Personal fitness training for people over 40
who want to train at home to get fit and stay fit for life!

Working out at a gym doesn't work for everybody. (Statistically, most gym memberships go unused.) But there's a great alternative: train at home! You don't need a ton (literally) of equipment.

How many pieces of equipment are here? How many cats?

There are some challenges to training at home, in particular:

  • Knowing what to do and how to do it
  • Getting going and sticking with it

StrongFast Fitness can help with personal training and coaching for you to use at home including:

  • Fully individualized training programs
  • Online progress entry and monitoring
  • Daily monitoring and feedback
  • Online personal support system—not automated messages!
  • Video chats available
  • Training/coaching sessions…your place or ours!
  • Assistance with setting up your home fitness area

StrongFast uses two-week custom training blocks called "Blitzes" and a propietary online system for programs, feedback, tracking, and more.

How do I know this system works? I use it myself! Yes, all of my training is done using Blitzes and recorded in blitzometer. And almost all of my training is done at home.

Invest in a healthy future: Get stronger now!

Age-related strength and muscle loss (sarcopenia) isn’t just a possibility…if you’re over 40, it’s probably already started. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • Grunting and groaning when standing/sitting or other everyday exertions?
  • Harder to climb stairs? (Do you need to hold the handrails more?)
  • Harder to open jars? (Grip strength is often the first ability to decline.)
  • Walking more slowly and/or carefully?
  • No longer doing physical activities you used to enjoy?

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Aging, for Medicare enrollees age 65-74 more than 12% of men and 21% of women are unable to perform at least one of these physical functions:

  • Stoop/kneel
  • Reach overhead
  • Write
  • Walk 2-3 blocks
  • Lift 10 lb.

In fact, the most commonly failed measure is the ability to walk just two or three blocks. Being able to get around quickly and safely on foot is an ability we often take for granted but is a critical factor in your quality of life.

If you're well under 65, you might be wondering what this has to do with you. Getting stronger now doesn't only help you now (in many ways), it also builds a strength base that will help you as you get older.

You’ve probably already seen the effects of aging on older loved ones: difficulty standing, walking, lifting, reaching, etc. These are all very basic physical functions. At StrongFast Fitness, we specialize in helping people who want more out of life.

  • Running and jumping and dancing and playing
  • Hiking and climbing and biking and skiing
  • Lifting TVs, air conditioners, or other heavy objects
  • Carrying bags of groceries
  • Moving furniture

Improving Pull-up ROM

Not long ago, I wrote a post on the importance of using a full range of motion (ROM) in strength exercises. One of the most difficult exercises to do full ROM is the pull-up (or chin-up, which is just a pull-up variation). Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean we shouldn’t … Continue reading

Home Equipment – 9: Pull-up Bar

Onward ho with the endless series on home fitness equipment. This time around it’s the pull-up bar. Considering it’s primarily just a horizontal pole above your head, it’s surprisingly versatile. That’s right, the pull-up bar isn’t just for pull-ups. And of course, there are different bar styles. Continue reading

Lifting ROM

Range of motion, or ROM, is an often overlooked but very important part of lifting weights. It’s a key factor in maintaining mobility, especially as we get less young. The term “muscle-bound” is usually associated with a heavily developed bodybuilder whose own muscular development limits his movement. But big muscles … Continue reading

HIIT vs Tabata? Really?

I wasn’t planning on writing this post. But I’m doing it anyway. One of the news feeds I use recognizes that I read a lot of fitness-related articles so it shows me more than most people see. Most are easily dismissed by the titles: they might be “click bait” or … Continue reading

Home Equipment – 8: Weight Bench

Continuing our series on home workout equipment, at #8 we have the familiar weight bench. Some folks would probably list it higher. Personally, I think even number eight is being generous. But they can certainly be useful. Continue reading
