Physical Fitness For Older Adults

The truth is people are living longer and the unique population of age 65  and older is rapidly increasing. Despite this, statistics in the United States indicate that few older  adults engage in physical activity on a regular basis. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that only thirty one percent of people aged 65 to 74 years participate in 20 minutes of moderate physical activity three or more times a week.

An even smaller percentage, 16 percent, report engaging in 30 minutes of moderate activity five or more days a week. Moreover, adults aged 75 and older are even less physically active.

Physical activity has great value in preserving functional capacity and reducing disease and physical frailty in later years. This makes physical activity programs for older adults especially important. 

However, most experts agree that specialized training is needed from fitness professionals who study, develop and implement personalized physical activity programs for older adults. 

According to this definition, physical activity encompasses exercise performed for the improvement of health and fitness, activities of daily living, sports, dance, work, and play. 

Physical activity influences all aspects of health and well-being in the older adult population and the aging process in general.


Designing and implementing exercise programs for older adults requires a unique approach, one that addresses individuals' needs and abilities. Although many people remain relatively healthy and fit throughout, others experience a decline in health, fitness and functioning.

My approach adds focus on functional training and utilization of several principles to help develop safe and effective exercise programs for older adults. 

I start by gathering information from my clients to combine with my initial screening and assessments. This information is used as a guide for planning an effective program that meets their needs and goals.  

Different types of activity can affect various dimensions of physical functioning. In addition to applying exercise principles, I also utilize national guidelines and recommendations that address the specific needs of older adults.

Each program will include appropriate aerobic endurance, strength training, flexibility, balance and mobility exercises.   

Participating in a well-rounded physical fitness program may help older adults maintain their independence well into their later years. fitness trainer seniors
