Keep fit after 40 with this simple workout

This simple workout is guaranteed to keep you fitter for longer JPG copy

Fitness isn’t just something to chase after in your 20s. As we live longer, it’s becoming increasingly important that we look after both our bodies and our minds.

Age matters less and less these days and it’s possible to maintain peak athletic performance far beyond your 30s. Indeed, an active 70-year-old can be fitter than a sedentary 20-year-old; it’s all about how you look after yourself. Ready for your first challenge? Try this Prometheus workout and set yourself up for a lifetime of health and fitness.

If you listen to your body and stay aware of the increasing risk of injury as you get older, age should be neither a problem, nor an excuse. Workouts might seem tougher, recovery might take longer, and progress could seem slower, but everything is still possible. Age is a number. So, even if there are biological changes in your body, it doesn’t mean you need to stop working on yourself. There is no age limit to being fit. Start now, finish never. Ready to begin?
