The one thing I am begging women over 50 to do is EXERCISE!!! As a personal trainer and fitness coach I have seen what happens if you don’t keep moving your body. You gain weight, your body may ache more, you may lose muscle mass and/or bone density and worse yet you might not be able to do the things you love to do. I’m not talking about running marathons or doing the latest CrossFit routines. I’m talking about moving enough so your heart beats a little faster, lifting some light weights to keep the muscles strong and stretching to keep you limber. As the saying goes… if you don’t use it YOU WILL LOSE IT.
Instead of spouting off why you should try a FREE 7 Day Trail of the Be Healthy Enough Online Exercise Platform here are real life stories from several of my members to prove that it is a MUST if you are over 50!
Barbra (Member since May 2021) “I signed up for the 7-day trial and today did my first group of new exercises. There is so much fitness information on You tube and online but yours is so well-thought out and presented. It’s really the gold standard for FITNESS (especially for ‘women of a certain age!’). I did a few routines over the last few days – you truly inspired me to get moving.”
Albertine (Member since Nov 2020) “First of all I just want to say thank you for all of the awesome workouts that you plan for us. I started working out with you in April. I’m not quite 50 yet (48), but your workouts are perfect for me and they kick my butt! I don’t have to worry about getting hurt. I feel stronger and love your strength videos. I’ve advanced from 3/ 5 lbs up to 8 lbs and in the past couple of weeks, I’m up to 10 lbs for some of the exercises. I teach high school and I love your healthy enough – 30 -45 minutes a day philosophy. Some days after teaching, I have a hard time lifting my legs for cardio or HIIT workouts, but I know I’m getting stronger. Again, thank you Amy! I’m stronger and I can see and feel a difference.”
Michele (Member since June 2020) “I don’t know if you remember me from HP days about a decade and more ago, but when I recently was looking for an on-line workout I came across your post on LinkedIn. I was thrilled to see you were doing this as this was exactly what I needed! Anyhow I’ve lost 8 pounds and, for the first time in years, I have lots of movement in my shoulder! I also didn’t appreciate how important it is to stretch everyday- I’m feeling and moving a lot better. I’ve decided I’m not going back to the gym now that’s it’s opening since I think I tend to do the same things over and over, which is great for those muscles that get exercised but not so good for those that don’t. I enjoy your workouts and appreciate the variety.
Anyhow, I just wanted to say “hi” and “thank you”. I think that every time I put on a video but have just been slow to get to it! Bless you!”
If any of these stories have inspired you to get back into exercising give me a call or email me for help or guidance or help in trying one of my online workouts designed for us over 50!
