The Exercise Prescription for Adults Aged 50+
November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
Most of us want to avoid muscle loss (sarcopenia), slow bone replacement (osteopenia), frailty, and a loss of balance and coordination. Why think of being older as having serious health problems, using multiple pharmaceuticals, losing independence, or having a miserable late-in-life experience? There is a way around what the medical profession dubs “the sick aging phenotype.”
Christian Liriano, a certified Functional Aging Specialist and personal trainer, presents some of the best “medicine” to delay or reverse sick aging. The medicine is strength training, he says, and it’s never too late for men or women to start lifting weights to improve mobility and strength and gain other positive health benefits. At this webinar, learn more about how to begin, and have your questions answered.
Liriano is a certified Functional Aging Specialist (FAI), Training the Older Adult (TOA) Ambassador and the founder of TrainWithChris LLC. He also studies biology at the City University of New York.
