Welcome to my Motivation to Move for Healthy Bones newsletter, designed to inspire you to stay active for strong bones for a fabulous second half of your life. If you’d like to subscribe, enter your email in the yellow box to the right.————->
When I taught physical education, my main focus was to make my classes as fun as possible so the kids would gain a lifetime love of exercise. In my new career as a personal trainer (P.E. for big kids!), I wanted to do the same for my over-fifty clients and class participants.
I used to make posters, print handouts, and try to squeeze in as many motivating comments as possible during class on why and how to exercise for healthy bones. But, it was never enough!
So, in 2010, my Motivation to Move for Healthy Bones newsletter and blog was launched. It’s for you, women in the over-fifty age group, and is filled with all things related to safe and effective exercise for bone health. I want you to ENJOY staying healthy and active for the rest of your life.
But, if you signed up a long time ago for email delivery of this free newsletter, you haven’t seen too many of them! Since I was getting many requests to create videos of my workouts, my blog took a back seat to getting my two DVDs produced and out the door. Now, they’re done, my new website is up, life is good, and I’m blogging again!
If you’d like to subscribe to my free newsletter, enter your email in the yellow box on the upper right sidebar, and click the arrow to subscribe. It will be automatically delivered to your email inbox. You’ll also receive the two free companion exercise logs for my DVDs. Don’t worry, I won’t send you too many emails or spam and you can always unsubscribe at any time.
