There is nothing we can do to stop the aging process, but we do have a choice in HOW we age. Exercise is key for controlling aging and reducing the effects of time on our bodies. Join Lauren as she talks to fitness expert Pete McCall, CSCS who is a master trainer for Core Health & Fitness, author and more. In this episode they discuss how functional training (mobility, strength, power and metabolic conditioning) exercises slow the aging process, what active aging is, which training activities are better for us as we age, if you should push through the aches and pains, where to start if you are not a die-hard fitness fanatic and the different current fitness trends and if/how they are appropriate for people in midlife.
