How to Be Over 40 and Fit

by Billy Carney
Imagine having a body that's a fat burning machine and able to build lean muscle tissue in less time than it takes to read the very blog this entry is in!
Now are you really that busy not to exercise?
Heart Disease, Bad Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Sexual Dysfunction, Cancer.With all the warning signs with all the words of caution with all the telltale indicators that your body is slowly breaking down  how come a good portion of people approaching forty years of age and beyond, just don;t get it?
Have you ever looked at two people who were both middle age and noticed that one of them looked like they were much older and the other looked much younger? Did you ever wonder why? Read on, this article could be the fitness breakthrough you have been waiting for.
Research tells us that a date on a calendar doesn't measure a person's true age anymore. The healthiest people in this world are those who devote time, energy and a little bit of effort to get that way. What that means is that there is no free lunch when it comes to being fit, lean and healthy.
Unfortunately, most people don't feel the need to work out until they get a friendly reminder from their physician. Let's face it, we all know exercise is good for us, but until the consequences hit us square in the face, we'll have a hard time doing something about it.
If you don't know where you are going or how to get there, you're bound to get lost.
So, if you're frustrated, overworked, dissatisfied and fed up about losing control of that ever expanding waistline, there's still hope for you. Just by putting a little bit of lean muscle tissue on your frame will start reversing the aging process almost immediately.
As we age, we need to realize that our bodies aren't what they used to be. We're no longer the star athlete or the one envied by all for being able to fit in that size 2 dress all the time. 
Our bodies begin to lose strength, bone density and muscle mass. Scientific experts have proven that being overweight is more detrimental than you think. it now accounts for increased rates of death by cancer. If cancer is not enough to scare you, you should also be concerned with osteoporosis. Exercise (intense exercise/high resistance exercise) is the only way to reverse this process.
If you're over 40 and feel as if life is passing you by, stop by your local fitness center for a Fitness Makeover.
Your health is your greatest asset. Make it a priority and watch how good you'll start to feel (and look) every day!
