If you are 40 years of age or older you probably have thought about how you are aging. We also have thought about aging and have focused a very large part of our training program on slowing or completely stopping the effects of physical aging with clients who are 40 and older for the last 20 years. Our main objective is to help people maintain the highest quality of life they can for as long as possible. We find talking about aging is not the most comfortable topic to talk about. But, I'm determine to have this conversation with as many people as I possibly can. We have many answers to your questions.
1. Why do my joints hurt?
2. Why my muscle tone isn't firm?
3. Why am I gaining weight?
4. Why are my shoulders rounding?

6. Why do I get so tired easly?
7. Why is my skin sagging?

Every person should understand how their body ages and why.

Alternative Fitness Concepts programs are based upon 4 pillars. One of the 4 pillars is Mobility Before Strength which means we fix mobility issues first and then build strenth upon it. In order to maximize results you need to be able to move through the full movement of any exercise. If you start building strength before you can go through a complete movement you are not going to receive the best results and you will increase your chances of an injury.
What we see on a daily basis are people going into the gym that lack mobility doing pushups, bench presses, or squats. They actually are building strength upon a body which doesn't move well. To solve this, in the beginning of every workout we included 6 mobility exercises. These mobility exercises can be completed by all fitness levels, and will also show us the areas which lack flexibility. If you are looking for the very best results from your workouts you must first have a sound plan to improve your mobility. This is one of the cornerstones of AFC's Life training program. Mobility before strength.
