Throughout your life, you’ve known the benefits of exercise, good nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. But as you’ve grown older, you may have found that you’re just not as excited about physical activity anymore.
As you’ve progressed in years, your body has changed. You’ve noticed changes in your physical appearance – you don’t look like those young people at the gym anymore. You may have noticed a decrease in flexibility – maybe you feel you simply can’t exercise without joint or muscle pain. No doubt you’ve also felt a decrease in energy as you’ve grown older, too.
The truth of the matter is this: senior fitness isn’t about looking great in a swimsuit or running a decathlon. Senior fitness is a holistic approach to health, allowing you to maintain your independence, live longer and enjoy a better quality of life.
It may be that you feel intimidated by the younger gym crowd – after all, you’re just not interested in lifting heavy weights. Maybe you simply don’t know how to exercise correctly, or feel you may get hurt.
At DuBose Fitness, we understand all of this and we’re here to help.
