Having not exercised for years or having never exercised at all can be a large obstacle for people to overcome.
However, exercising as we get older has been shown to be one of the most valuable things to do to prevent disease and loss of movement.
Exercising is vital to a healthy, functional human body. However, the risks of injury when getting back into exercise or attempting it for the first time can be very high.
Exercises done incorrectly put your body under stress that it is not prepared for. It is important that you start exercising in a structured and progressive manner. This will not only allow your muscles to strengthen gradually, but will also allow your ligaments and tendons to develop their strength also.
I was very worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with every one else and I would be too unfit – The reality was that everything was tailored to my levels and I never felt out of my depth. I can’t believe how much my fitness has improved.
