Gymchat 182 - Exercise and Aging

It's never too late to start.


A Quick Invitation : this week we'll be talking about an area that impacts all of us in very subtle ways - Exercise and Aging. See you there.

As we live longer and longer, the active part of that - the healthspan, if you like - also grows.

One of the outcomes from this is that people are now beginning their own strength-training journeys at a variety of ages - it's entirely reasonable to begin at age 8 or 80; or anything inbetween.

This week we're taking a close look this 'training at any age' philosophy. If you're already in your 50s/70s/90s or beyond, how do you start? What sorts of things should you - and could you - be doing?

And for those of us that haven't quite reached those points yet, how do we make sure we're still ready for the heavy stuff when we get there?

Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine. Fantastic.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
