As you read this, please keep this important point in mind:
“…your age doesn’t matter.”
You might be 31 or you might be 73 – or maybe somewhere in between… But no matter what, at least one of the following 8 strengths will hit home with you – and quite possibly, all 8.
As a sedentary woman ages there are many signs and symptoms that become evident and obvious. There are also a few that are not so obvious.
Together these signs and symptoms of the aging body make the aging process feel like a fast downward spiral that cannot be slowed, reversed or corrected.
However, there is hope…
And the reason is because many of these declines and decreases are due to either a sedentary lifestyle or ineffective choices of fitness options. I’ll explain more about this shortly.
Quantifiable decreases in several key areas directly result in weakening of the body and mind. Muscle wasting, bone-density loss, joint instability, decreasing mobility, lack of energy, poor mood levels and weakening self-image are just a few items on the list of unwanted milestones of adulthood.
A Woman’s Will Is A Woman’s Way
Fortunately, for the willing woman who isn’t ready to throw in the towel, there is much to be achieved when the desire to become fit is combined with a proper approach to do so.
“When a woman follows a properly structured fitness plan, she should expect to experience strengthening of many systems and structures of her body…”
Today We Highlight 8 of the Most Important and Impactful
1 – Muscle Strength
When muscles are not used they become atrophied. “Atrophy” is the medical term for shrink or decrease. And when muscle tissue shrinks, we get weaker. In essence we become “less able”. Loss of strength means loss of ability.
This is one of the main reasons people eventually end up in assisted living homes. Simply because they can’t take care of themselves, can’t dress themselves, can’t feed themselves, can’t bathe themselves, etc…
Fortunately, muscle tissue and strength can be rebuilt at any age.
We have clients in their early 70’s who are experiencing profound improvements in muscle tone and strength. This of course leads to increased physical abilities – and a true sense of “aging in reverse”.
2 – Bone Strength
Osteoporosis is a major threat to women. In middle-age and beyond, when bones are not stimulated they, like muscle, lose density and strength.
“When bones become weak and brittle they are at higher risk for breaking…”
Some breaks can be a major setback for women. Hip fractures, for example, can lead to a cascade of other problems.
If a woman has to be off her feet for an extended about of time, mild depression can set in and to cope, she may turn to food as a pacifier. The combo of severe bed rest and increased caloric intake is an equation that can lead to a place of no return.
The key is to increase bone strength through proper and consistent exercise, instead of waiting until it is disappearing, and your doctor has to break the bad news to you.
3 – Joint Strength
Our joints consist of a combination of parts. Bones, muscle, ligaments, cartilage and tendons are the primary parts of joints.
And your body has about 360 joints…
Yes, an amazing number when you first think about it.
“But if you stop to think about all the different ways we are able to move, twist, pose and stretch – then it’s not hard to realize this is all due to the number of joints in the human body; shoulder joint, knee joints, elbows, wrists, ankles hips, etc… And those are just the large ones…”
We were built to move. But, most people move less and less as their life progresses. And when we don’t move, the body adjusts accordingly. It decreases its own ability to move based on the requirements you are exposing it to (or not).
The key is, joint strength depends on regular and consistent joint use. I want to emphasize “proper joint use”, which is very different than joint abuse. Joint abuse is what we see in the hardcore gyms, boot camps and high-intensity workout programs.
Those are not what we are promoting for increasing joint strength, because they can actually break joints down – which is not what you want.
“Joint strength and integrity come from proper use and stimulation. This is achieved by natural, gently challenging, movements that take the joints through functional range of motion. This type of mild fitness conditioning keeps the joints “younger and more capable”…
4 – Strength of Balance
When muscle strength and flexibility start to decline, so does balance. And when balance becomes a problem, the door is open for a number of tragic outcomes.
For example, poor balance can lead to a fall down a short flight of steps, and while a few bruises on the body can be easy to overcome – a blow to the head can sometimes be fatal. This happens more than most of us would imagine.
“Regaining balance comes from stimulation of the body’s balancing control system. The muscles, the brain and the neurons that all work together to keep us balanced can be enhanced and strengthened so that our balance improves, regardless of age…”
5 – Strength of Heart & Lungs
When the heart and lungs get underused, they become dormant and sluggish. They also become more prone to decay and illness. So, in addition to the loss of cardio-respiratory ability – the risk of life-threatening disease increases greatly.
Stimulation of the heart and lungs through enjoyable and consistent fitness programming keeps the cardio-respiratory system operating at optimal levels and offers us the ability to experience life in all the ways we desire.
For example, if you enjoy traveling, or some of the simple pleasures in life, such as a bike ride or a country side hike – then the strength of your heart and lungs is the key to be able to do all that…
“And when the day comes for having grandkids in your life – would you rather them be pushing you around in a wheelchair? Or would you rather be chasing them around, laughing and playing without restrictions?”…
6 – Strength of Mind
Strength of mind comes in many forms. Let’s just take “positive mindset” for this example.
“With a weak body and poor levels of physical and emotional fitness – the natural tendency is for one to live with a negative mindset. A negative mindset fuels negativity in one’s life…”
Do you see that connection?
On the other hand, physical and emotional strength – derived from participation in a properly structured fitness program, fuels a positive mindset and therefore a positive approach to life and interaction with others.
This “strength of mind” carries over into all aspects of life, both consciously and subconsciously. This is in addition to the studies that have proven the increase of mental acuity and abilities that come as a result of proper physical fitness habits.
7 – Strength of Spirit
When everything gets weak, and we lose our abilities. We get gloomy and dejected. Our spirit gets deflated and we lose “our essence”, we lose the spark of life that makes us unique and we lose that zest for living with a level of energy that emulates happiness.
A weakened spirit fuels an unhappy life.
Fortunately, turning this around is not a hard to do…
When we take control of our body, our wellness and our fitness we regain self-confidence and self-esteem – and this fuels a stronger spirit.
We realize the quality of our life is in our hands and not left to chance.
This wakes up a dormant spirit in the most profound ways…
8 – Strength of Libido
Depending on stage of life – this one matters to some, and to other it’s “not in the picture” any longer.
That is totally understandable, but for those who still have a libido, even if it’s just barely alive – it can be strengthened profoundly when the rest of the list above is addressed.
Think about it. When all the systems of the body are strengthened, enhanced and more capable – along with the improvements of mind and spirit – the libido has no choice but to be, re-awakened, rejuvenated and boosted to levels that may bring a few surprises.
“This isn’t Fairly-Tale material. This is already proven and has been happening for years to those who’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon the simple answers that bring life-changing results…”
Life Is Profoundly Better When These 8 Strengths Improve
One might assume that a program which enhances all 8 strengths must be vigorous, complicated and time-consuming… But, the truth is – it doesn’t have to be…
“…Because, when structured properly the right fitness program for a woman can deliver all the benefits, in a fun, simplified and time-efficient method that can be followed for life…”
That is the key to envious longevity and living each day to the fullest. Together, these are nature’s path to anti-aging… what we call “Aging In Reverse” here in the studio 🙂
