Physical Fitness in 40′s, Pays Major Dividends in 60′s

Posted in: Uncategorized

In a recent article by Steven Reinberg he examines studies that suggest better health behaviors in your 40′s will reduce the chance of risk in your 60′s.

“Incorporating exercise and regular physical activity in one’s day-to-day routine is important to improve fitness and lower risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases in older age,” said lead researcher Dr. Ambarish Pandey. He is a cardiology fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise a week. Pandey said an exercise routine should include aerobic exercise (such as jogging, swimming, walking or biking), plus strengthening exercise (such as free weights or strength-training machines).

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of long-term disability, Pandey noted. Most strokes occur when a blood clot blocks a blood vessel in the brain, cutting off blood and oxygen. This causes brain cells to die and can leave permanent disability. Pandey speculated that exercise might help prevent stroke by keeping blood vessels healthier and lowering inflammation that can affect their function.

At Titus, we aim to curb such detrimental health factors in the aging population. The good news is these diseases can be managed or prevented, and the costs involved can be mitigated. WorkStrong’s comprehensive Education, Engagement and Adherence program is an innovative solution designed to “bend the trend.”

The WorkStrong training program is a specialized intervention model designed for all levels of employees.  The programs are designed by Titus Sports Academy, and are based on the sports performance training principles and techniques used at the Olympic and professional levels.  Our programming follows the premise of the body having five Physical Qualities that must be trained simultaneously to achieve a continuous and balanced progression to optimal physical development.  Every training session includes the following components of fitness and performance training to promote efficient and effective movement in these areas in particular; flexibility, strength, speed, agility and endurance.
