Weight Training For Bone Health

HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD THAT YOU HAVE OSTEOPENIA or signs of Low Bone Density? You’re not alone!!

As we age, it's natural for our bodies to go through changes, and for women especially, one of the biggest concerns is bone health. Osteopenia and osteoporosis are conditions that affect bone density and strength, which can increase the risk of fractures and other complications. However, there's a simple yet effective solution to improve bone health and reduce the risk of fractures: strength and weight training.

At our gym, we understand the concerns of those with osteopenia and osteoporosis, and we offer a safe and supportive environment for them to train and improve their bone health. We believe that strength and weight training can be beneficial for all ages, and we want to share with you some of the benefits that come with training at our gym.

  1. Strength and weight training can help prevent osteoporosis. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, weight-bearing exercise and resistance training are two of the best ways to improve bone density and reduce the risk of fractures. This is because weight training puts stress on the bones, which stimulates the body to produce more bone tissue. Over time, this can lead to stronger, denser bones that are less prone to fracture.

  2. Strength and weight training can also improve balance, flexibility, and overall strength. This is important because falls are a common cause of fractures in older adults, and improving balance and strength can help reduce the risk of falling.

  3. Strength training can also improve joint health and reduce the risk of conditions such as arthritis, which can be debilitating for older adults.

At our gym, we understand that safety is a top priority for both men & women with osteopenia and osteoporosis. That's why we have certified personal trainers who specialise in working with these conditions. Our trainers are knowledgeable about the best exercises and techniques to improve bone health while minimising the risk of injury.
