A major new study says 68 is the new 43… Is the quest for eternal youth is over?  Well, maybe not eternal youth but certainly, prolonged youth.

The medical community is embracing the concept that everyone has two ages:  your “actual” age and your “fitnesss” age.  Have you ever seen someone 40 who looks 60?  Or someone 60 that looks 45?  That’s what we’re talking about.  The younger your fitness age is compared to your actual age, the healthier you are and as you may have guessed, the longer you live.

In the upcoming Senior Olympics the average birth age of the athletes is 68.  But the athlete’s average fitness age is 43.  A stunning 25 years younger!

I know what you’re thinking – these are professional athletes and of course they are in great shape.   But many of them are not.  They all exercise routinely for sure, but most of them did not start training until after they were 50.

What can we learn from these senior athletes?  It’s never too late to start exercising and exercise in the only known process that can keep you younger, longer.  And what do you need to make exercise a part of your daily routine?  It’s pretty simple, feet, shoes and a willingness to get moving.   What are you waiting for? Do it!
