Originally, when I began writing my blog, my demographic was the Over-70 age group. However, I have since had many requests for help from those in their 50’s and 60’s.
Accordingly, I decided – beginning with blog #6 – to change to Over50andfit.
Pilates is a system of low-impact controlled exercises designed to improve core strength, mobility and flexibility: all of the body’s muscles are engaged. This system is comprised of precise moves, a focus on form and specific breathing techniques. I incorporate several of these exercises in my own fitness regimen.
The negative health consequences of prolonged sitting accumulate when your body chronically remains in the same position with little or no movement for extended periods of time.

Previously, I have focussed exclusively on physical fitness. Based on popular demand, going forward I want to cover total fitness – not only physical, but also mental, emotional, relationship and financial fitness. In this blog, I will talk about mental fitness, specifically memory.
Today I am focussing on cycling. As we mature, we can lose some balance so I will make stationary bicycles our focal point. By doing this, we will not have to worry about balance to the same extent as riding outdoors. In addition, we avoid potential hazardous traffic and weather conditions.
Hiking for over-50’s can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a challenge if you have not hiked before. Hiking is an extension of walking, and hiking will also follow naturally. This blog is mainly intended for those who have never hiked before or those who have not hiked for a long time.
