Incredibly Fit at 62 [What to eat and how to train]

Your questions about Aging and Living Lean answered!

You’ve met my mama before on this channel with a video we did last year, and after that came a flood of questions.

Today we are answering a bunch of viewer questions for my Mom about how she’s managed to stay so fit into her 60’s.

You’ll see her busting out some some killer pushups, amazing jumping exercises and more.

It simply isn’t true that Living Lean is only for the young.

There is no age limit to making physical progress and eating for optimal wellness.

Of course there are differences as we age but those differences don’t have to mean game-over.

Come listen and watch as my 62 year old mama shares her wisdom about what’s kept her fit through all these decades.

Let’s do it!

What is different with Living Lean as we age?

Here are the questions we answer with timestamps if you’d like to jump ahead to a specific question.

  1. Excellent job you two! I’m so thrilled to see this advice as I started out in weight training as the ONLY female trainer in my gym and at 69 switched to yoga (met your mom in workshops). The combo of it all will take you far. I’m 77 and I have AFIB but I hike daily and cover those other bases. Keep on with the videos ladies!
