Baby Boomers

Here's something I can truly relate to! Yes, I'm also in this category. As we age, most of us experience the aches, pains and stiffness. Many of us have had injuries and/or surgery. I myself have had 2 hernias and a hip replacement, but we can't let that stop us! Medium to low impact resistance training along with incorporating cardiovascular conditioning can make a big difference, but more is needed as we approach our later years. So in addition to cardio and resistance training, let's increase our flexibility, develop more range of motion, improve our balance and become stronger - Let's get movin'!

Research shows that people with high blood pressure can lower and maintain normal blood levels through regular exercise.

"I started personal training with Mike three weeks after I was diagnosed with a herniated disk in my lower back on August 19, 2016. I started physical therapy three times a week but felt I needed a little more intense training to strengthen my back. My training with Mike started with basic exercises targeting the core and back. I started feeling stronger after 2 weeks. I’ve never done personal training before. I was hesitant at first since it seemed intimidating to me. However after two weeks into the training, I could feel the difference already.
Michael is an excellent trainer. He introduced low impact exercises that really helped my back in the first two weeks. It was encouraging to see the progress that I made in the first month. He motivated me to do more as the weeks progressed. Due to the training I received, I was able to complete my physical therapy after 6 weeks. The program he implemented for me was intense yet structured perfectly at my pace. I not only learned the importance of each exercise, but also learned how beneficial personal training can be when faced with a scary diagnosis. Michael has a great attitude and is very patient. He explained the importance of each routine and stressed the significance of a healthy diet. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Michael. My back has improved dramatically. I could not have done this without his support and guidance."

 ​​"I started training sessions with Mike from MJT in Oct 2016. I had to stop other exercise programs due to knee and back pain. After a consultation to talk about my limitations, availability and expectations, we started training together 2-3 times a week. Benefits of training with Mike: What's better than having your trainer come to you! Mike is always very timely and brings all equipment needed. He also provides great health information, healthy and cleaning eating tips, and a good sounding board for any health concerns. At some point I will need a knee replacement, but with Mike's knowledge, I've been able to continue with beneficial work outs, including cardio and weight training. It's great to work with someone who has the knowledge and experience to provide people, in their 60's, and even with health issues, a great health program that will add years to their lives."

I am proud to partner with a wonderful organization, Healthy Lombard. 
Founded in October 2009, Healthy Lombard is a Village-wide Initiative that was formed in order to address the problem of Childhood Obesity with positive, effective solutions as well as promote living a healthy lifestyle.
It sponsors a website that features a daily blog,  a calendar of village-wide events, and other “participation” activities such as Apple Crunch Day, Fitness Fairs, Flat Apple Summer activities, G.Y. M. (Get Yourself Moving) Bags, and Health Hero Awards, that often involve both children and adults because, without great adult role models, children’s habits will not change.
Healthy Lombard also produces a monthly cable show called “Health Local. This 1/2 hour, magazine type program, features 6 different health-related elements.
Healthy Lombard is very proud that it has been recognized as a blueprint for other villages and towns to follow in their quest to make a positive difference in the health of future generations.
