4 months ago Anni made the decision to start exercising. “At age 65 I decided it was now or never!”
“Once I had committed to a regular workout and a careful diet of adequate protein, plenty of veg & moderate fruit, I began to lose weight and feel great! My energy level has increased so much and I want to maintain and improve on what I have achieved so far.”
She's lost 17 lb and experienced some other awesome benefits too. “I’ve had great relief from back pain and my hips don't ache when I get up from sitting a while. Walking uphill is easier too. I also feel stronger in everyday life, more balanced, less wobbly… it’s the little things like getting up - you suddenly realize it isn't as big an effort as before”
So what does she do in her 3 times a week workout? “I know how important it is to protect my bone strength as I get older so weight bearing exercises are an essential part of my workout." She loves squats and uses resistance machines, walks on the treadmill and does mat work.
