Fitness For The Elderly Is An Achievable Goal With Isometric Exercise

Aug 17, 2007
Fitness isn't just about vanity - it's a necessity for maintaining an active, independent lifestyle in one's elder years. Isometric exercise makes it possible.

Many people think that the current "fitness craze" is all (and only) about vanity. Vanity may well be part of it - after all, we all enjoy looking our best -- but it's by far not the most important reason to get in shape and stay physically fit.

Did you know that after the age of 65, a good portion of the population can't lift even five pounds over their heads? If you're thinking, "So what? Who wants to life weights, anyway?" just consider this:

A five-pound bag of sugar. You have to stoop to pick it up from the lowest shelf in the supermarket ... you have to put it in your shopping cart ... heft it up onto the conveyor belt at the checkout counter ... put it in your car ... carry it into your house ... and, finally, put it up on a shelf in your pantry.

That's five times you'll have to lift that five-pound bag of sugar in under an hour. Not to mention the stooping necessary to pick it up the first time. If you can't manage to handle the groceries, how in the world are you going to manage maintaining an independent lifestyle as you age?

The sad fact is that if your level of physical fitness deteriorates too much, you won't be able to. You'll need assistance to do the kinds of things you do automatically, without thought or stress, today. But take heart. Because if you're thinking this means you'll have to join a gym and start torturing yourself with hideously difficult and painful exercises, the good news is that you absolutely don't.

An isometric exercise training DVD is all you need to get on the fast track back to a level of fitness that will enable you to enjoy your independent life, no matter what your age.

With an isometric exercise DVD, you'll be taught several simple, non-stressful exercises and breathing techniques that won't leave you sore, sweaty and exhausted; instead, you'll feel a renewed burst of energy and fitness, almost from the start. With a week, you'll even begin to notice pounds melting away, and a different look and feel to your physique.

Not that any of us are going to be mistaken for Mr. or Ms. America in our elder years - but you can darn sure give them a run for their money in the vigor, energy and fitness department! If you do the simple isometric exercises found on your DVD for just ten minutes a day, that bag of sugar will never cause you any trouble whatsoever ... nor will any of the other simple, daily tasks of everyday living.

Besides being simple, easy and non-stressful, with your isometrics DVD you can exercise in the privacy and comfort of your own home ... any time you choose ... for as long as you choose ... dressed however you feel like dressing. There won't be a bunch of 30-something gorgeous bodies parading around to discourage you ... no audience ... no pressure.

Stay fit with isometrics. A training DVD is all you need to get yourself back in the kind of shape you remember, and that you'll need to maintain an active, independent lifestyle far into your senior years.
