According to ABC use it or lose it. You might have heard that saying in regards to maintaining muscle. But as we age, we’ve got a host of issues, such as work, family, aches and pains, which seem to get in our way of fitness goals.
Fitness expert Kathy Smith knows how to stay strong and maintain balance and reflexes throughout the years. Turning 60 this year, this international fitness star has been teaching exercise since the 1970s.
“Through the years, the styles of exercise has changed, and… I’ve really enjoyed staying current,” said Smith.
Step aerobics, boxing, dancing, yoga, Pilates – if it was popular, Smith was on it. She produced exercise albums in the late 1970s, then videos. She was the first person to come out with an exercise DVD to help people worldwide learn how to sweat in the comfort of their living room.
Strength, flexibility, coordination, and cardiovascular system are all important parts of fitness, but as you get older one tops the list.
“If there’s one message I want to get out there to everybody it’s that this idea of muscle and staying strong is what keeps people young and active and energetic,” said Smith.
Older patients are in better shape these days than ever before. Some patients become dissatisfied with the shape and contour of their body as they age. Many times they are in great shape but they have fat in unwanted places on their body. Dr O’Toole recommends liposuction as an option for toning the body and removing fat. For older patients Smart Lipo may be an excellent option especially if there is a concern with anesthesia. Dr O’Toole is able to treat almost every part of the body.
