Proper fitness is a woman’s critical connection to her best self…
It is one of the essential ways for her to protect, honor and optimize her body and mind for living with strength every day, and for years to come.
The actions of fitness (properly structured exercise) should provide a place where her body and mind can work together in a pleasant and enjoyable way. If the venue or method is not enjoyable, then there is an inherent obstacle that will take her off her desired path of wellness, longevity and optimal health.
A fitness program that hurts, feels isolating, and is just not enjoyable is most likely going to end by putting the woman back at the starting point again, still searching for “the right thing to do”.
“Letting Yourself Go” Is a Choice, But it Can Be REVERSED
But, it doesn’t have to end that way. Let me show you…
First we’ll list the common struggles of the average, middle-aged woman. Because it is these ongoing issues that falsely make a woman feel “older” than she actually is, and they are what falsely mask her youthful characteristics and drain her true zest for living life the way she “really” wants to.
Typical Complaints of Mature Women
1 – Gaining more weight every year (clothes getting tighter, etc)
[ SIDE NOTE: While some women actually never gain excess weight, they still do “get out of shape” and unhealthy. Their muscles start to deflate and sag, their skin gets loose, they feel weak, depressed and without their mojo, etc.. Some describe it as being “skinny fat”. But the majority of women in middle-age do struggle with the gradual increase of more and more body-fat. Not only is it asking for an early death but it makes every day an uphill battle physically, mentally and emotionally. ]
2 – Feeling very sluggish and low on energy
3 – Aches and pains that never seem to go away
4 – Decreasing ability to move with ease
5 – Brain fog and slower mind function
6 – Depressed, moody, less desire to be social
7 – Need for more medications to treat various conditions
8 – Fearful of what her future looks like…
The list is longer but the message is clear…
But what about the woman who DOES try some of the traditional fitness offerings out there, and then experiences injury, ongoing discomfort, more weight gain and bulkiness, or just flat out lack of desired results to warrant the stressful & unrealistic efforts?
The answer is simple: When we do the ‘wrong thing’, we will not get the desired results and outcome. In fact, we often get the opposite, with things getting worse. This is a VERY common story among many women who’ve made sincere attempts to get herself back.
Which takes us into the critical info of this article:
What Is a Woman to Do, In Order to Regain Her Health, Wellness and Youthful Energy for Life?
First let’s highlight some of the fitness offerings a woman must avoid:
The “Mature” Woman SHOULD NOT Do The Following Workouts
1 – Gym-style, weight-lifting and traditional machines (weight stack, cable/pulley, etc..)
2 – HIITcamps (aka fitness boot camps)
3 – Crossfit
4 – Tabata
5 – Or any other high-impact, fast-paced, high risk, highly strenuous type of fitness program…
Those ARE NOT for you. That kind of wear and tear on the body (and mind) is totally unnecessary, because there are other ways to reactivate, reawaken and reignite the body’s dormant potential and capabilities…
The correct approach to proper fitness for middle-aged women should:
A – Burn away the excess body-fat:
BENEFITS = disease/health risk decreases dramatically; can fit into smaller clothes, comfortable in “cuter” outfits, etc…
B – Rebuild lost muscle-tone:
BENEFITS = body regains shape, firmness and perkiness; feel better being naked, better body image, improved strength and stamina
C – Improve balance and agility:
BENEFITS = ability to participate in fun activities, decreased risk of injuries
D – Rejuvenate her dormant ‘mojo’:
BENEFITS = increases natural appeal & attractiveness, more ‘youthful’ zest and enhanced intimacy
E – Increase self-confidence:
BENEFITS = greater enjoyment of life, desire to do things you feared in the past
F – Renew a sense of ‘life control’:
BENEFITS = less stress and drama in your life, more time to spend where you want and how you want
G – Enhance moods and happiness:
BENEFITS = greater emotional stability, friends and loved ones want to be around you more and they are also positively affected as well
H – Reignite her joy for life:
BENEFITS = less worrying about everything, finding joy in little things as well as bigger things
I – Reawaken the woman her family needs, and wants, the most:
BENEFITS = you feel valued, special and loved and you live with a level of vitality and positivity that enhances the lives and spirits of those closest to you
In essence, the right method can put a woman back in touch with herself, her “true” self. It can reconnect her mind with her body and make them work as one again and in effect, reawaken her true spirit – the real her.
And it can do so without the agony, the pain, the discomfort and the dread that comes with anything we hate doing. All it takes is a properly matched fitness program that addresses her most pressing needs…
Here are the critical components to a Female Focused Fitness Program for “Mature” Ladies:
1 – Low-Impact: So, instead of a HIIT exercise program, she wants to follow a LIIT based method (LIIT stands for Low-Intensity Interval-Training)
2 – Controlled, slower movements, instead of high-paced, high-risk movements
3 – Whole-body approach with emphasis on female problem-areas and trouble-zones
4 – Time efficient so it can be a realistic part of her weekly schedule
5 – Includes flexibility for increased range of motion and injury prevention
6 – Fun and Enjoyable, in a community of like-minded, positive-spirited women
7 – Must include support for travel, so she can stay on the program even when on the road.
8 – Must include mental stimulation, supportive atmosphere and ongoing guidance
When the above elements are included and combined, a certain type of subtle magic takes over and predictable changes and improvements begin to happen…
Improvements Trigger the Strong Desire for MORE
This then fuels the desire to continue, to want more of these positive enhancements…
In turn these changes then flow over into all other areas of a woman’s life. She begins to see herself differently, she sees the world differently… Her outlook on life becomes progressively more positive and the people around her notice the new her emerging from the shadows…
This new her is actually the youthful version of her. It’s the version she remembers from long ago, when she had more self-confidence, more happiness, more love of life, more control and more mojo…
Resurrected, Renewed, Reawakened
The youthful woman hidden inside the hardened, dark and layered shell, begins to break out of that shell, and eventually she reemerges as the wiser version of her youthful self… Fit, healthy, energetic – and a positive influence and role model to those around her.
She has found a way to fix the things that have been dragging her down. She now has what she needs to reverse the visible symptoms of premature aging and to reduce the risk of disease and age-related disability.
She now realizes that youth isn’t defined by a chronological number. It is defined by your state of mind, body and spirit. In essence, she chooses “how young” she wants to be.
A proactive approach to proper fitness & wellness is one of those key choices, and is the critical foundation, of an optimized and balanced life… A life lived to the fullest, as it was meant to be.
I’ll close with this thought; “The woman who has her health has a thousand wishes – the woman who doesn’t, has only one wish.”
