Masters age athletes can put a lot of younger people to shame when it comes to staying fit. This gal is 60 years young and is Fit and strong. She has been training with me for about 5 years. When we rolled out Mace Fit in January 2016 she jumped right in. If you are in your 40's or more it is vital to your health to stay strong and lean. Sarcopenia (muscle wasting) is a real threat for this age group. Another thing people need to maintain very good balance as they age. Falls are one of the leading causes of people going to nursing homes due to a broken hip or other bones. Mace Fit classes are a blast and can help you have a robust life and great health.
