There is no better time than right now to start a fitness routine!
Fitness over 40 is a program I have created which involves exercises for each individual person, over 40, based on their fitness goals as well as their body type.
Together we will create a targeted and, as I stated, an individual fitness and nutrition program which will focus on all areas you wish to work on as well as enhance them and of course we will focus on those stubborn areas that may need a little more work 🙂
Our bodies change with age and therefore your fitness routine needs to be realistic based on your age and body type.
For instance, a lower impact, targeted resistance exercise program is much more effective for a body that is over 40. High impact exercises do not offer the same results.
Unfortunately, high impact exercises (like running) break down the body with little positive results. They also can result in an injury to our muscles, tissues and even bones if we are not careful. So something like Crossfit can be dangerous and is known for many issues like muscle tears.
So a good exercise routine should consist of an hour of cardio multiple times per day, 5 days a week with some resistance exercises, light weight training and a 20 minute yoga routine. This is a much more effective workout and provides proven results over a longer period of time vs. going to the gym daily and pounding away on a treadmill or spin class.
Morning: Walk 25 minutes either outside or on treadmill; do 15 minutes of yoga stretches and some light weights (multiple exercises/multiple reps)
Afternoon: Take a lunchtime walk before you eat (starts the fat burn process)
Evening: Go for a walk / jog, or use the elliptical; do a 25-40 minute resistance or boot camp routine; end with 20 minutes of yoga stretches
Doing this 5 – 6 days a week will change your life
Again, the workouts will be tailored to your fitness goals and those stubborn areas you wish to work on.
- if you are looking to strengthen your core, we will create your routine to accomplish this with strict core exercises mixed with some resistance training and light weights.
- want to tone that butt of yours, we will work in a number of squat exercises with a fantastic Barre routine.
- need to lengthen and tone as well as get a good work out? Power Yoga/Barre is your modality.
We will work together, as a team, to get you started on your fitness goals which will also include a comprehensive nutrition program as well.
No, you do not have to buy special meals or supplements from me. We will simply talk about healthy eating habits as well as what supplements may be right for you (you will purchase them when and where you are happy doing so).
I specialize in living a healthy and empowered life and in my experience you accomplish this by being a whole healthy being…emotionally, physically and spiritually.
