I just came across some info that I thought I should share with you.
Did you know that one in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis?!!!
Not only that but HALF of all adults age 50 and older are at risk of breaking a bone due to poor bone health.
Even though those worries might seem a long way off, what you do TODAY can have a big impact on your bone health.
Here are some key things you can do to help you stay strong and independent as you get older:
Make sure you are eating a well rounded diet of whole foods and getting the proper nutrition. You may need to check with your doctor to see that you have what you need.
Exercise regularly: Make muscle-strengthening and weight-bearing exercise a non-negotiable. A minimum of two resistance training workouts a week is recommended. I have included this in my BWF Club!
Don’t smoke and keep alcohol intake at a moderate level: Both can lead to bone loss.
Ask your healthcare provider: They can give you info about your risk of getting osteoporosis, and guide you when it comes to getting a bone density test.
If you want help in building healthy habits that support your bones (and the rest of your body, too!), my BWF Club may be a great fit!
What is my focus in the Club? Live Classes and Videos on Demand that offer full body strength, cardio and mobility work. Not to mention nutrition guidance to help you feel better with what you eat and manage your blood sugar.
