Did you know that maintaining key elements of fitness such as flexibility (touching your toes), balance (standing on one leg) and cardiovascular fitness are essential to aging well? If you can’t do these things now, you might want to try. Gaining flexibility and strength as well as losing weight becomes increasingly difficult with age. If you are interested in maintaining any level of activity as you age such as golf or biking, think about incorporating functional fitness into your routine. Things like squats, toe touches, getting up and down from the floor, standing on one leg, etc. These small things can make a world of difference when you are 70. It’s never too late to plan ahead. Any of our personal trainers at Phoenix Fitness would be happy to help!
