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!


I have been going to the Optimum Movement Centre for 10 weeks and under the guidance of their professional trainers have seen a vast improvement in my body. I was involved in an accident that resulted in a chronic injury to my back and even after years of therapy I would still have to spend 30mins every morning stretching so that I was able to get out of bed in the morning. I was restricted in movement and not able to lift anything over 10kgs. Having the back injury and being in constant pain took a strain on my job and held me back from fully participating in Arakan Martial Arts.
Going to OMC has helped me in many ways, I have increased energy levels and have become more flexible with reduced pain in my back. I highly recommend the Optimum Movement Centre to anyone.
