How to fight the middle age spread for women

Thanks to Technogym’s digital fitness advancements and innovative research, there are easy and smart ways to battle the midlife bulge that gauge success by a loss of inches rather than the scale. In a new era of how we approach physical fitness, this personalized offering is engaging, motivating, fun, entertaining and beautifully designed.

It’s not how much weight you carry but where you carry it that matters.  According to recent global medical reports, a widespread phenomenon in middle-aged subjects such as excess fat on the belly could expose - in the long run and in predisposed subjects, such as women post menopause - to some pathologies related to this kind of phenomenon.

According to the American National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey - NHANES of 2019, this phenomenon affects two-thirds of women in the United States between the ages of 40 and 65.  The National Center for Health Statistics of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - CDC also estimates that only 22.9 percent of adults follow recommended guidelines for physical activity. This becomes even truer for women approaching middle age, in part due to the gradual loss of estrogen and changes in metabolism, especially if they carry a disproportionate amount of fat in their midsection.

According to last year’s - NHANES, nearly 2 out of 3 women (in the US) between 40 and 65 were classified as obese.  The American CDC's National Center for Health Statistics also estimates that only 22.9% of adults (in the U.S ) currently meet physical activity recommended guidelines. This gets even more specific for  women approaching midlife to stay at a healthy weight in part due the gradual loss of estrogen and changes in metabolism, especially if they carry a disproportionate amount of fat in their midsection.

To combat this problem, Technogym has shifted the fitness landscape down to the individual level through easy to use and smart technologies. Phy-gital (physical/digital) innovation that is simple, savvy, and (most importantly) geared specifically for the user to train, tone, lose weight and ultimately meet their wellness goals.

This array of beautiful designed, high-quality offerings features some of the latest Technogym high-tech equipment, state of the art Apps and consoles, to fast track healthy lifestyle changes.
