    Hi Beth. I turn 62 next Tuesday. Back in November – I finally joined a gym and have been working out with a trainer. My 40th college reunion is in May and I’m determined to look as good as I did for our 25th reunion (ok … maybe the 30th reunion!) Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

      that is fantastic! and i bet you feel as great as you look. just don’t overlook nutrition because working out and eating the right foods go hand in hand. have fun at your 40th reunion!

    I’m 60 and have been doing Bar Method for the past 5 years. I’ve had 2 ACL 2 meniscus surgeries on the left knee and wrist surgery! This exercise builds long lean muscle and they offer modifications for injuries.
    My orthopedic surgeon suggested I go to Bar Method, he sent Seahawk NFL players to Bar Method for post op exercise!
    I believe you need to find something that you’ll do consistently. I do Bar class 4-5 times a week and golf 2-3 times a week.
    Good luck exercise is the fountain of youth.

      exercise is key! thanks so much for sharing your success. and, yes, you have to find an exercise routine that suits you. thank goodness we have a few choices these days.

    Looking good, Beth! I’m 71 about to be 72 in March… I need to start moving again! Thnx for the inspiration!

    Good for you–I like the room you set up! That’ll inspire you to keep up since you’re right there to use it. I like your shoes–are they Nikes?

    • beth djalali says:

      the shoes are Nike. very comfortable to wear during a workout. i’m glad you like my home gym! it’s the perfect space to lift those weights.

      • Sue Smith says:

        thanks! I thought they were. I just bought some new Nikes and they look similar–I needed a new pair.

    Curious. Are you looking to lose, tone or both? You look great, what will will happen with your extensive wardrobe? Having said that you are inspiring me to move again and gain control over my 61 year old self.

      hi terri! great question. one aspect i love about this program is that it is a lifestyle. it’s teaching me proper ways to fuel my body and how to properly combine nutrition with exercise. the two go hand-in-hand. it doesn’t count calories but it balances macros – proteins, fats, and carbs because we need all three to be fit and healthy.

      for me, i’m no stranger to working out and have been in shape and out of shape. and i happen to love being in shape because it feels so good, my energy level is high, and i sleep well at night. and i never have to worry about losing muscle mass. so i was happy to find this program to help me get back on track. i’m so happy you signed up! let me know your progress, thoughts, etc… i know you will love it as much as i do!

    Oh! Just registered for the Feb 5 Bootcamp! Thanks for being a role model.
