Fitness still fine as you age, of course

Filed under:

Is a feeling of weakness and old age setting in to those of you in your mid-40s? It shouldn't be, but those gray hairs and work stresses start piling up, along with a lack of time to boot. It all combines to make us feel old.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Working out and exercise is not just for twenty-somethings or high school athletes. I know a few people in their 40s that would give any 18 year-old a run for their money, odd as that may sound.

It's never to late to exercise, eat right and feel like you're 21 again. All that stamina, strength and energy is still there, but life's changes have suppressed it. But, don't make that a reason to give up. Sure, it's hard to find the time, but is it worth it to prioritize your health and well-being in middle age? Heck, it should be the top priority for many of us.
