If you think you’ve hit those years when it’s all downhill, maybe all is not lost. You may just need to rehab your fitness. No matter how old you are or what shape you’re in, as long as you can get up and move, you can become a better, healthier you. There are even workout routines for seniors that are in wheel chairs. Octogenarian Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice, exercises regularly. Even though she’s fought serious diseases, she still remains a role model for everyone as they age. You don’t have to agree with her decisions on the bench to find it an inspiration.
It all starts in the kitchen.
Healthy living starts with the food you put in your body. First, it should be food, not artificial substances with chem lab names disguised as food. Even many vegetarian “fake” meats are made to taste like real meat with additives. Whole foods don’t pretend to be something they aren’t. There’s no hiding the fact that an apple is an apple or a tomato is a tomato when you find it as it appears in nature. Start by eating more whole foods, cutting out food with added sugar and processed foods as you do.
There’s no doubt about it, the more you move, the more energy you’ll have to move. If you don’t have the energy to start a formal program, don’t let that stop you from getting your body prepared to start one. Even though we personalize programs and design them for each person’s level of fitness, some people want to be fitter before they start. Take a walk daily if that’s where you have to start, but do it!
Working out with weights will get you in shape fast.
We do a lot of weight training here for a very good reason. It works! It helps make you stronger, aids in weight loss and depending on how you do it, can actually boost your endurance. For women, don’t worry about getting bulky muscles. It won’t happen. As you age, you lose muscle tissue. You can reverse that. What’s even more impressive is that you can also control and some say reverse osteoporosis.
- Flexibility is important and can prevent serious injuries. You don’t have to make the noise your father made when getting out of a chair if you workout with us. We help you get stronger and more flexible.
- Enjoy life to the fullest by rehabbing your fitness. Getting older doesn’t mean getting weaker and frail. You and your dedication to fitness makes a difference.
- Working out regularly can help you to break the hold of prescriptions. Working out regularly and eating healthy helps lower blood pressure, can put type 2 diabetes into remission, can help your heart and strengthen your muscles and bones.
