Seniors Starting a fitness plan is your decision to get healthy and fit

You are never too old for starting a fitness plan. Many of us in the Boomer generation have worked hard to make a good life for our families. Having done so has required our time and dedication. Have you neglected to maintain your health and fitness? Your children are grown and it’s your turn to prioritize you.

How to Begin
