Exercise can be daunting at any age, but for those 50+, it can become even more physically challenging with each ensuing decade.
Even if you’ve been an exercise maven all your life, age can take a toll on the body and you may eventually find your favorite fitness activity become painful or even impossible to maintain. Still, as the aches and pains set-in, it’s important to stay physically active.
If you’ve never exercised routinely in the past, now is the time to start. Exercise has been shown to improve health and reverse some of the symptoms of aging—and who doesn’t want that.
But, it’s not easy to find a fitness plan that doesn’t involve high impact, strenuous activities that tend to jar or stress aging joints.
Several women in Howard County say they have found the perfect solution to getting and staying fit. It’s the ForeverStrong™ Fitness System. It’s safe, doable and achieving some amazing results for those training in their 50s, 60s and 70s.
Marsha, 72, who never exercised regularly before she started the ForeverStrong™ system, boasts that trips to her chiropractor are now monthly, instead of weekly. She lost 13 pounds and lowered her blood pressure. “I can squat in the bathtub again and not feel pain,” Marsha said.
That’s because ForeverStrong™ is purposefully designed to help improve health problems that women face as they age, such as back pain, weak knees, limited range of motion in joints, imbalance, low energy, abdominal fat, high blood pressure, loss in bone mass, and declining strength and coordination.
Sara, age 61, who took yoga, Pilates and cardio classes over the years, never noticed any improvement in her fitness. But she did with ForeverStrong™. “My core is stronger, my balance is very improved and my spine is much more flexible. That makes it wonderful for daily living.”
ForeverStrong™ works because it is not a cookie cutter fitness solution, according to its creator, Kelly Scott. “Each client gets individual, progressive strength training with a high intensity interval routine, which we continuously adapt as strength increases.”
The personalized approach was exactly what Patricia, age 67, was looking for. “At my age, I wanted a fitness program designed specifically for me to help me gain strength and get better muscle tone. With ForeverStrong™, my legs and arms are stronger, my body is better toned and I lost weight–which made my doctor happy.”
Another benefit when training with ForeverStrong™ is that it’s a more efficient workout that can be done in less time. Most people see results with only two-three one hour sessions per week.
“It’s a great way to get a whole body workout in a relatively short period of time and it’s never boring,” exclaims Renee, age 56.
Dana, age 66, said when she started the program she was out of shape and overweight. Now, as a result of the ForeverStrong™ system, she has more energy, more flexibility and lost weight. Dana said, “Once you start, you’ll love it.”
Eleanor, age 79, received an excellent report from her doctor at her last physical check-up and she attributes it to being with the program for 3 ½ years. She lends some advice to others, “It’s never too late for those over 55 to get with it.”
