Each week I’m posting short video snippets from my PT sessions because I think we all need some extra motivation to train on Fridays.
Why 50+? Because getting older is no longer an excuse to slow down! Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle at every stage of your life.
Did you know that your metabolism will slow down as you age and building muscle will offset this by increasing your metabolism? Put simply, the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn. So incorporating some form of weight training into your exercise regime is even more important as you get older.
I hope that these videos will inspire you not just to make exercise a regular part of your life, but also to push yourself every now and then. Our bodies are very efficient and will adapt over time, so if you want to get stronger and fitter you need to get out of your comfort zone sometimes. Vary the time or intensity, or try just something new that you haven’t done before.
And please don’t forget, you’re never too old – it really is mind over matter, if you believe you can do it, then you can!!
