Training for Older Women

There are so many advantages to training in your latter years as a lady, yet many are nervous about whether it is sensible. If there is one thing The Hogarth stands for it is the value of training seniors.

By the time women have reached their later years they have had to navigate the menopause, potentially childbirth and the ebbs and flows of menstruation. On top of that comes the natural decelerating with age. Exercise has many benefits that will help you live a stronger, healthier and more fulfilling life so lets have a look at how we can help.

Working out as a mum by Personal Trainer Nicole

Hogarth Personal Trainer, Nicole Seidemann writes about her personal experience and challenges with exericising as a mum of 4, along with helpful tips and strategies to navigating this new challenge of keeping up with your training.

If you are too tired because you were up three times in the night, then you are too tired and really in no shape to do a big workout in the gym. But does that mean we end up doing nothing? No. We just need to change our way of thinking and what we define or classify as exercising or working out!

Women's Foot Health

Feet can be the source of problems and solutions alike in the body. How they function in isolation, and in relation to the rest of your body when you are walking, running, lunging, and so on.

Wearing shoes that restrict your feet is a big contributor to bunions, affecting around 10 million women in the UK, amongst other foot and whole body issues. This sequence can help combat the effects of restrictive shoes, and help mitigate problems before they start.

Try these exercises along with Hogarth Personal Trainer, Katie Dutton, to test your foot strength and mobility. Good foot and ankle physical health is an essential part of a well rounded exercise routine!
