Boom Generation Fitness

Mind - body fitness and health strategies for powering thru later years

The blog is aimed at the generation that was born between 1946 and 1964 - the so-called Baby Boomers.

We are now into our middle-age and very interested in staying fit and healthy until well into our senior years.

This blog provides some of the tools to do just that. You can find posts here and lots more by clicking on the links to THINK FIT and THE FITNESS PAPERS (see left side column).

These pages are about any and all matters concerning wellness, mind, body and spirit and, of course, physical exercise of all sorts. A special feature is an emphasis on individuals who can provide examples for us all of a healthy, energetic and positive life.

These three practical/tactical topics are the fundamentals of physical (and mental) fitness. This blog is about both physical and mental health - including spiritual fitness - but the basic groundwork is keeping yourself physically fit.

The key message is: you can keep fit, strong and active well into old age!

There is no need to get decrepit... but there are lots of folks who are physically dysfunctional in their 39s and 40's..... you wouldn't neglect your car, so why neglect the vehicle for the most precious things you have - your mind and your spirit?

Under these three heads of ENERGY, STAMINA AND STRENGTH we cover a huge variety of topics including:
  • Extreme sports (including marathons)
  • Nutrition and food supplements
  • Running/jogging/walking
  • Golf
  • Swimming
  • Aerobics
  • Cycling
  • Fitness centres and gyms
  • Resistance training and bodybuilding (Yes, you CAN - well into later life!)
..............and a few more as they come to mind

By the way....... practical/tactical activities that help with integrated mind and body well-being such as yoga and martial arts are covered as a separate category - we haven't forgotten them.
