@HammH It would be good for your blood sugar stabilization goals, the extra workouts.

Aging Is Not The Enemy

This wonderful (and short) video lets Senior Athletes talk about why they do this, what being fit means to them.

 

 

Aging is not the enemy. Botox be damned, our bodies are designed to grow older—it’s a biological imperative. And while some write off aging as physical decline, depending on your mindset, the later years of life can actually be the most active. Those of us who never set foot on a track or stepped onto a basketball court may be athletes-in-waiting, competitors who just haven’t embraced competition, yet.

For proof, look no further than the thousands of athletes who, every year, come from their respective cities and counties to compete in dozens of sports at the Florida Senior Games. In states across the U.S., the 50-plus demographic vies not just for local titles, but for coveted qualifier spots at the biennial National Senior Games, an Olympics of sorts. The caveat: These athletes have a few more miles in their rearview (and fewer endorsement deals) than the Final Five or Michael Phelps.
