In the ever-changing world of health and fitness, there’s always something new. The good thing is that we always have fresh new stuff to try! With new ways of looking at exercise, we are able to take stock of our own health and fitness level.
As we age, we start to look for the fountain of youth. Gray hair, wrinkles, and sore joints begin to creep in and take over. And then the aches and pains settle in, taking longer to go away, and somewhere along the way we come to the realization (or maybe “grudging acceptance” is a better description for it), that we’re not going to stay young forever.
But aging doesn’t have to be such a downer though; there is a lot of goodness that comes with being a little more… experienced…in life.
Having a long and fruitful relationship with exercise helps to keep things fresh, keep you in touch with your body, and explore your own boundaries. Fitness is all about reaching a little further- running a little harder, lifting a little more, and generally being better than we were yesterday. And that’s just one reason why HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) may be your next best thing, even as you get older.
