Did you know when you go from 0 hours of fitness per week to 3 hours, you get a 50% reduction in all-cause mortality?It is the single most impactful thing you can do for your lifespan.

Dr. Attia, author of Outlive, studies longevity, specifically around how to maximize it, which involves exercise, nutrition, sleep, and emotional health. 

The first question he asks is, “what is your goal when you are 80 or 90 years old?  What do you want to be able to do?”  Then he works backwards to get specific metrics. The goal for most people should be maintaining a functional level of fitness in your 70’s. The earlier you start towards this goal the better.  It gives you more of a hedge against illness and more time to build fitness. 

The question is – how fit are you now?  At 30?  At 40?  At 50 The older you are, the less time you have to make a significant impact.  Naturally, the more out of shape you are, the more work there is to be done.

If you aren’t working out now, start as soon as possible, and maintain the 3+ hours per week! Your fitness program should improve your stability, strength, aerobic, and anaerobic performance. Good thing is if you’re a member at Reclaim, we are covering all of these bases. If you want help working on maximizing your longevity, shoot us a message!
