We were at the USA Cycling Master’s Track National Championships in Indianapolis this summer. Women are in the minority. Obviously, in the Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional category!
I reached out to Jo Johnson. Jo is a Multi time National Champion! She is 68 and began cycling in her early 50’s! She loves track racing. “Riding on banked tracks on a bike with NO Brakes is the thrill of track.” She takes her cycling very seriously and works with Coach Kim Geist. Jo has continued to improve each year and just LOVES IT! This year she has set new PR’s in all track events. Quite an accomplishment.
Nutrition is very important to Jo’s success. She is focused on keeping her blood sugar balanced. So important for all of us! It is the sweet spot we need to stay in!
This is Ingrid Rehwinkel! She is a 78 year old Tennis Pro! She is looking forward to her new age group and being able to compete against the 80 years old! She is part of my Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional Community! She brings an amazing attitude to every workout! Love her!
This summer has been the summer of Tree planting. Finding the perfect spot, digging holes and planting the trees is hard work. BIG NEWS~ I planted four trees this summer and no back pain!
As many of you know I have incorporated Foundation Training into my life and into my Fit and Fabulous Workouts. Something pretty incredible has happened because of this training. STRONG HEALTHY BACK!
My back is very strong even after years of running, jumping, mountain climbers and burpees.
I have been asked my age by my doctor and then was told that maybe I need to stop and take up a low impact exercise like swimming. I found a better way. Foundation Training. It only takes a few minutes a day.
I have worn orthotics for years and always wore shoes with support, even inside my house. Now, I can go barefoot with No BACK PAIN! Thrilling!
It is not just about exercise, It is embracing a healthy lifestyle. Eating a low-glycemic diet, pharmaceutical grade supplements and exercise.
This is Penny Northrup Kirk! She is Fit and Fabulous! Penny is 65 years old! I have learned so much from her. The greatest message to remember. “It is possible!” I have 3 more years to work on the inverted shoulder press! I am not sure I will be doing them in a bikini. You never know!
Penny has also taught me that it is possible to eat more fat and lose excess fat along the way.
Do you have reoccurring back issues? Have you bent over to pick up something and your back was in excruciating pain? I have!
Over the years, I have seen Doctors, Chiropractors,physical therapists, massage therapist and acupuncturists. I would go swimming. I would do yoga. I would take powerful muscle relaxants. Ice, heat…I did it all. I still would have reoccurring back problems.
Two years ago, I discovered Foundation Training which is the work of Dr. Eric Goodman. I integrate Foundation Training into everyone of one my workouts. My back is stronger and I am more flexible! I am not in pain. When I do too much and I feel the tightness creeping back, I spend ten minutes doing Foundation Training. SO much better… It works!
From one of my workout ladies,”I moved 8 yards of mulch yesterday and my back did not hurt. Your workouts are working!”
I would love for all of you to come to my workouts. I promise you , your back will become stronger and perhaps pain free.
I feel a shift. It is all coming together. In the flow… 2 months ago I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I put coconut oil in my coffee and avocados in my morning smoothie. I have decreased the waffles, bread and pasta in my life. AND THE BLESSING ? It has been easy.
The Benefits? I feel good, I am sleeping better, NEWS FLASH… sometimes through the night! I have lost a few pounds. The bloat is gone and my menopausal belly is shrinking. BONUS ROUND. I am off my bio-identical hormones! Friends are starting to tell me that I LOOK GREAT!
I am not telling you all of this to brag. I am telling you this because it is possible for you too!
More info? Here is a video that I created for Team Northrup and the MY JUMP START program. (The 7 day JUMPSTART Kit is coming out soon.)
I will keep you posted. Are you looking for an excellent protein base now? 0 grams of sugar. I have been using the soy base this week. I know it is non-gmo and Pure! It is good to switch things up.
Jump around squats! Now, there is a good time! Here is a fabulous HIIT workout!
2o minutes and your are done! Make sure and warm up ahead of time. I took George the dog for a walk. I always like to finish my workouts with Eric Goodman’s Foundation Training.
Are you interested in trying the 0 grams of sugar protein shake? I have been making Thomas the plant based with the chocolate flavor packet. I throw in a banana for sweetness. Delicious and Nutritious!
Set your self up right in the morning… start your day off with a delicious protein shake, coconut oil in your coffee, take super high quality supplements and do your HIIT!
Here is an eight minute HIIT (high intensity interval workout for you). I watch these workouts online , mostly demonstrated by ripped young men. I think it is important for you to know that you can do this as well. It might not be as pretty at 60 something but I get it down and reap the benefits. I hope I inspire you to give it a try. (I messed up the squat jumps the first time around, just move for those 30 seconds, try jumping jacks:)
