I was a teacher most of my life and in fairly good shape. Rather thin, if anything. Middle age hit, and with it came medical issues, a sedentary administrative job and lots of stress. Boom. Disturbing weight gain, unexplained aches and pains, fatigue. When I retired, I was taking care of very frail, elderly parents and saw what was ahead of me. Heck, I was not going gently into that good night without a fight. My weight and how I was reacting to stress were the results of my poor choices, and that had to stop.
I made do-able healthy changes to my diet. No fads! I got off the couch and started walking. When a plateau hit, I got a knowledgeable, effective personal trainer. Wow, did he make a difference! I was hooked. I had to share this with others! I was pushing 70 and doing amazing workouts. We can't stop the years, nor some conditions we are predisposed to have, but we DO have the chance to make things better for ourselves.
When he left for medical school, I went back to school myself. My goal was to be as effective as he was. I was coming to this game late in life and knew that most (but not all) of my clients would be seniors with medical or orthopedic issues. I researched advanced certifications so that I can do all I can to help them improve their health, their movement, their quality of life. Never stop learning!
And I'm having a blast. I'd be lying if I said I didn't gain a little bit of the weight back. That's actually normal, some of it is additional muscle, and I'm still in good shape. I love working with others to get them to be the best they can be. Even is someone comes to me with disabilities, there are improvements we can make. You'd be surprised. Time is a-wasting. I never regretted the day I got going! And many Millennials don't realize they are already losing bone mass. You have to keep exercising. Make time for yourself. And don't use age or limitations as an excuse. Find a trainer who can meet your needs!!!
