STRENGTH TRAINING IMPROVES HEALTH OVER 60

Redefine Aging Through Strength

SuperSlow high-intensity strength training can slow aging and lead to a healthier, more active life after age 60. At CityWide SuperSlow, 60 percent of our clients are age 60 or older.

Muscle loss begins as early as age 30 and accelerates in our 50s and again after age 60. By age 70, sarcopenia will have destroyed 1/3 of our remaining strength.  Sarcopenia, the natural loss of muscle mass from aging, recently was classified as a disease. This loss of muscle leads to a downward spiral of loss of physical abilities, the risk of falling, osteoporosis, and many chronic diseases. Signs of aging can be prevented (or reversed) with effective strength training. Strong muscles can help prevent heart disease, cognitive decline, and many cancers. Resistance training can help manage or eliminate back and joint pain, arthritic pain, and conditions resulting from metabolic syndrome.  

It’s especially important to build and maintain muscle as you age, and more so, you need to train SAFELY.  SuperSlow weight training is ideal for older people because it reduces your risk of injury by going slowly through the exercises.  Your certified personal trainers will coach you through each session, focusing on form and speed. The SuperSlow method was developed from an early Osteoporosis Research study at the University of Florida. Today, it is the safest, most effective way to strength train.

You Can Significantly Slow Down Aging

Strength training can prevent and even reverse the downward spiral of aging due to muscle loss. Research shows to start as late as your 90’s, muscle strength can be re-gained.

Shepard Gould: 62 years old
“I started SuperSlow 15+ years ago because I hated doing weight work/resistance training on my own but kept reading about how healthy it is for you. It works! You get out of it what you put in. Helped me redistribute a little fat into a little muscle.  And I have the #1 trainer, Becky, who is the best combination of sweetness and taskmaster.”
Ann Kessler: 73 years old
“I’ve been doing Superslow once a week for almost two years.  It’s a great way to improve my strength so I can be an active Grandma and a healthier stronger me!  I benefit from the increased strength in all my daily activities and love the nutritional lifestyle tips from the amazing staff!”
Sydne Kalet: 72 years old
“The workout is always challenging and there is nothing I like better than to successfully overcome a challenge.  I’m confident I’m doing the right thing to ensure myself better health and a stronger body as I continue the aging process.  A stronger body also means a stronger mind and what can be better than that!”
Richard Neville: 75 years old
“I’m not doing any nature climbs with ice axes anymore, but I did just climb Mount Olympus this summer.  I still can play golf five days in a row. I do a lot of traveling in my business as a mediator, and I’m up for it. I sleep well. Everything you want working out to do for you, SuperSlow has done for me.”
Ira Fingerman: 68 years old
“At my annual checkup, my doctor told me I am in better shape now at 68 years old than I was 10 years ago.  Weight loss, stronger and all of my numbers have improved. I owe it all to SuperSlow and to my trainer Denise!”
Andy Rosenberg: 71 years old
“I like the fact that I can have input/control as to the level of the challenge. Theresa is very keen on watching my form so that I am not being pushed beyond my limitations. Over the years there have been mishaps in my life (broken wrist, broken leg, two cornea transplants and nine days of hospitalization with pneumonia,etc.). Each time Theresa has found a new beginning point and gotten me backup to new challenges.  I have been working on my posture all of my life. My workouts have helped my posture as well as my balance and sense of being centered.”
Marion C.: 67 years old
“What I like best is that I can go on the way to the office, wearing my office clothes (which are NOT casual) and get in and out in 25 mins and be in my office 10 minutes later.  I also like that the gym is so well staffed that I can move around my times and dates without any problems. The biggest benefit is that despite all the travel that I do, I have a pretty good chance of staying on track in terms of overall strength and fitness which is usually the first thing to suffer when one’s calendar gets out of control.”
Gerald Freedman: 80 years old
“I like that the workout is only 20 minutes long and I have been injury free for the 11 years that I’ve been working out with Andrew at CWSS.  I am still able to waterski, snow ski, and play competitive tennis!”
Larry Krucoff: 79 years old
“The workout is quick; the tasks are well-defined and the short-term goals (surpassing one’s previous weight limits) are achievable.  I started this program over 20 years ago wanting to maintain a certain level of performance in golf. For the most part, I’ve achieved that goal in part because of SuperSlow, in part also because of genes, practice and good luck.  Along the way, I’ve also had a very healthy and active existence again in part of SuperSlow.”
Elizabeth Sacks: 80 years old
“What I like most about the workout is that I trust my trainer Becky and I enjoy every moment of my workout with her.  I am 80 years old and I need to feel safe throughout my strength training and with SuperSlow I do. The workout efficiently includes every muscle in just a half hour, and I am still able to continue to be as active as ever.”
