You're Never Too Old For Fitness And Health!
By Peter Chown
Ok, you've turned 40, you've missed the boat right? You've become overweight, have a good drink at the weekend, or have kids, obviously no time at all to look after yourself.
You're now in your 50's, well that's it you're life is nearly over and no need to even think of looking after yourself!
Well, you're in you're in your 60's, 70's or 80's, seriously, there really isn't any point now right?
Wrong wrong wrong!
Natural Physique client Randhir is in his forties, he started training just before his 40th birthday and wanted to be fit, healthy and in great shape in his 40's and beyond. He's achieved that and keeps achieving more. He's not a gym addict, he has great balance in his life with work, exercise and family.
Hitting your 50's doesn't mean you can't look good, have great health and fitness. Natural Physique client Karen is 55 and in superb shape, a great level of fitness and health which a recent health check confirmed. She is the equivalent to a 40 year old and keeps getting 'younger'! Karen didn't start untilI she was in her forties. She now exercises with her husband Paul too, who himself has run half marathons and marathons, he didn't start until in his forties.
BE INSPIRED .
And beyond your 60's, well, it's never too late to start! My mum, after many years of me nagging her to exercise to keep strength in her legs and for overall health, she started exercising in her mid 70's, we're not talking marathons and lifting tons of weight, but moving a lot more, using her body to strengthen her muscles with keep fit classes and using the outdoor gym over the local park, she goes with her friends so it's become a great social time too, going for a tea and a gossip afterwards in the sports club in the park.
My partner Michelle, her grandmother still does yoga everyday, she's In her mid 80's and as bright as a button!
Our goal is if we can make people of any age think more about their health, fitness and wellbeing and start doing something about it then we'll be happy.
Jump aboard and get the most out of your life and start inspiring others yourselves!
