What is the programme about?
This is a very unique programme that has been created specifically for men over the age of 40 years. The purpose of the programme is to improve your health, fitness and wellness and combat the impact that ageing has on your body and health as much as possible. The most unique part of the course are the health workshops delivered by experts where we teach you in very simple and practical terms everything you need to know to achieve long term health and wellness. You will be supported on your journey with our full team of transformation experts 😊.
We see all of the time in practice and in research that men over the age of 40 years’ experience changes to their health including (i) loss in muscle size, strength and function, (ii) loss in bone mass and strength, (iii) gains in fat mass, and (iv) negative changes in cardiovascular (heart) and metabolic (how your body processes sugar and fat) health. All of these issues can accumulate to really negatively impact your physical and mental health, your physical ability, your activities of daily living and predispose you to conditions including osteoporosis, arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and much more.
We see these issues on a daily basis in our clinic, they are partly due to ageing, but mostly due to poor physical activity and nutrition habits. This statement is supported by an extensive body of research. We don’t see these issues in men who are physically active and who feed their body the nutrients they need for this phase in life. This course will teach you everything we know about living a long health span in a very simple and practical way.
What will the programme involve?
As part of this programme our team of experts will deliver exercise and stretching sessions, nutrition talks, and a variety of health education workshops that are completely specific to you. You will also receive weekly meal plans and advice, home based exercise sessions, personalised assessments, and exercise advice where necessary (for injuries and clinical conditions you might have) and plenty of support and motivation from our Transformation team. Our mission is to improve your health, fitness and wellness and teach you everything you need to know to transform your lifestyle for long term health.
