Being involved in group exercise programs tailored to the needs of older adults is one aspect of attending regular classes with an exercise physiologist. Exercise not only helps to maintain muscle strength, bone integrity, and slow the progression of arthritis but can also stem the development of metabolic disease. Along with exercise, diets high in long chain-omega 3 fats and antioxidants can improve cognition and memory retention. We know that as you get older you might feel that you already know everything there is to know about food or feel that you are too old to benefit from exercise. We know this is not the case and that you will benefit from regular support and social engagement with exercise along with our nourishing food.
One person is diagnosed with diabetes every 5 minutes, totaling 280 new people every day. Approximately 1.7 million people in Australia have diagnosed diabetes and there are many more that do not know they have the disease. It is a silent pandemic but can be reversible with diet and exercise. Research has documented that reducing energy intake and stimulating muscles through aerobic and resistance exercise can lower blood glucose levels and improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin. There are many approaches to reducing the energy density of the diet and our dietitians know how to navigate the research and decide on the most appropriate approach for you. Exercise physiologists are well aware of the importance of not only aerobic exercise but also weight resistance training when it comes to diabetes management. Most programs available are not individually tailored nor do trainers have the knowledge about the appropriate management of health conditions such as diabetes. This is where these exercise specialists together with our dietitians can better manage your health and put you on the right path to sustainable health. Contact us today.
