meets you where you’re at. We then incorporate the MedX machines as these are the best way to isolate and strengthen the exact muscles needed to create a fitter, more functional body.

Our tailored, personal training approach to your health and wellbeing, is what allows us to help you increase strength, enhance posture, improve stamina, and generally provide a better quality of life.

Expert Trainers + MedX Machines = Life Changing Results!

Before starting at the Optimum Movement Centre, my body was in a place that definitely wasn't happy with me due to previous injuries that had happened over the years of my life. I'd been in several big car accidents (one where we hit a tree sideways a 80km/hr as a passenger), a bike & car accident when I was 10 years old (which left me with facial injuries), a few sporting accidents & have always had trouble with my legs where running for longer than 5 minutes has been a problem for most of my life.

Due to the combination of these things I would usually have trouble sleeping, walking, running, siting for longer than 30 minutes, most if not everyday my legs would usually be aching, numb, burning, pins & needles or just feel like they had concrete blocks attached to them.
I got to a point where I thought this was just how it was gonna be, this is how my body was going to work for the rest of my life & it was just something that I was gonna have to deal with. I know there are a lot of people out there way, way worse off than me so I just thought harden up you'll be right.

After the very first session in the Optimum Movement Centre I was pumped! I could finally see a way with the machines, care & knowledge that has been put into that place I could finally get my body to a point where I could function "normally" day to day without pain but not only that, after being in there for a few months I can see my body getting to a point where I can achieve so many new amazing things.
Even when my body has not been happy with me or I've aggravated a previous injured the recovering time is significantly shorter.

In the short time I have been at the Optimum Movement Centre I have seen a dramatic change in all areas of my life! I sleep so much better, the multiple drives to Brisbane each week no longer effect me, I can train & teach Arakan Martial Art without feeling like my body is going to give out or hit a brick wall or my spine is going to snap in half.
I really can't say enough amazing things about the way in has changed to quality of my life & would recommend it to literally everyone!! Whether you are young, old, female, male, injured, no injured it will improve your quality or life & the understanding of your own body.

Seriously give it ago you won't regret it & you'll ask yourself why you didn't try it sooner!!
