Finally, there's a day that celebrates all of us out there who are of a certain age and still staying fit and active! It's about time we show the world how we do it!
While fitness is essential for everyone, it's particularly crucial for older adults. Regular exercise can improve mobility, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and enhance overall quality of life.
If you're looking for ways to spice up your fitness routine, here are a few things that I do to keep it exciting and enjoyable.
Firstly, I always update my playlist with new songs to inspire me to move. Music has a way of making exercise more fun and motivating. Recently, I added "Ring My Bell" by Anita Ward to my playlist, and it has been a fantastic addition!
BALANCE & MOBILITY
Another way I keep my routine fresh is by attending a balance and mobility class. These classes help to improve my balance and increase my core strength. It's also an excellent opportunity to meet new people and socialize.
Stretching is also a crucial part of my routine, and I often start my day with some gentle stretching. A quick yoga class is an excellent way to get in some stretching, but if you don't want to go to class, there are plenty of great yoga videos on YouTube. I'm particularly fond of Sarah Starr's videos.
So, those are just a few ways that I keep my fitness routine exciting and fresh. However, I'm always looking for new ideas, and I'd love to hear how you shake up your routine.
Let's inspire each other to stay fit and active at any age!
