Need Self Defense for Senior Citizens? Buy Personal Alarms

Human beings are the most dangerous creature ever to walk the Earth. I am not saying all humans are bad; in fact I like to think that the vast majority of us are caring, thoughtful, non-violent creatures that pose a threat to absolutely no one. However, I am not so naive that I don’t realize the fact that there are those of us out there that truly live without a conscience and have no trouble nor lose no sleep over hurting others for their own personal gain. What really concerns me is that these bad people I speak of are not always entirely unintelligent and because of this they are going to choose targets they feel will give the least resistance. These bad guys (and gals) are going to take advantage of people they consider to be of inferior strength when choosing someone to mug and you know who oftentimes fits that bill? Senior citizens.

 

Time unfortunately slows us all down and as a result our growing senior population is finding themselves the target of more and more wrong doings. This is something that should concern each and every senior citizen and why every senior should have a means of defending themselves in the unfortunate event of an attack. The options for defending one’s self are relatively vast but the one that makes the most sense for senior citizens, in my opinion, is personal alarms. Personal alarms are ideal for seniors because they are completely safe to use, unlike a firearm, self-defense baton, pepper spray, stun gun or any of the other most popular choices available when discussing self-defense.

 

A personal alarm does not work by incapacitating an attacker but by hopefully scaring them away with the fear of being apprehended. You see a criminal will not have a very successful criminal career if that criminal is not afraid of being caught and a great way for a criminal to be caught is for people to be watching when he or she commits a crime. And what is a great way to draw people’s attention? How about with a 130 decibel shriek from a personal alarm? That will usually do the trick and when an attacker hears that shriek he or she knows darn well that anybody in the nearby vicinity heard it as well and will be looking his way immediately. I think chances are pretty good that the second a senior citizen sets a personal alarm off that the majority of criminals will turn tail and run from the scene.

 

So if you are a senior citizen or anyone that wants to add a very effective measure of safety please consider buying a personal alarm.

 

Stay Safe,

Personal Alarms for Seniors Product Review: The Keychain Alarm

In the past I’ve written about several ways that senior citizens can help defend themselves from an attack and the one that will always make the most sense to me is a personal alarm. The reason that personal alarms make so much sense to me and why I have no problem whatsoever in recommending their use to anyone is because they are appropriate for just that, anyone. There are some senior citizens, even the majority I would say, to whom I would have no reservations about  recommending a stun device or defensive spray but not all. Stun guns and pepper spray can be very dangerous and these devices wouldn’t be effective if it weren’t for the fact that they are dangerous. They are supposed to be dangerous for the attacker though and if a senior is not in relatively decent shape they run a much higher risk of having such a device taken from them and potentially used against them! For these reasons I will not recommend stun devices or pepper sprays as a blanket recommendation for all seniors would be foolish and irresponsible on my part. Don’t get me wrong, a reasonably fit and alert senior could definitely benefit from having a can of pepper spray in their purse or pocket but if I’m going to recommend a non-lethal self-defense device for all seniors it will be a personal alarm like the keychain alarm. I suppose the keychain alarm could potentially cause hearing damage with its 130 decibel alarm but that is extremely unlikely and aside from that it is impossible to inflict bodily harm on anyone with a personal alarm. Because of this I feel as though a personal alarm may not be as entirely effective as the more dangerous options you have with pepper spray or a stun gun but they can still be amazingly effective for a simple keychain alarm.

The simple fact of the matter is that criminals do not want to be caught and hence your average criminal (the ones with at least one brain cell still working) are not going to like it when attention is drawn their way when they attempt to mug a senior citizen. Having the senior citizen set off a 130 decibel alarm that can be heard up to a quarter mile away is going to draw a fair amount of this unwanted attention and because of that reason i think the vast majority of muggers will turn tail and run and look for someone else to mug.

So if you are a senior citizen or have a loved one who is a senior citizen that you’d like to help be safe please consider a personal keychain alarm.

 

Stay Safe,

Personal Trainer Jobs

Looking for personal trainer jobs? You absolutely need to have the right stuff to apply for personal trainer jobs with any hope of getting the position, you need to show dedication, loyalty, and have a great encouraging personality. Health and fitness isn’t a zero sum game, you don’t have to look a certain way to be fit and healthy, but you do need to have enough knowledge to apply for these personal trainer jobs. Knowledge required for personal trainer jobs comes down to a few key areas. The first of these areas is biology; you need to know how the body works. You need to understand when it’s under too much stress, when it is injured, and when it is healthy. You need to be able to recognise signs that the fitness regime you’re putting forward to your client is too strenuous or too lax, you need to know when someone is overworked either through exercise or their regular job, and you need to be able to tell when someone is ill. Nutrition knowledge is the next step in getting personal trainer jobs. Nutrition isn’t down to eating salads all the time, the key part of a balanced diet is the balanced part. You don’t need to be a fascist about what your clients eat as long as they’re not overdoing it on certain foods and avoiding the essentials.

Next up for personal trainer jobs qualifications is the subject of exercise. You couldn’t apply for any personal trainer jobs without knowing the ins and outs of exercise. Not everybody has to lift weights, run miles, and swim one hundred laps to be fit. Fitness isn’t down to an idealised idea of tight muscular bodies and exercise should not reflect that. You don’t have to be a body builder to be strong, you don’t have to be thin to be able to run for miles and swim for hours, and you don’t need to be young to be in great condition. If you know about these elements and beyond, personal trainer jobs will open up to you as well as other opportunities.
