Do you look forward to exercising? Does your day not feel right if you haven’t done your exercise? Will you go to any lengths to fit in your exercise routine if something else calls on your time? Do you do a range of exercises in the three main areas you need to maintain, or develop your fitness, Endurance, Strength, Balance and Flexibility, that you really enjoy?
Well if the answer is YES, then congratulations. You are in the zone, and your health and fitness is as assured as it can be, and you will never find it a chore or make an excuse not to do it.
You have made your fitness part of you. Mentally you are focussed on it as something that you want to do, that makes you feel good. It’s an important part of your “me time”! And this will never change.
You will always look for other things that will add to your already enjoyable experience of keeping fit, and you will never let it become boring because in so many ways, everyday now in your 50’s and beyond, you are, and will, reap the benefits.
If you answered NO, you can change all that NOW! If you’re serious about your health and fitness you will be thinking, yes that’s what I want to do, that’s where I want to be.
Well what will make this change for you? I’ve said it before and there is no other way to say it, just “Jump in”! There’s no right or wrong way to get going. Just get going NOW! There’s a lot of information on this website to help you.
If you’ve got an old injury don’t let that stop you, you can work around that. If you haven’t exercised before, oh yes there are a lot of people who haven’t, you’re not by yourself, or, maybe it’s been a long time, the big difference is you’re about to do something about it. Three tips to get going:
1. Go and have a check-up with your Doctor first. (Prioritise your fitness)
2. Start to do some slow, warming and stretching exercises. (Getting in the zone)
3. Power-walk one mile per day (Endurance).
Please let me know if this has helped you get in the zone. If you’re already there, maybe you’d like to share your Journey to fitness at 50 and beyond.
