Special Populations

Special Populations

It used to be that exercise was reserved for the young, healthy and active. Fortunately that school of thought has changed and it is now accepted that many special populations can gain huge benefits from regular controlled exercise under the guidance of a qualified professional.

For example, during pregnancy exercising both pre- and post-natal can make pregnancy, delivery and recovery easier and more comfortable.

One-in-three women suffer from osteoporosis and research has shown that weight bearing exercise like aerobics and resistance training can increase bone density and strengthen muscle fibres.
