Why be fit after 50? For millions of people worldwide, their No. 1 reason is their grandchildren.
Being an active grandparent requires physical ability – strength, endurance, and flexibility – that you can build in a gym or fitness studio.
When the grandchild is an infant, you want to get down on the floor and back up again. As the kids grow and get heavier, you’ll pick them up and carry them around. By the time they can run, they want Grandma and Grandpa to play outside.
Get them away from screens and engage in creative play that neither of you will think about as “exercise.”
Gain confidence with strong legs, back, core, glutes, and more. We’re here to help, so come tell us about your special little ones, and we’ll get you in shape for fun, healthy activities like…
- Visiting a playground to swing, climb and help them explore.
- Hiking in a neighborhood or out of town on a trail. Look for certain wildlife or birds. Play “I Spy with My Little Eye” or scavenger hunt games.
- Bicycling – As they keep growing, think of the special times you’ll have riding together.
- Snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling – Don’t let winter keep you inside. Bundle up, stay safe, and have fun.
- Skating – Roller-skating at a rink or on your sidewalk, plus ice skating in the winter.
- Working out – If you’ve walked them to, say, gymnastics practice, sneak in your own workout if possible.
Stay fit all year long with us. You can start now by trying our 21-Day Strength and Longevity Program, and you will be able to pick them up and carry them for years to come.
