Centenarian or Bust!Written by Sherri L Dodd
Continued from page 1
Aside from smoking, there are many complex formulas contributing to each Centenarian’s lifespan that ethnicity, socio-economical class nor special diets fail to pinpoint. The search will surely be relentless. In interim, there is another factor that has been proven to postpone aging process time and again – exercise. A new initiative – National Blueprint: Increasing Activity Among Adults 50 and Older – is striving toward a national campaign in order to make physical activity more comprehensible to older adults. This measure aims to include educational fitness programs, exercise-supportive advice by clinicians and even possibility of some of these fitness expenses being covered by healthcare.
Aside from all healthcare prospects, simply knowing that golden years are getting all this long overdue attention is a treasureable notion in itself. And, jeez, doesn’t it make you feel young again? From where you stand now to end point of your own century…makes me feel like grabbing a lollipop and playing a quick game of hopscotch.

Many sports teams use BOSU training too. Says Bennie Wylie, Assistant Strength Coach of Dallas Cowboys "I implement BOSU trainer during our off-season program for core strength training and rehabilitation of ankle and knee problems. It is a great piece of equipment and gives us an important extra dimension to our overall fitness program. Almost all of players use BOSU trainer in some fashion on a regular basis."
So next time you overhear a conversation in grocery store or your friend tells you that she's going to 5:30 p.m. BOSU class at Y, you'll know what they're talking about. Better yet, give it a try yourself!
