Think you’re too old to start a fitness program? Think again! You’re never too old to live a healthier, more fit life. Your quality of life is important, right? Did you know that as women age we lose calcium in our bones, which makes them weaker and more prone to breaking? Strength training can help. Strength training improves the density of your bones, increases your flexibility and overall balance, and even helps with mental clarity. If you have arthritis, getting active and mobile helps relieve some of the pain associated with stiff joints. A body in motion, stays in motion.
Don’t think that “strength training” means lifting heavy weights and dumbbells. It can be things as simple as strengthening your core with yoga, working on balance and flexibility at the same time. It can include using a resistance band, where you can gradually increase the resistance as your strength increases.
Being fit at fifty and beyond is a way to not only improve your quality of life, but to give you a whole new outlook on life! You’ll learn to eat better, learn what exercises work for you, and become a more “centered” person. There’s no reason you can’t stay fit your entire life!
