Age Is Just A Number

Posting this as an inspiration to all who need a little bit of extra motivation…

Agism remains more debilitating in women due to misplaced myths such as men only growing more distinguished with age, men keeping muscle much longer, women being the “weaker sex”, women fearing bulky masculinity, especially the generation of women currently in their 60s and 70s. It takes a strongly misbehaved women to have resisted falling prey to these agist beliefs. We’re not going to see women as successful in defying age for another 10-20 years, because they suffer much stronger socially harmful beliefs than men. Society has a lot more against aging women than aging men. In my opinion, a fit woman in her 50s and 60s is in generally stronger than a fit man of the same age… Because of how much more she’s had to overcome socially and psychologically due to this prejudice. – Scott Sonnon, One of the Top 24 Trainers in the World

Dear Ladies  never say “I’m too old to do that”. Old is an attitude that gets in the way of living your life to the fullest.
