The question should really be why ISN’T fitness important for you? Sure it helps me sleep better, It allows me to be around for my kids and hopefully grandkids one day, but what’s crucial to be is so I can fully enjoy my retirement at some point. Age is only a number and even though I can do all the workouts with an occasional minor modification I’ma lot stronger than I was earlier on.
I’ve been going 2 years and still love it! You have to find something you love and stick with it, for me it’s TFW.
Although, there was a time before TFW when I was feeling defeated and hopeless about some family issues, but now I know I have to put my health and fitness at the forefront to better handle whatever life throws at me…Oh and physical strength has definitely helped boost my mental strength. It’s important to me that I can feel like I can do whatever I want without my health or fitness limiting my life (So bring on the grandkids too!) …. we got this!!!
Fitness is important to me because I want to be healthy and active and not always achey! Although it may not seem like a big deal, but I have been dealing with back issues due to a bad fall over a year ago and I don’t want to get back to that.
I remember almost a year ago when I had problems doing a silly knee grab, now I can do several, and with no pain! When I think about the age old question “Where will you be years from now,” I can only hope that i’ll still be able to exercise at like I do now at 67 years young☺️.
I’m thankful for starting TFW last September because before that I was getting little results and doing very little about proper nutrition and exercise. One of the greatest things about my own fitness journey is discovering that with support around you, you can accomplish anything and will happily remind myself of that down the road. 💛🖤💛🖤
Fitness is important to me for so many reasons! For optimum health, to keep my energy level high and my stress level low, and I want to look my best! If I have it my way I want to look better in my late 50’s than I did in my late 30’s!
I had a decent energy level before TFW, but I have even more now even though I am older. The workout’s not only energize, but because of them they have also alleviated my chronic back pain from surgery many years ago and for the first time in my life I can do a chin-up!
I think as long as my mind stays strong I will never give into the aging process, I will never settle for a “silver sneaker” program, and I want to feel exactly the same as I do now if not better and I want to be able to keep up with my grandson regardless of his age!
