Gait & Strength Training for Older Populations


Exercise is essential for older populations, offering a multitude of benefits that contribute to overall health and well-being. You could even say it’s crucial to the years ahead

Remember, it’s never too late to start an exercise program and to start getting the benefits. The Sling Method provides a multi-stage exercise plan, which works on all aspects of healthy movement from head to toe. Focusing on posture, joint stability, muscular strength, bending down, reaching up, cross-body movements, balance, core musculature, and total-body co-ordination. Stay active, stay healthy!


  1. Reduced Risk of Functional Limitations: Regular physical activity can lower the risk of moderate or severe functional limitations in mid-life and older adults. It helps maintain mobility, independence, and the ability to perform daily tasks.
  2. Slowing Muscle and Bone Loss: As we age, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass and bone density. Exercise helps slow down this loss, preserving strength and bone health. It also reduces the risk of fractures, such as hip or wrist fractures.
  3. Improved Flexibility and Balance: Exercise enhances flexibility, tones muscles, and improves balance. These benefits are crucial for preventing falls and maintaining stability, especially as we age.
  4. Positive Impact on Mental Health: Engaging in physical activity has been shown to improve mental health and well-being among older adults. It can alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression, leading to a better quality of life.
  5. Enhanced Cardiovascular Fitness: Regular exercise supports heart health, lowers blood pressure, and increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels. It reduces the risk of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.
  6. Social Engagement: Group exercise classes or outdoor activities provide opportunities for social interaction, reducing feelings of loneliness and promoting a sense of community.
  7. Better Sleep and Cognitive Function: Exercise positively impacts sleep quality and cognitive function. It keeps the mind sharp and alert, contributing to overall vitality.

Working out with resistance bands is a great way to exercise for the following reasons:

  • Recruit the 'stabilizer' muscles, which support larger muscles and joints when we move, and help reduce the risk of injury.
  • Enhance strength training by mimicking gym equipment like free weights and cable machines.
  • Portable and simple to use, offering an easy alternative to weights.
  • Can be used anywhere and everywhere without a gym.
  • Can be used outdoors in the fresh air. Use a chain link fence, bleachers or even a tree to attach your resistance bands to.
  • Non-intimidating.
  • Improve mobility by providing resistance in multiple directions.
  • Increase coordination by benefiting form and balance.
  • Offer a very budget-friendly option.
