Boulder, Colorado (PressExposure) February 25, 2014 -- Enthusiastic Boulder exercisers may already think they have the active aging key. Dozens of recent research can enhance the consistent exerciser's results claims Debra Atkinson. Atkinson, who presents for IDEA Health and Fitness Association and the International Council on Active Aging, will appear at RallySport Boulder Saturday, March 8 at 11am.
The presentation, open to members and guests of RallySport by RSVP will cover a dozen recent studies and reveal what they mean to your exercise routine today. Updates on exercise, nutrition and cognitive ways to benefit during exercise with small changes will be included.
"Balance, a key concern for those in latter decades is easier than ever to achieve," stated Atkinson.
"Once believed to be the fountain of youth, now research has actually proven that for brain health and cellular level regeneration, exercise truly is all that," she shared.
Atkinson is a 30 year fitness industry veteran, prior Senior Lecturer in Kinesiology at Iowa State University and Personal Training Director at a multisite club in Ames, Iowa. Her recent book Navigate Fitness After 50: Your GPS For Choosing Programs and Professionals You Can Trust provides the boomer and beyond crowd a list of questions and considerations for making informed decisions about exercise and programming.
The fact that of 251,000+ personal trainers that exist, in a field growing faster than most according to the US Bureau of Labor, a large percent are not certified even though they claim to be. Older adults are less resilient and have a greater need to be in the hands of credible and qualified professionals worth the investment. Atkinson promotes her book as a resource to empower older adults.
"It's designed to empower them as they make a decision about who to trust for health and fitness information. There are a lot of qualified experts out there, but it's hard to know what to ask to know for sure."
