The Biomechanics of Aging

Embark on a journey into the dynamic interplay between aging and human movement.  

What you learn: 

  • Muscle Function Assessment: Evaluate your muscle strength, flexibility, and balance, gaining insights into your movement capacities and potential limitations. 
  • The Impact of Falls: Decipher the complex forces at play during falls, analyzing their impact on bones, joints, and overall function. Equip yourself with knowledge and strategies for fall prevention and mitigation. 
  • Corrective Exercises for Enhanced Mobility: Discover evidence-based exercise programs specifically designed to counteract age-related biomechanical changes. Improve muscle function, enhance joint stability, and optimize gait patterns for an active and independent lifestyle. 

Who should attend: 

  • You're curious about how your body moves and changes with age. 
  • You want to proactively maintain your mobility and independence. 
  • You're eager to learn exercises specifically tailored to enhance your body's biomechanics. 

In addition to this event, you can enjoy all of the daily activities that Pritikin offers. See what a typical day looks like.

4:30 pm: The Biomechanics of Aging: Movement, Muscles, and Maintaining Mobility 

This intensive course delves into the biomechanical principles that govern our bodies, particularly as we navigate the later stages of life.

Develop a repertoire of corrective exercises to address specific biomechanical limitations and promote optimal mobility.

Unlock the secrets of biomechanics and empower yourself to move with purpose, strength, and resilience as you age.
