At Trilogy, we believe age is just a number -- the number of laps, bench presses, and yoga sessions that is! The art of aging gracefully is never saying no to new challenges, new adventures, and constantly striving to be the best version of yourself. Today is always the right time to start focusing on your health and well-being.
Aging is a fact of life. How you grow with each passing year is a choice we make everyday.
For Your Body
We all know physical activity is key for total body health. Exercise becomes even more important as we age. Interval training has been found to be the most effective form of fitness for older gym goers. Not only does regular, moderate activity strengthen muscles and promote flexibility, but consistent exercise improves genetic integrity, restores cells, and even stabilizes blood pressure.
For Your Brain
Exercising the mind is equally crucial as we age. A fitness routine promotes serotonin and dopamine production. These two vital neurotransmitters affect mood, sleep, memory, and digestion. Maintaining a healthy balance is especially important during the hormonal changes that come with maturity.
Exercise is a great way to engage your brain by trying different classes, routines, and activities each week.
The most important reason to commit to a lifelong fitness routine is you! Every stage in our personal journey requires dedicated self-care to ensure that our spiritual and emotional needs are being met. Mental health provides the cornerstone for physical health, especially as we get older.
- Stay connected to a community with wellness workshops. Make new friends and explore new perspectives on self-care.
- Smile more! It may surprise you to learn that the act of smiling generates endorphins which improve mood, assist in alleviating chronic joint pain, and reduce stress.
- Prioritize rest. There's no better time to value your sleep schedule. Restoration is a vital part of keeping the body and soul youthful and rejuvenated.
- Practice gratitude. Counting your blessings is a great way to stay connected with the world around you!
Continuing to set aside time to spend with yourself is a practice that will inspire and grow alongside you.
