#15 – Aging & Longevity – The Real Reasons Why You Decline

October 18, 2023 by VAHVA Fitness

Here are the real reasons behind physical and cognitive decline that is associated with aging. There are countless examples of 50-60 years olds who are still incredibly fit & strong!

Real physical decline starts far later than most people think.


When I was young, I heard so many stories of relatives talking about how fit and strong they were when they were young. At the time, these relatives were only 35-40 years old.


Nowadays, people think physical decline starts in the mid 20s and then it's just downhill from there. In reality, for most people their physical peak is at 35-45 years old and many are still incredibly fit and powerful in their late 50s.


Age is only one factor. What matters is what you have done and what you are doing with your years.


We have many members who are 70-80 years old doing our programs and they are doing well. In this podcast, we share many examples of individuals who were at the highest level in many physical activities at later ages. 


You can age poorly or age gracefully. In the end what matters is how well you live and how well you move your body. This we will discuss further in this new podcast. 

Stay strong.
