Fitness Over 45 – Getting The Body You Want

Stop. Right. Now.

And repeat after me…

“Today I am choosing to stop using the excuse that I am too old to achieve the body that I want. Change is possible, and I have influence over how my body feels and what it looks like. I refuse to believe that my health and fitness are limited because of my age. It is within my power to cultivate the body that I know I am capable of. Today I let go of any excuses that have been holding me back, and today I choose to believe that I CAN do it.”

I also want you to ask yourself…

Do you really believe that this is the best that you can do?

Do you really believe that you are not able to become a little better than you are today?

Do you truly believe that you are “stuck” with the body that you have?

I know, without a droplet of doubt, that you have the power to become better than you are today. You have the power to take one step today that will begin to move you towards your ultimate goal.

I know this because I’ve done it, and I’ve helped thousands of women do it as well. Yes, women just like you, I promise. You’d be amazed at the transformations that I’ve witnessed over the past year. If other women can do, so can you. I promise.

It’s time for you to STOP allowing yourself little lies that keep you stuck where you are.

It’s time for you to step up and demand more from yourself.

It’s time for you DO THIS.

Now, I do need to tell you something that stings a bit when you hear it. But, you need to know this.

The longer you stay stuck, the harder it becomes to get yourself out of it.

For example, many women call me and say that they began sliding in their 30’s when they started having children. 20 years later they wake up with the realization that they’ve “let themselves go” and now they are so far from where they want to be.

The longer you slide, the harder it becomes to undo the years of neglect.

I don’t say this to discourage you. I say this to light a fire under your butt.

It’s time for you to get moving. It’s important that you start taking action today towards your ultimate goals.

You have within you the power to change yourself starting right now.

So let’s do this!

    Holly!!! I have spent the last 2.5 weeks doing a total reboot. Drastically reduced my sugar, primarily while foods, lean meats and using the macro 101 portioning. And of course I have added strength training back in as my PRIMARY workout (3-4 times a week) along with pole fitness and yoga a couple times a week as well. The change in my body is radical. You know your stuff (obviously!)!!! Thank you!

    I am 67, going on 68., and weigh 98 pounds. I lift weights every morning, put in 12,000 steps a day. I worked out with 24 year old former female college athlete and left her in the dust. I have been exercising regularly all my life, despite arthritis. Everyone could do it. Make it the number one priority in your life.

    I have all your dvd workouts and was wondering what you might recommend as a strength training program using these? I do so much better with your cues so I get form and timing right. xx

    Just getting started, and have a long road to go. I was thinking I was past the point of making a difference, but this gives me hope. I’m currently reading the 12 week head to toe transformation, and will be hitting the gym tomorrow to get going. 🤞

      And, I’m curious to hear how you’re doing! There is never a time when you are “past the point of making a difference” – you can ALWAYS make a difference and improve your body. Sending you a virtual cheer to say, “You can do it Marissa!”

    Today I have committed to take charge & change my body from head to toe hoping that the chronic debilitating excruciating pain daily will cease & I can live a long & healthy life. I weigh 227 & have shrunk from 5’9 to 5’3 from degenerative spondylosisthesis.
    I wanted 2 know where is the book you were reading in March, how can I find one? How much have you changed since you posted your msg.

      Hi Karen! Strength training is a very helpful way to reduce pain and improve the function of your body in general. Whenever I start to get aches and pains, I know that it’s time to step up my commitment to strength training. The book that my community members mention most is the book that I authored called “Lift to Get Lean” which is also sold as “The 12 Week Head to Toe Transformation” – it’s the same book. It’s a great place to learn more about strength training, and I also provide 4 strength training programs based on a survey that you take in the book. You can grab a copy on Amazon or Barnes and Noble! Hope you’re doing well and getting stronger!
