WALKING is great, but it’s NOT ENOUGH for Women over 50

37  comments

If you’re WALKING🚶‍♀️ regularly, that’s all the exercise you really need, right🤔? (I’ve already told you the answer to this question right there in the title of this video!)

We’re tackling this important health topic today, and I’m sharing the personal story of my grandmother💖 and how her exercise choices had a direct impact on the quality of her life as she aged.

If you want to maximize your own HEALTH and FITNESS for years to come in, walking can absolutely be part of the equation. But you’ll also want THIS in your fitness toolbox🧰.

Join me as I’m walking on sunshine🌞 (for real!) in this SHORT & SWEET VIDEO that has the potential to literally change your fitness future🤩! Tune in now and let’s GO!

    • Yay ladies you have inspired me. I will start tomorrow morning.. I walk every morning for 4 years with my dog but it has never done one thing to change my body. Im still out of shape and loss of all my muscle tone. I’m so sad. I will not wear dresses skirts or short sleeves.
      I’m 62, 145 & 5’5″. But complete flab. 🌻🤪🤣😂 I’ve got to do something different

    • @Lori Law I am 56, 5’ 9”, 125 lbs & I am also all flab…my dr calls me skinny-fat & not as a compliment😲But Pahla makes me think I can turn this around…even in my 50’s so I am doing her workouts. I am hopeful for the first time ever that I might be able to tone up😬🙏

    • Give yourself some credit there! Your mindset couldn’t have changed unless you were willing to change it and do the work! Don’t give away your power 🥰

  • Great reminders. I love walking, but I also love strength training and everything it’s done for me. And I’m confident that as I get close to 50 and beyond, I won’t have as many broken bones from falls (or as many falls, period) because of your workouts. Thanks for everything you do!

  • Really liked the walking skeleton. Seriously, my interest in exercise has been decreasing and that was a great booster. Thank you

  • Pahla B Fitness you have changed my life. Always dreaded exercise and now I LOVE doing your videos. Osteoporosis runs on my mom’s side, and all the ladies became more and more hunched over as they aged. Hoping I can change that! This latest video is so informative and really hits home. I’m sharing with all the wonderful women in MY life! xo

  • Turned 58 a few weeks ago…had major reconstructive foot surgery on my left foot last July, same surgery on right foot last December. Spent 12 weeks (each time) in a recliner all day & night, with my feet propped up on huge pillows, had to keep them above my heart. Needless to say, I’m seriously out of shape now, and my lower back hurts all the time. I had already gained almost 30lbs in the last few years because I couldn’t walk very far or work out much due to excruciating foot pain. I’m just now able to start walking again (my 3 Beagles have become chubby little chunks too, they love going with me 🐾❤💙❤). Your workouts are such a blessing! Just sent a request to join your Facebook group (auto correct got me on the spelling of your name, didn’t catch it until a split second after I hit the button, sorry!! 😳). You are such an inspiration, I’m sure your grandmother is smiling down on you! Folks, if you haven’t checked out Pahla’s workout exercises, do it now! This lady is AWESOME!! Thank you so much Pahla! ❤

  • Thank you Pahla ! You really encourage me to keep exercising for the sake of being healthy . I love your personality. I am 64 and retired last June. I enjoy your exercises every single day! God bless you!

  • Loved this video, story and all the right reasons to walk, work out with weights and maintain my STRENGTH and BALANCE! Thank you Pahla!

  • Thank you for this video! My sister and I have both been diagnosed with osteoporosis at a rather young age! I’m glad I found your workouts to help me stay strong!💪💪💪

  • Good morning! I am an internal medicine physician. You explained this very well. In a way that is clear and INVITING!! Sharing your grand mother’s story is so impactful. It is hard to get adults to embrace “exercise” in general. Add lifting weights and ohmygolly!! I will point them to this video/channel!

  • This video brought tears to my eyes. I’m 52 and fit but I’ve been trying my hardest to lose my expanding belly. It hurts my ego now that I have to work even harder to look great in my clothes. I just have to accept that my body is changing and now I have to fight harder to maintain my standard of beauty and fitness. The reason that I am a bit tearful is because I remember the pain and agony that my maternal elders experienced in their later years. I walked 7 miles in two hours this morning so lost in the sun and wind that God allowed me to experience today. When I walk I walk to enjoy myself and strengthen my body, and I also walk for those who are no longer here or who are unable to walk. I’m going to get back in the gym and get a personal trainer to help me with strength training. Thank you and bless you. Thank you also for sharing your lovely grandmother with all of us.

    • My dear friend, you don’t have to work HARDER (in fact, that’s often the *problem* rather than the solution!), you have to do the RIGHT work. This video explains everything you need to know about losing weight at our age: https://youtu.be/tqcJM2kANQA

    • Go keto and low-carb. I have lost 57 lbs. my heaviest was 207 😮I weigh 148 now. Walking and quitting carbs.. bad ones any ways, help me shed the lbs. I am late 50’s.

  • I used to live in the US and I found it difficult to walk anywhere as no sidewalks. I used to have to go to a college track and walk that. Now back in the U.K. I love being able to walk out my front door and into the countryside. I started weight training a few months back and can see the difference in my posture and upper body strength. Thanks for the great video.

    • @Feebee I lived in Dallas and then Georgia. I remember my mum and I trying to walk along a main road as no sidewalk and people stopping asking if our car had broken down. I appreciate the whole of the US is not like that.

    • Julie. Same in S Carolina. No sidewalks. We found a big cemetary nearby and walked there.Yes. people stopped once to ask if we needed a ride. 😂
      Most areas in Minnesota have no sidewalks either.

  • Hi, Pahla. I just discovered you today! I’m already in love with everything I’m seeing. My husband is beginning his fight with advanced Prostate cancer and the next few months will be difficult for both of us. I need to work out and lift daily but the depression always gets in the way. I am now determined to do “something” every day! Thank you for the inspiration, ease of workouts, and I look forward to feeling better and stronger. Happy Wednesday! @loving50andbeyond on IG. XO’s

  • New subscriber!!🙌🏾🙌🏼 I am 64 and I go to the gym 6 days per week, one hour on the treadmill, 45 minutes doing weight and strengthen the core!! Before I started exercising I use to get out the bed like a hunched back woman, knee hurt and shoulder also. I started taking my health seriously going on 4 yrs now and I feel amazing. I no longer have the pain in my knee or shoulder anymore. I tell folk that exercise is the oil your muscle needs, just like the oil in your cars engine. If you don’t have the oil in either one, you engine and your muscles will seize up. Let keep moving baby boomers!!💃🏾💃🏾💃💃

  • I absolutely love walking! My favorite way to move my body – combined with time out in nature, natural day light, and stress relieving benefits: perfect ☺️. I’m also eagerly waiting on my rebounder (mini-trampoline). That’s great for balance, building muscles and your bones.

  • One of the things that helps is actually….belly dance! Low-impact, good for hips, wrists, spine, core…arms & legs, of course. Any body type can do this. Any age, too!

  • 3 years ago, I was cycling too, I felt pain in my back and overall lethargic and stiff. I started walking, stretching,balancing , go to the gym for 1 hour and miraculously , no pain, very tone and back to feel like in my thirties ( 64 years old ). I encouraged you good people to do it, it works.

  • I’m almost 59! 😳 I’ve been strength training, walking my dog, jogging, skipping and biking for a while now. I love it! The recovery time isn’t as it used to be but I’m hanging in there!

  • I’m 54 , NEVER had a belly even after 3 children , but now, the menopause belly struggle is real. I’ve changed my eating and started overall taking better care of myself. Slowly seeing changes.

  • What a blessing to find you! I’m 6 months into the new me in menopause. I started strength training 3 months ago and now I have you and Bob and Brad to round out the other days!! So excited 😆

  • I’m 44 years old and my health changed 360 upon reaching this decade. I walk and do yoga videos from YouTube. This combo has really helped me keeping fit and healthy.
