10/16/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

Fitness is the key at any age!  Not only will an exercise routine help you achieve more sculpted arms, a leaner figure, and more energy (at ANY AGE).  It will help you with your balance and mobility, at any age. 

“You start young to stay young” says Paul Frediani, Master Trainer and author of Power Sculpt for Women.  But it’s never too late to begin. 

Your 20’s is a good time to begin healthy habits (as well as eating clean).  This age is the time a lot of people pack on weight due to new freedoms, little free-time to exercise and make homemade meals, and generally poor ‘college life’ eating habits.

Your 30’s is often filled with more family obligations and balancing those needs of others, work and even school which leads to less free time for workout. You have to make the time.

Your 40’s is a time when your muscles feel tighter.  Pilates and yoga are really helpful to elongate those muscles and keep your flexibility.  Keep your metabolism stoked with weight baring exercises.

In your 50’s and beyond, energy goes down and joints seem to ache.  Don’t stop moving!  Walking or water aerobics will help keep your muscles toned and elastic.*

It’s good to put good habits for eating and exercising in place at an early age, but it’s never too late to begin!

*Before starting any new workout program, check in with your doctor to make sure you have the medical ok to begin.  Also, begin slowly and build up with the amount of time you do aerobic exercise and the weights you use in weight training.

I couldn't help but notice that you stopped at the 50's. What about the 60's. 70's and 80's?
