Exercises to Lose Weight Start Here
For many women desiring to lose weight and stay in shape, their first and sometimes only thought is “Where can I find an exercise program that will help me lose weight?” But this assumes, quite incorrectly, that losing weight is as simple as starting an exercise program with this simple aim in mind. In reality, there is no one single exercise for losing weight. But the good news is that by starting an exercise class in order to lose weight you will be rewarded with a whole array of personal benefits like significantly improved balance and mobility.
Balance and Mobility Keep Us Moving
Balance and mobility go hand in hand and form part of the essential workout exercises for women over 50 who want to get in shape. While balance ensures that we stay upright and are able to control our movements, mobility directs the many types of movements that are needed in specific environments. Both are essential for living your best life. You need balance and mobility when you play a sport, like tennis or golf, and you need them when you get up from a chair or when turning to look behind you. Enjoyment of the things we want to do and like to do is diminished when we begin to notice challenges to our balance or mobility—when we start to struggle going up and down steps, dancing with our partner, or when dealing with difficult terrain.
For some, even turning our head to the left or right while we walk in a straight line becomes a challenge. That’s when we start to see people opting out of hiking and biking opportunities; skipping a boat ride because they can’t climb in or out of the craft; or settling for simpler holidays because they just don’t have the physical capabilities needed to explore the world. You may not be at a point today where your balance and mobility are keeping you from doing much. But think about the coming years. How invested are you, currently, in maintaining your balance and mobility so you can keep doing the things you need, want, and love to do for the rest of your life?
Training Variety for Balance and Mobility
Life is an adventure, and you want to be ready to take on whatever opportunities might come along. That means we need to train not just to lose weight, but also for a wide variety of physical activities. As a woman over 50, one thing you’re likely to notice is that balance and mobility training incorporates different movements than the exercises you may be accustomed to. You can expect your workouts to be much more dynamic, and, in a lot of ways, much more fun because we’re going to be incorporating new things all the time. As soon as you feel your workouts have mastered one thing, we are going to shift gears and introduce another obstacle or another step. A different platform. A different device.
We’re going to ask you to get up and down from the floor in different ways. You may be challenged to carry uneven weights, to perform exercises while standing on padded surfaces, to reach in all directions with your feet firmly planted beneath your hips, and more. When we challenge your body this way—with unique tasks and motions—your balance and mobility improve.
At Renewed after 50, our goal is to get you to a place where you will not have trouble doing any of things that you want to do (or dream to do), no matter what your age is.
Whether you’re a woman in your 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s, you will still be able to move with grace and ease and will be able to do all the things you want to do. Movement, in our opinion, is living, and we want to make sure you live your life and enjoy it to the fullest.
When you join one of our workout chasses as a woman in your 50’s, you will achieve much more than simply losing weight, even though that may have been your starting goal. You will dramatically improve your whole physical body and with that, you will also improve your mind, find more energy and improve your overall wellbeing. Losing weight then simply becomes a bonus!
