Exercises that Reverse Aging 

As the years march on, many of us may find ourselves wondering how many years we might have left. We may try to avoid these thoughts, but who hasn’t, at some point, speculated about “what percent” of their life they’ve lived? The truth is there are no guarantees, and we never really know how many years are still ahead. But, what if we could shift the focus of those thoughts? Instead of focusing on how much time we hope to have, what if we put our energy into figuring out what kind of time we’d like to have left? Unlike the number of years, the quality of those years is something we have some control over. And the best part? It’s never too late to get started!

Getting in Shape After 50

What about you? Have you done the math for your life, your family, and your goals? How many more years do you need? What’s on your bucket list and what will it take for you to be healthy, strong, and fit enough to do it? The time to start planning for the future is now. To do that, it helps to consider your physical abilities in terms of what you will NEED to do, LIKE to do, and WANT to do. In the chart below from the Functional Aging Institute, the top/dark line reflects the capabilities of someone consciously investing in their health and fitness.

The bottom line is the trajectory of someone who becomes increasingly sedentary as they age (often believing that’s just what old age looks like). As you can see, it’s the decisions we make right now that determine how we spend the rest of our lives.

Do you know where you are on this chart? It’s not just based on numerical age. So, you might be 57 and be very high on the chart. Or you might be 45 and already realizing you’re not where you want to be. The reality is the functional trajectory of ageing is true for all of us. We’re all born and, at some point, we’re all going to die. As we age, our physical abilities naturally decline somewhat. But it’s not too late to slow that process down. The right personal trainer and program will help keep our abilities on the top line of this chart so that we can continue to do the things we love and want to do into our 80s, 90s, and beyond!

Its More than Just Losing Weight

Some people think that the only reason you would work out would be to lose weight. But there are considerable short and long-term benefits to exercising – for everyone, not just women over 50.

On a day-to-day basis, exercise makes you feel better. Research has shown that the benefits of exercise include: · More energy · Better mood · Mental clarity · Decreased depression · Stronger internal motivation · Greater confidence · Stronger body · Stronger joints · Reduced arthritis pain · Better cardiac health and blood flow · Reduced risk for stroke and many diseases.


Exercise Makes You Feel Good

Just imagine how different your life would be if you were even 10% happier, if your thinking was clearer, or if you had a bit more pep in your step. Imagine how you would feel if you weren’t tired every day after work, if your joints didn’t ache, and if your back wasn’t tight in the morning. Exercise can do that! In fact, researchers have found that the mere act of movement releases powerful endorphins in your brain that make you feel good. You may not love every moment of the hard work on your body, but you should always end up literally feeling great about what you’ve just done for yourself. That’s “the buzz” we aim for, and it is something you gain from your daily workouts.

So, if you are a woman over 50 and you want to get toned, there’s no reason why you cannot. To find out how, contact us today and let’s have a one-on-one discussion about an exercise program that will deliver the results YOU want, as a woman over 50.
