Atan old age, individuals tend to have an excuse for not finding timeto exercise and claiming to be very committed. However, the mainissue of concern is that they fear to subject their body to a littlepain, therefore, getting them into great shape physically and healthwise. I carried out an interview with a fifty-six-year-old who is ina training program to help him still live healthily. I asked somequestion about the training program and if there was a lot of pain intraining at an old age. He gave me a smile and told me pain isweakness leaving the body hence feeding on my urge to get to know histraining program (Leenderset al. 2013).

Theprogram he had enrolled himself in takes a maximum of forty-fiveminutes thus avoiding too much muscle strain. It is carried out onMondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays leaving the other days ofthe week as resting days to help with muscle recovery. The programfocuses on the overall body fitness since it involves working on thechest, back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps. The abs, upper legs,lower legs, and cardio, are also another point of stress with theexercise. On Mondays, he takes on six activities. The first exerciseis cable incline fly where one lies on an inclined bench and pullssome weight from the sides hence putting stress on the chest. Thesecond is the wide grip pull down where he concentrates on the upperand lower back as he pushes weights from that position. There is thenthe dumbbell shoulder shrug and the dumbbell bicep curl as thefollowing procedures followed respectively. The triceps are thenworked on with the triceps push down- rope where you pull weight at astandstill position with your forearms. Each exercise takes about oneminute with a repetition of three sets. The last activity of thefirst day is on cardio, and that is riding the recumbent bike whichis done for thirty minutes.

OnTuesdays, we have focused on the upper and lower legs, abs and thechest. The first exercise is the bench press but with lighter weightfor muscle recovery. The next exercise I line involves ball wallsquats to work on the upper legs. While resting the tension on thelegs, he goes to the abs and does weighted crunches. StandingDumbbells calf raises then follow to help with strengthening thelower legs. For cardio on the second day, he takes part in a boxingexcesses to help improve his speed and footwork. The exercises doneon Monday are repeated on Wednesday and those carried out on Tuesdayare repeated on Friday.

Healso explains how the program has an instructor to help walk himthrough the whole process. As a branch manager of one of Coca-Colaretail outlets, he is often subjected to high levels of stress fromthe high expectations required of him. The goals of this exercises,therefore, is to ensure he is healthy through improvement of hislungs and heart functioning from daily exercise. Exercise alsorelieves pressure and therefore protecting him from suffering issuesrelated to blood pressure. Through exercising, there is thedevelopment of a strong bone structure just what he needs to help himgo to work daily and supervise all operations at the workplace. Theprogram was brought up with the goal of keeping the old healthy inthe working environment.
