Calling all baby boomers: Workout tips just for you

Filed under: ,

Does it sometimes seem like the fitness industry is geared towards peppy twenty-somethings with boundless energy and enviable waistlines? Well, we're heading into a time when today's baby boomers will be retiring and starting to focus on their health, and I imagine the face of fitness will be changing too. In fact, I think it already is -- there are dozens of fitness programs, websites and DVD devoted solely to working out after 50. Like this one. And these. And these.

If you're a baby boomer who's thinking of starting or re-starting a workout routine, keep these tips in mind:
  • Stretch, to prevent injury and soreness.
  • Workout a bit every day -- don't try to compress everything into the weekend
  • Listen to your body -- stop when it's time to
  • Take lessons to ensure you do it right.
