Not according to this guy!
Sure we will change with age but can we reverse the aging process? I am working on that problem as are many more folks like me. Once I approached 50, I started thinking in terms of what my life would be like for the next 20 or 30 years, if I'm blessed to live that long. I decided I wanted to make the best of it and I started training in Aikido, then Combat Hapkido. My job is also very physical so I had to get into much better condition just to keep up with all I had going. Not to mention the fact that I have seen too many people eat themselves into oblivion in these later years and become so out of shape that they can't even walk up a small flight of steps without needing oxygen. I knew I did not want to be like that.
My workouts were OK for a few years then I stepped it up. With the help of a personal trainer I learned new techniques to help me reach some goals. Now, with a body-weight workout of my own design, I am reaching goals and going beyond!
You can too! As I have said many times all you need to do is get your mind right. Once you find the proper motivation it is ON! I still remember one evening several years ago I was having a cold beer with a friend and I told him when I reached 50 I wanted to be in the best shape of my life. His response? He laughed...
Now, at 53 I can honestly say I am in the best shape of my life and intend to keep pushing until I see just how fit I can be.
What's your motivation?
