Did you know that fitness for women over 50 can be efficient, effective, and fun? You betcha!

Today’s dual purpose workout is your roadmap to success for WEIGHT LOSS, improved muscle tone, and stronger bones. We’re getting in our cardio and strength, with effective moves that can increase your fitness while decreasing the number on the scale.

FITNESS OVER 50 – WHY IT LOOKS DIFFERENT

My friends, I can speak from experience here: fitness for women over 50 looks different from when we were younger. One of the changes that comes with menopause is lower estrogen levels, which plays a role in our body’s ability to recover. We can still do everything we used to, but we just don’t recover as quickly, and that lingering stress in the body can result in weight gain and other changes.

FITNESS OVER 50 – WHAT WORKS NOW

Working out moderately every day is the best way to approach exercise over 50 because it allows your body to recover between workouts. Fitness at our age includes a healthy dose of both cardio and strength, plus elements of balance. And today’s workout is the perfect mix of all three components!

FITNESS OVER 50 – HOW TO THINK ABOUT IT

Your body knows how to handle fitness over 50 while managing menopause, but maybe your brain has a different idea, am I right? Sometimes it’s hard to look back and see where we used to be compared to where we are now. This is exactly the subject of a recent episode of my podcast (Fitness Matters), Ep. 243: What You Used to Do. My friend, with a helpful mindset, these pre-, peri-, and post-menopausal years can be some of your best yet!

Oh, and did I mention that having FUN is the best part of fitness over 50? Yessiree! Grab your dumbbells, and let’s GO!
