Be Your Best at Any Age

Hi, Ladies!
Don’t wait! Get busy getting your best body no matter what your age! You can start with this 5-minute workout doing each of five exercises for just one minute. No excuses, modified versions are available in the video. Anyone can do this! Yes, even you! After all, you don’t have to start off perfect, you just have to start.

We gain inspiration this week from Cher. The talented actor, artist and fitness icon. Cher is 71 years old and has the body we wish we had in our youth. It’s never too late to start.

One of the biggest excuses I hear from my clients as they age is that their body cannot respond to intense exercise. Often they don’t set high enough goals for their body to be in the best shape of their lives. The stronger and more fit these clients get, the higher they raise their OWN bar. You can do it too.

One of the things we lose as we age is strength. All of our muscles fall, and we accept more than we should from our out of shape body. Cher has an amazing Booty, and you can too.

“You don’t get the best body you can have by wishing for it. You get it by working for it.” -Cher

1. Step sideways up onto the bench with the lead foot.
2. Step up so both feet are on the bench.
3. Step off the other side of the bench with the lead foot.
4. Step down so both feet are on the floor.

2. Step forward with the other foot. You can raise your knee, kick, or just tap.
3. Step back with the other foot.
4. Step backward and lunge back with the lead foot.

4- Straddle-
This move is done in 8 counts:
1. Step up to the center of the bench with the lead foot.
2. Bring the other foot up so both are on top of the bench.
3. Step down and back on the other side of the bench with the lead foot.
4. Bring the other foot down on the opposite side of the bench.
5. Step up on the bench again with the lead foot.
6. Bring the other foot up on the bench again.
7. Step back and down with the lead foot.
8. Bring the other foot down next to the lead foot.

5- Plank-
Place the forearms on the ground with the elbows aligned below the shoulders, and arms parallel to the body at about shoulder-width distance. If flat palms bother your wrists, clasp your hands together. (Note: Any of the following plank variations can be performed with straight arms or in a forearm position.)

Be the best you.
