Today I want to talk about a really important question that I like to ask my clients:


Where do you want to be at 85 years old?


Here’s what I want you to ponder…what do you want to be physically capable of doing at age 85? For example, do you want to be able to get up out of a chair by yourself? Do you want to be able to squat down and pick something up without hurting yourself? How about driving yourself wherever you want? Playing with your grandkids or great grandkids?


No matter how far 85 may seem, it’s NEVER too early to start thinking about our goals at that age because to be that woman then, we need to focus on this woman now. So let’s talk about functional movement.

Functional Movement

Functional movement means making sure that we’re strength training, doing mobility exercises, and conditioning our bodies so we can continue to do the day to day activities that keep us independent. These modalities keep our muscles, joints, tendons, and connective tissue strong, flexible, and mobile. And although it’s never too late to start, the sooner you prioritize these movements, the better the future you’ll set yourself up for.

I’ve put together 7 steps to achieving that physical prowess so your future you will be crushing it!

1. Discipline:

This is really important, because a lot of people say they lack motivation. But here’s the thing: motivation is a short-lived external source. We can’t rely on it to keep us going. Instead, we need discipline. Discipline means doing something even when we don’t feel like it, because we know it’s good for us. It’s a decision we make every single day. And it can be developed through hard work and practice. So, if you’re not feeling very disciplined right now, don’t worry! You can work on it, just like any other skill.

2. Consistency.

This is all about showing up, day after day, and doing the work. It’s not about being perfect, or never missing a workout. It’s about making a commitment to yourself and sticking to it as best you can. Even if you have a bad day, or a bad week, just keep going. Consistency is key.

3. Patience.

This is really important, because we live in a world where we want instant results. But the truth is, real change takes time. It’s not going to happen overnight. So, be patient with yourself, and trust the process.

4. Set realistic goals.

This means setting goals that are achievable, and that you can work towards over time. Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting goals that are too ambitious or unrealistic. Instead, start small, and build up from there.

5. Support system.

This can be friends, family, a coach, or a community. It’s important to have people in your corner who will encourage you, hold you accountable, and celebrate your successes.

6. Listen to your body.

This means paying attention to how you feel, and adjusting your workouts and activities accordingly. If you’re feeling tired or sore, it’s okay to take a break or scale back. It’s important to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally.

7. Have fun!

This might sound trite, but it’s really important. Exercise and movement can be enjoyable. Find activities that you love, and make them part of your new normal. The more you enjoy it, the more likely you are to stick with it long term!

You’ve got this, friend! One day at a time!
