stk206002rkeLooking younger is a multi billion dollar business, from botox, to implants, to body lifts, to skin creams.  It seems the world just doesn’t want to look or feel old.

While all of the above techniques can help, I have one that works far better than all of those!  Live a life of healthy eating and consistent exercise!  One of my heroes and mentors Jack LaLanne is living proof that age is just a number!

One important thing that I believe in so strongly is strength training.  It becomes even more important when someone reaches their 40’s and 50’s.  The average person loses half a pound of muscle each year after the age of 25.  Muscle creates shape, muscle creates tone, muscle makes everything you do easier, and muscle helps keep your metabolism elevate.

I like to showcase some of my clients who are living proof of what I believe.  Today, I would like to introduce you to Beth.  Beth is 49 and a mother of 4 kids.  She has been very faithfully attending MamaTone now for over 1 year, and even though she never had a weight issue, she has transformed her body into a lean tight body that could easily pass for a 30 year old.

Beth tells everyone who comes to MamaTone that even more important that the physical changes she has seen is the mental changes;  she is able to handle the stress of 4 kids that are in their teenage years as well as having more energy to keep up with her kids.

Beth has realized that taking 45 minutes for herself a couple times a week is the most unselfish thing she can do, because she now has the body and the energy and the patience to be the best mom, wife, and friend possible.

Here is Beth and I on the NBC Morning Show!

What do you think?  Do you think your 40’s and 50’s and even 60’s can be your best years?  What have you found to work best?
