Before we begin todays blog, I want to take a moment to introduce and explain why the author of the following article, Luke Gordon, DPT, and those that will follow have been added to the fitness training information.
Before beginning with todays’ topic let me explain the background of how it all came about. I first became aware of Luke Gordon, DPT, in the Spokesman-Review newspaper. His was a new addition to the paper and the reason it caught my eye were the topics he wrote about such as knee rehab, shoulders, and other common problems with our age group. They were subjects I wanted to know more about to help my trainees in the gym.
The more I read his column, the better I liked it. So, I called his office and we discussed his participating with me on the https://activelyfitseniors.blog/, he agreed and now we have another excellent source of professional knowledge helping us out in out journey towards better health and fitness.
