Stop and think about activities that you no longer
participate in, what are they? Most of
us have sports that we really enjoyed up until a few years ago. For me the knees became the excuse why I
could not do many of the things I used to really enjoy. Long walks, hiking through the forest, long
bike rides. I have all those things back
in my life because I have taken the opportunity to do the exercise that has
strengthened the muscles responsible for supporting my knees.
What activities did you come up with? What would you do today, if you had everyday
strength to accomplish what gives you pleasure?
Has your doctor mentioned Sarcopenia? Do you know what Sarcopenia is? Your doctor is saying you are losing muscle. Losing muscle can literally be a pain. Everyone benefits by having everyday strength.
Maybe you are like our client Nancy:
Nancy began working with us after hearing about once a week workouts. She was convinced it was too good to be true but she was up for trying something new. Nancy had never stuck to any workout plan before. She loves walking her two dogs, but she could feel herself getting weak.
Nancy didn’t change her diet and began seeing results almost immediately. One afternoon she was moving some boxes in her attic and noticed her core was stronger! She had been timing her morning walks with her dogs as a habit. After a couple months of once a week sessions she noticed she was walking faster with less effort. Her mile times just kept getting shorter!
