Secrets to Fitness at 50

March 21, 2022

As I am moving into the last phase of my competition prep (less than two weeks to go!)

A lot of people comment on my physique and what I do to stay so fit.

  “Wow, your arms are awesome. You have great skin, what is your secret?  How can you have such a flat belly at your age?”

The comments are endless. It’s weird when something about you evokes so many questions, but I have been competing long enough (15 years to be exact!), so I am kinda used to it. 😁

And how do I answer these questions? Always with the same response: I lift weights! 🏋️‍♀️

My physique in my late 50’s is a result of years of lifting in the gym because it is my core belief (and let me be evidence to that, ha!) that nothing you can do in fitness conditioning will make you look and feel more vital and alive than strength training.

I know, I know, what about all the benefits of walking, swimming, yoga, biking? Yes, these activities are totally wonderful as well, in fact, I do them too!

But the simple truth is this: if you want to feel strong, vital, flexible, and fill out your clothes nicely, nothing offers all these benefits as much as a well-put-together strength training plan.

You don’t like to lift weights? Well, the truth is, I don’t always like doing it either! For real!

But what I do know is that nothing makes me feel healthier and more vital, youthful and might I add SEXY than a strong supple body over all other modalities of fitness.

Sure, your nutrition plays a huge part, however, I would never look and feel the way I do if the gym was not an integral part of my day for the last 35 plus years.

Want to learn more about my exercise and nutrition plan? Are you ready to be your best and most fit self? Are you ready to embrace your own sexy?

I promise you won’t regret it!

Don’t know where to start? 

  1. Ask your fit friends for suggestions on a trainer recommendation.

  2. Visit a gym-gym, less the chain gyms for a qualified trainer who knows what they are doing. Meet them and get a feel for their vibe and see if you resonate.

  3. Ask your PT or doctor for a suggestion.

  4. Get a membership to a gym and shade the door, i.e. walk through it! Please do not sign up and leave, saying to yourself you will start tomorrow! Tomorrow is not a day of the week! 

  5. Start lifting. Start where you are, but please, just start. Your body, mind, and soul will thank you!

End of rant…. 😁

Have an incredible day and until next time, be your best self. This is our one rodeo. Let’s make it count!

To your success!
