Staying Fit After 50

You Can Be Fit

These days it seems that a lot of people are talking about working  out. The conversation typically goes one of two directions. Either we’re talking about how much we’re working out or the need to work out and getting started. Its the getting started part that stymies a lot of people.

Your age is not where you are chronologically, but biologically – yes, past a certain age, people begin to lose muscular strength, balance and flexibility, but that does not mean that you can’t get younger this year. Fitness after 50 means learning to listen better to your body, varying your exercise, and modifying your diet.  

Health and fitness are things that many people have pre-conceived notions about – “no pain, no gain” for example – but that just isn’t true. To make yourself younger and more vibrant every year, it is important to find exercises and sports to pursue without a lot of pain. Exercise can be transformative, sharpening your focus and keeping your spirits up. It should not cause chronic or acute pain, but it should challenge you.

Recently I sat down with a personal trainer in St. Paul, JT Thomas. He has his own facility and has been helping people to change thier outlook on what it takes to be fit.  Listen this weekend on Beyond 50 Transformation to hear how JT is helping the young and the not so young alike. The show airs in Minneapolis/St. Paul at 1pm on 950 AM. you can also hear the podcast on my website.
