Is It Too Late?

So you want to start working out, but you’ve never committed to any type of exercise program before. Or maybe you have, but it’s been years since then and you’ve gained a few pounds. Maybe your back is tight and you have a tough time tying your shoes, or you get out of breath walking up the stairs. And now that you’re a little older, you’re concerned that you’ve missed your window to get back in shape. Is it too late for you?


Yes, it is true that you can lose muscle mass as you grow older, your metabolism can slow down, and your joints can become tight from years of sitting hunched over a keyboard — but that isn’t the end of the story. Do you want to know the best way to fight it? DIET AND EXERCISE. Eating protein, fruits and veggies, moving with purpose, and getting sweaty can significantly slow down the effects of aging. Depending on where you are in your fitness journey, you could get in even better shape than you were 10 years ago!

No matter how old you are - 15 or 50 - you can make progress. You can feel better. You can lose weight. You can gain strength and flexibility. You can achieve your goals. All you have to do is take a small leap. I know the first step is scary, so that’s why we offer a FREE No Sweat Intro to simply talk about your goals (link is on our website).

It’s never too late. I don’t know who originally said it, but a great quote is “The best day to start was yesterday. The next best day is TODAY.” Yes, we all can play the “What if?” game, and wish we had done something sooner, but imagine if you started NOW… then tomorrow you can be glad you did.
