Strength For Health
Strength is not everything but without it we are nothing
The more we train, the more strength we have at our disposal for each kilogram of body weight. Remember that muscle strength is what keeps us upright, brings us upstairs, supports us. Without muscle strength we would be rooted to the spot. Why do we feel so good in the bath? It’s because water displacement makes us feel lighter. If we train our body for strength, we can enjoy this feeling on a permanent basis. Most people can double their muscle strength within two years and about one-third can triple it. Quality of life is dependent upon the body’s load/strength ratio.
Kieser Training - an effective solution
Kieser Training is a specialist in solving the problems of muscles and bones weakened through lack of use. What does that mean?
There is only a short period in our life when we build up our strength. This is followed by a long period of a decline in strength. Between the age of 25 and the day we die, our body loses 30 - 40 % of its muscle mass. If we take no remedial action, muscles are replaced by connective and fatty tissue. What is frequently regarded as an ageing process is often just the result of passivity and a lack of exercise. However, movement on its own is not enough to keep the body working properly. The quality of the exercise depends upon the resistance it overcomes. The core attribute of Kieser Training is our ability to regulate this resistance with great accuracy and then apply it for preventive or therapeutic purposes.
Kieser Training is strength training for health based on the findings of scientific research and offered as prevention or therapy. This twin-track approach provides customers with a personalised solution.
Strength training as prevention
Preventive strength training delivers a general increase in strength. Strength training is an effective way of remaining strong and healthy whether for everyday activities, work or sport. To ensure success, we give customers a careful introduction and regular accompanied sessions.
Strength training as therapy
Medical strenghtening therapy is under the direction of a doctor and supervised on a 1:1 basis by a therapist. It provides a safe and targeted increase in muscle strength for those with serious musculoskeletal problems. At the end of therapy, customers switch to independent strength training in order to maintain the gains in the long term.
