Muscular Strength & Endurance

Many 40-plus individuals experience Sarcopenia, which means we are losing muscle mass resulting in decreased muscle strength, size and endurance.

Studies haves shown a person loses 50% of lean mass from age 20 to 90, with those age 50 to 70 losing 30% of their muscle strength!  In addition, as we age, there is a decrease in muscle endurance, size and weight relative to total body weight.  The by-product of Sarcopenia is loss of motor coordination affecting our daily activities of life.

The major reasons for loss of muscle strength and endurance are inactivity, nutritional deficiency, disease or medications – NOT chronological aging.

Y.E.S. Fitness specializes in reversing muscle loss for people 40-plus by taking advantage of innovative training methods focused on age appropriate intensity.  This will create more muscle strength, resulting in greater muscle endurance, which leads to our clients retaining more strength and balance so they live better as they age.
