The Benefits of Strength Training for Older Adults

As an ageing population continues to pile pressure on Britain’s health care system, it’s increasingly important to get older people more active to enable them to lead happier, healthier and more independent lives in their later years – with strength training able to play an important role in this.
 
According to the latest report from the Office for National Statistics, it’s predicted that, in 50 years’ time, there will be an extra 8.6 million people aged 65 and above in the UK; a population around the size of London. With obesity levels on the rise too amongst Western populations, which exacerbates frailty, it’s no surprise then that the NHS is focused on ‘prevention’ to sustain services moving forward. A large part of this is helping older people to get moving more and fight the effects of ageing which cause our muscles to deteriorate over time.
