Dustan Howell, Personal Trainer
All the riches in the world cannot replace "good" health. Being healthy as you age is directly related to your fitness level. Getting older is a blessing that comes everyday. You do not have to work at it. You do not need any special skills. You just need to exist. Face the inevitable with a plan to "get fit and stay fit." The more fit, the better you can enjoy a "good" quality of life as you age. LCF's Build A Better You Personal Training program is NOT a quick fix, 60 day, fast paced, exhausting program. On the contrary, it is systematic and methodical, and requires a lifetime commitment to "get fit" and "stay fit." It is a program designed and built for you. Virtually, this is a program for everyone and anyone. Dustan Howell, ACSM(American College of Sports Medicine) certified expert personal fitness trainer, uses "a proven method "RESISTANCE TRAINING" to help clients get fit and stay fit. The principle of "Progressive Overload" is the preferred personal training model. Clients lift a weight heavy enough to create muscular
fatigue. Lift with GOOD form for 12-15 reps, and as the weight gets easier, more weight is added. This is the principle of progressive overload. Using the progressive overload model, muscles get stronger and more toned. Resistance Training (RT) can slow down and reverse the aging process.
A client who does not quit, gets fit and stays fit.
Resistance Training is ideal for older adults because programs are easily personalized based on individual ability, health and medical limitations, experience, physical condition, and size. Dustan is very skilled at adapting and designing unique programs for unique individuals. ADULTS 50+ can gain health benefits at any age.Build a better, stronger, fitter you.
Services are available in the city of Philadelphia, PA. Training is offered in your home, in a partnering senior residential facility, or in the In Shape At Home Studio. Click on the "Personal Training" page for more information about the Build A Better You (BABY) Resistance Training program.
