As we age our freedom and independence will be, in part, determined by our ability to move how we want, when we want, where we want.
For most people, exercise and movement training has not remained on the top of our ‘to do’ list as we aged, and because of this many people in their 30s, 40s and 50s have reduced mobility.
If exercise and movement training remain ‘off the list’ then the range of movement available to us when we’re in our 60s, 70s and 80s will be severally diminished.
Good news! Some of that diminished movement range can be improved. You can teach an ‘old dog’ new tricks.
We won’t promise that you’ll be wake-boardng anytime soon, but we will say that with practice, patience and a sense of adventure, you’ll be surprised how much movement you can recover.
