The 5 components of Senior Fitness at Fredericksburg Fitness Studio include:
- Aerobic Fitness – stimulates the cardiovascular system to improve strength in the heart, circulation of oxygen in the blood, build lung capacity, and maintain healthy weight and blood pressure
- Muscular Fitness – stimulates growth of bone and muscle
- Flexibility – alleviates stiffness, prevents injuries, improves balance and coordination, and makes it easier to engage in daily activities
- Balance – helps prevent falls and broken bones
- Relaxation – helps bring heart rate back to a resting state, as the body cleanses itself of toxins, also relieving stress.
