aging-well-800x250

Every time I hear the phrase, “well I used to be able to…” I chuckle. I am guilty of it myself. We can all remember a time when we excelled at a sport or some activity or simply moved faster and had more energy for a longer period of time. And now we wonder if it’s behind us. But do we have to lose it as we age or is exercise the fountain of youth? Well as it turns out, it’s not exercise alone. And it’s not our age but rather our drive that makes the difference. If we want to, we can, despite our age and countless studies have proven so.

So the next time you think you can no longer do push-ups, think again. If you choose it you won’t lose it! And Go!Conditioning will be here to encourage, enlighten and provide you with a wealth of practical information, scientific results, and facts on how to do just that!

Can you be faster and stronger after 50?

Absolutely!

I recently had the opportunity to meet Margaret Webb
the Toronto author of “Older, Faster, Stronger”. It was great to chat
with her about her year training to run marathons for the first
time. I was surprised to find how emotional I became by her
accomplishments and that of the women who inspired her.

In the conversation that follows we concentrated on some practical
advice she offered on how to get motivated.

Although her book focuses on running, Margaret offers guidance and insight
on what it takes to start any physical activity. It’s a great read.
I highly recommend it.  You can find it here:

Here’s the interview.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did speaking
with her.
