At the Transformation Center in Madison, McFarland, and Oregon, we help hundreds and hundreds of clients each week improve their mindset, provide them with meal plans and recipes, deliver fun and challenging fat burning workouts and create an environment of positive support and accountability. The average age of our client is between 47-50 years old.
This coming Sunday, I am holding another FREE Fit and Fabulous over 50 workshop at the TC at 5:30 pm. Since I started doing these free workshops 5 months ago, I have had over 200 attend and no one has left without a big smile on their face. Why? Because we make it fun, which is what exercise should be. Besides the workout, we talk about and provide a plan for making the participants’ M50’s and 60’s much healthier and fitter than their 40’s. Click here for a short video from last workshop.
Also, if you are 50 and over and would like to learn more about our exclusive Fit and Fabulous over 50 small private group training program, I have a simple form for you to fill out and I will be personally calling and meeting with you to see how I can help you. We currently have 3 spots that have opened up for the private training program.
Each person that I meet with for a consult for the Fit and Fab over 50 program is given a free copy of the NYT best seller: Younger Next Year. In the book, the two authors share 3 things you MUST start doing once you turn 50 to slow the “rotting” process as they put it.
#1 Exercise 6 days per week. This isn’t negotiable. The six days should be a combination of cardio days and strength training days. Your cardio activity needs to be intense enough that it is difficult for you to say a full sentence without taking a breath. Golf doesn’t count, sorry. Neither does a slow to moderate walk. Lifting challenging weights is the other exercise recommendation.
#2 Reduce processed foods to a minimum. Drink plenty of water and watch your added sugar intake. This advice is good for everyone.
#3 Maintain strong relationships. The book focuses a lot on this as one of the keys to living a long and happy life. While they are big proponents in being married to a partner, they say the key is to have a handful of really strong friends that you can go out with, talk about anything with and support one another.
Creating these relationships around healthy physical activities is ideal. As we age our natural tendency is to go out less, move less and retract from others. We need to be doing the opposite if we don’t want to die young or be old and grumpy.
If you haven’t read the above mentioned book, I can’t recommend it enough. I have purchased over 100 copies and given them out to my clients. The book is that awesome. ->-> Click here to get a sneak peak into my most recent Fit and Fab workshop. <-<
As I have studied and learned more about health and fitness after 50, I have become so excited about the possibilities for my life and the lives of anyone over that age. There is so much potential, but we must put in the time and effort it will take to improve our health.
Let’s do it together!
