The Fit at 45 Plus program is now open for registration purposes. The actual program will commence in June of 2017. If you are currently experiencing a lack of muscle endurance and strength, reduced energy level, lower metabolism, and recurrent ailments, you may want to sign up for this program, sooner than later.
A combined nutrition and exercise program that utilizes both nutrition
knowledge in the classroom and exercise instruction in the field. In
this way, the proper foods, right fluids, and correct fortifiers can be
built into the diet beforehand in the kitchen to efficiently regain lost muscle mass, heart strength, and lung power after the activity sessions. In short, your body can't synthesize new muscle mass and rebuild lost
heart and lung tissue from poor nutrition and a lack of nutrients. Your body doesn't work that way!
You need both nutrition and exercise together in the same program, but the approach needs to be divided because of the different requirements that your muscular system has from your cardio-pulmonary system. To accomplish these goals, the program is split into two parts, namely:
Streams 1F and 1M: Streams 1F and 1M of the Fit at 45 Plus program are great for female and male adults, respectively, aged 45 plus, who are:
Streams 2F and 2M: However, streams 2F and 2M of the program have been designed for female and male adults, respectively, aged 45 plus, who are:
Common Denominator: What they all have in common is the need to regain lost muscle mass and improve their muscle endurance and strength, as well as regain lost heart strength and lung capacity and enhance their cardio-respiratory fitness.
Nutritional Aspects: The foods we eat, the fluids we drink, and the exercises we do on a daily basis determine the health of our musculoskeletal system. To regain lost muscle mass after the age of 45 you need to nourish your body with the right foods, fluids, and fortifiers, as well as strengthen your muscular system with the correct resistance exercises.
Exercise Aspects: Gains in muscle endurance and strength are the hallmarks of this part of the combined nutrition and exercise program! Part A of the program is designed to recover lost muscle endurance and strength, as well as rebuild the necessary muscle size and definition so you can maintain your activities of daily life and/or prepare yourself for more rigorous exercise activity.
Muscle Mass Losses with Age: Adults who do not perform some type of strength training sacrifice more than 5 pounds of muscle tissue every decade, and older adults lose even more than that.
Age: 30 to 40: 0.5 lbs per year X 10 years = 5.0 lbs
Age: 40 to 50: 0.5 lbs per year X 10 years = 5.0 lbs
Muscle Loss: From age 30 to 50 years: 10+ pounds
Age: 50 to 60: 1.0 lbs per year X 10 years = 10.0 lbs
Age: 60 to 70: 1.0 lbs per year X 10 years = 10.0 lbs
Muscle Loss: From age 50 to 70 years: 20+ pounds
Total Muscle Loss: From age 30 to 70 years: 30+ pounds
In terms of percentages, on average, a person will lose approximately 40% of his or her muscle mass, as well as 50% of his or her muscle strength from age 30 to age 70. So, by the age of 45, you may have lost up to 20% of your muscle mass, and 25% of your muscle strength. Nutritional protocols and strength training are highly recommended to counteract this loss of muscle mass. It is best to signup for the Fit at 45 Plus program now!
Nutritional Aspects: The foods we eat, the fluids we drink, and the exercises we do on a daily basis determine the health of our heart and lungs. To rebuild lost lung power and heart strength, especially after the age of 45, you need to nourish your internal environment and strengthen your cardio-respiratory system with the right fortifiers and correct exercises, respectively.
Exercise Aspects: Gains in cardio-respiratory efficiency, lung power, and heart strength are the hallmarks of this 16-week adult fitness program! The program is designed to rebuild the necessary aerobic and pumping capacity, as well as add conditioning gains, so you can maintain your activities of daily life and/or prepare yourself for more rigorous exercise programs.
Lung and Heart Losses with Age: After the age of 25, adults lose on average between 0.5 and 1.0% of their lung capacity per year, if they do nothing to prevent the loss. So, by the age of 45 you may have lost between 12.5 and 25% of your cardio-respiratory functioning. This means less oxygen is delivered to the cells of your body, which results in:
Common Denominator: Now is the time to begin to recover your lost lung power and aerobic capacity, as well as your lost heart strength and pumping capacity with this combined nutrition and exercise program. It is best to register for the Fit at 45 Plus program now!
