Bellevue Personal Training | Fitness is About More than Six Pack Abs and Huge Muscles!

For many people (especially those over 60!) fitness is about being healthy, keeping disease away, and feeling good about yourself. Here’s an interesting perspective, from Marc Middleton, founder and CEO of Growing Bolder, who is intent on changing the way the world looks at aging by smashing stereotypes: “To anyone out of college, fitness is health, wellness, energy, stamina, stability, and movement—the qualities that lead to active longevity and the opportunity for travel, hiking, adventure, dancing and more into our 80’s and 90’s. Show us a fitness program with real people that facilitates active living into our 80’s and 90’s, as opposed to one that suggests the outcome will be the ability to parade our sexy, oiled bodies on the beach.” 

The benefits of growing older are many: Maturity, creativity, perspective, experience, wisdom, and legacy. Many folks that are 65 and older report feeling very good about this stage in their lives. There are stereotypes that still abound that reflect prejudice towards elders. The good news is that things like illness, pain, fatigue, anxiety, impotence, mental decline, feeling useless, isolation, and depression can ALL be positively impacted by the right exercise/movement program. It’s important to find movement that you are able and willing to do, that also provides a social outlet and creates bonds with like-minded people. Then success is assured! This is where a health and fitness professional can be an invaluable asset.
