Debra increased her bone density almost one full standard deviation - at age 60 no less. Carol suffered from back pain that prevented her from doing weight bearing exercise. Carol was able to use our MedX equipment with its special medical rehab features. After more that 20 years since she was first diagnosed with osteopenia her doctor informed her that she was osteopenia-free. As she put it her 'bone tisssue was replaced,repaired and restored".
The exercise protocol used by the personal trainers at Austin Personal Training and at New Oreans Personal Training was derived from a study working with osteopenia sufferers at the University of Florida. Researchers found that joints hurt less, bone density increased, and muscles were stronger and more toned with minimal time exercising. It has been shown effective for men and women of all ages.
What we do for those with osteopenia is a treatment not a cure. With treatments there often are side-effects. The side-effects of a properly designed strength training program are:
- Increased metabolism
- Lessen chances for injury
- Increased strength
- Slows the aging process
- Feel better
- Look better
- Improved functioning of your immune system
- Enhanced joint flexibility
- Improved balance and coordination
- Alleviated symptoms of depression
