What age range do you refer as you say 'older'?
Hi there, there are indeed a lot of very active members of Skimble inthe over 40 bracket, and even in over 50' s. The main reason you don't see them so often in the general forums is that most of those topics are kids trying to hookup, to be told they're beautiful or handsome or got enough abs, after being kiked or instagrammed or fb'd, or wanting to be motivated. There is a very active thread on the forums called Anyone 35 yrs or older??? It is always active, so you should be able to find it easy. There are tons of a active folk on there, heaps in their 40's or 50's. Get amongst it. Enjoy.
Yes, ther are over 50 people here. I am 57 and use these workouts when I am short on time. They are great.
I am older :-) 38! Welcome! We are here!
Im in my fifties.Dolng the 10k challenge for about month and 1/2.
I'm 53 and my goal is to live a healtier lifestyle so I try to workout every day at least a little bit. To help me stay motivated, I started taking Tae Kwon Do and working to earn my black belt. I don't expect to look like the 20-something gym rats. :-)
53 Ain't old ...I'm around people n their 80 s 90s and 100s wat I've learned is u may hav some obstacles younger people dnt hav YET...such as old "Auther" coming for a vist..or other little thts life problems tht come with growing older but u also hav more wisdom and experience..and wat I've learned with being around older people is whn they make up their mind u can't stop thm!! I've watched a little old woman n her 80s who had a stroke and cudnt walk bedridden for little over a year cuz one of her legs jus wudnt work been n rehab to no prevail one day sh looked at me and said I'm getting out of here Im going to walk few months later sh went home and is still doing good...ur age ain't a factor tht makes defeat its a point tht adds up to success
Older than some, younger than others.
I sure do feel it more than I used too some days. After more than a year of Tae Kwon Do, I haven't lost much weight but I'm in much better shape.
I am 61 and I wouldn't worry too much on the age gap. Just continue to do your 'at least 3 times a week' exercise. At our age, streching exercise is good and hence try to include yoga in your weekly routine. I alternate yoga, cardio and strength exercises in my weekly routine.
I'm 61 & lost most my weight on my own before I found this app. It's harder now but it can be done. Glad to see other older adults.
Hello, I am just getting ready to start a weight loss and exceresize program. I am 56 with spinal stenosis , had neck surgery and have fibro. I am a stubborn old mule though! I am determined I will get fit and healthy.
Thank you so much Richard!!
