Avoiding the Slouch: Tips to improve your Posture

It's something that without a doubt gets harder with age, but teaching and educating individuals about maintaining a good posture is extremely important to all of us at Super Seniors Fitness.

Poor posture habits can result in nasty consequences to anyone at anytime.

We all know that severe posture problems can result in postural pain syndrome and this can hurt us from exercising and maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

The other damaging side effect of poor posture is the structural effect that it can have on the body.

When left uncorrected for a prolonged period of time, changes can occur within the human body as muscles become both shortened and weakened.

It's not uncommon to see individuals over the age of 60 to struggle to stay upright.

With that in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to explain to you some valuable tips that could really improve not only your posture, but also the strength of your muscles and joints.
