Nina Gambling, the director and co-founder of LRG Fitness, spoke to Express.co.uk about what middle-aged women can do to prevent and lose weight too. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly will not only help 50-year-old women lose weight, but will also contribute to their overall health.
According to Nina, “the key is to find an exercise that you enjoy”.
She continued, “This will help you keep your exercise routine consistent and engaging, even on the days when you just don’t feel like it.
“Unless you have been diagnosed with a joint or health condition and have been told to avoid exercise, your goal should be to just keep moving either way.
“Stop looking for quick fixes or shortcuts when it comes to your general wellbeing because unfortunately they don’t exist.
“This can be done with your own body weight – lunges, squats, calf raises, pushups, leaning against a wall if necessary – or with weights, resistance bands, food cans and so on,” added Nina.
“One misconception is that by including resistance or weight training you will suddenly become a bodybuilder – you won’t, but you will help maintain bone density, reduce frailty, reduce your risk of osteoporosis, and burns to help improve calories and possibly improve sleep and reduce depression. “
Nina emphasized that “the way an exercise is performed during training is fundamental to any success”.
“Form and technique are paramount,” she said.
“It’s the quality of the training that affects your results, not necessarily the quantity.
“In addition, the right technology reduces the risk of injury.”
