The good news: as we leave our 30s, we start to lose muscle mass at a rate of approximately 3%-8% each decade but ONLY if we don’t exercise.

The good news: inflammation is part of our body’s normal processes, but some of it changes from potentially harmful to beneficial when we exercise.
The bad news: ‘use it or lose it’ is true. If you don’t exercise, your body will maintain less active muscle tissue.
The good news: you can change that each and every time you exercise. Your muscles are not gone: they’re hibernating. Wake them up!
Now that it’s practically spring, it’s time to wake yourself up & get moving. ANY movement you do will bring improvements. If you don’t walk & can – start walking. This pandemic may still be with us, but fresh air and sunlight are out there – go get yourself some!
To celebrate the return of spring, I’m crafting another founders’ challenge. This one is specifically geared towards 60-70+ and/or breast cancer patients/survivors (since I want to start building exercise programs specifically for this group). The format is 100% online. More details to come!
