  1. Breaking the Age Barrier at the National Senior Games

    If you think you’re too late for athletic competition, track & field events, and chasing gold medals, the athletes of the National Senior Games have a message for you: Get over it! More than 11,000 athletes over 50 are gathering in Pittsburgh this month to compete for medals in about two dozen sports, including pickleball, […]

  2. Gardeners Dig Functional Fitness

    Deidra Champagne spends all day making beautiful floral arrangements at her business. And in her off-time, she’s at the gym, staying strong, limber, and fit for the demands of running her shop and enjoying her vegetable garden at home. Deidra, 61, has been working out with resistance and cardio training for more than a decade. Her main […]

  3. It’s Cheaper to be Healthy Than It Is to be Sick

    If you think it’s expensive to eat right and exercise regularly, just consider the cost of being cheap with your health. For example, some people drink so many sodas that eliminating them could save almost $1,000 a year. That’s from health coach Kathryn Eyring, who presented “It’s Cheaper to be Healthy Than It Is to […]

  4. Helping Mature Women Find ‘Body-Peace’

    With so much pressure to look a certain way (usually thin and young for women), how can we maintain positive self-esteem and health simultaneously? Wouldn’t it be nice to be at peace with your body image? Counselor and nutrition expert Nina Manolson says it’s especially difficult for women, and even more so later in life. “End the […]

  5. Push-up Tests Can Signal Heart Health

    How many push-ups can you do? The answer could be helpful to keeping your heart healthy, according to a study by Harvard and other institutions published by the American Medical Association. Cardiovascular disease remains the No. 1 killer worldwide. Contributing factors include diet, smoking, drinking – and exercise. But predicting an individual’s likelihood of developing […]

  6. Strength Helps Him Be an Active Granddad

    What type of grandparent do you want to be? The strong and healthy kind that plays with the grandkids, even learning new sports later in life? Or the frail, retreating kind that sits and watches instead? Well, we all know which we would rather be: strong and healthy, right? Strength makes all the difference as […]

  7. Science Shows the Benefits of Exercise on Brain Health

    Here’s further proof that exercise is good for us, body and brain alike. In recent months, research has been published showing that exercise is the “top theoretical treatment” for Alzheimer’s disease, jibing with previous research about how it fights dementia. Moderate physical activity among mature women helps lower the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia […]

  8. Invest the Time and Money – You DO Have Both!

    Here’s the thing about excuses: They’re nonsense. (There’s another popular term we won’t use here.) Do you ever find yourself saying you “don’t have time or money to take care” of yourself? How about “I’m too old” for good measure? Those are the most common barriers to fitness that we hear. They are all NONSENSE. […]

  9. Physical Exercise Is Essential for Mental Health Too

    At every stage in life, physical health is tied to mental health. When we feel good physically, we’re more likely to feel good mentally, as well. And with dementia, depression, anxiety, and loneliness higher among people later in life, this is one more reason to get or stay physically fit. The World Health Organization has […]

  10. Studies Link Obesity to Smaller Brains

    Being obese means having a bigger body, of course. But research indicates it also means having a smaller brain – and a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. “The more we understand about (body fat), the clearer it becomes that belly fat is its own disease-generating organism,” said Dr. Lenore Launer in a statement by […]
