I became a personal trainer 6 years ago at the age of 54. I am stronger and in better shape now…(pushing 60). I am writing this to inspire you to get in shape at any age. I put together a fitness challenge last year for Team Northrup and I thought it would be FUN to bring it out again.
I challenge you to give it a try!
Here goes… time it and post your time. More advanced, time it for three rounds.
100 Jump rope or 100 jumping jacks
1 minute plank
touch your toes.
Health and Fitness is a life long process. 80% of your health is dependent on lifestyle choices. I think that is great NEWS! The key is to get up and start moving!
(Of course, diet and great supplements are equally as important…more on that in later posts.)
Here is the second week video in a series of 4, to get you started on an exercise program. So many commented that they watched last week’s video. FYI, you need to do more than watch if you want results. Is that mean or inspiring?
We have many women in their fifties, sixties and seventies at OutdoorFit that have transformed their bodies. They are healthy, strong and empowered. I tell people at OutdoorFit to give it two weeks and you will start to feel a difference.
Please let me know how you are doing! I love hearing from you!
Here is a series of 4 exercises that will strengthen your core and get you moving!
First take your 20 minute walk and then do two rounds of the 4 exercises.
30 seconds each…two rounds!
full body extension…(come up on your toes)
knee to elbow
jumping jacks (an old time favorite)
We are starting our program with a 20 minute daily walk. This morning I woke up to a foot of snow and 16 degrees. George my dog is a nag and doesn’t care what the weather is. He is always up for a hike outside.
It is so important to get outside and exercise! It boosts your immune system, helps you to beat the winter blues and the winter fat!
Here is a short inspirational video to get you moving. Please post in the comments below that you went for you walk!
