D'FYNE Fitness Magazine Winter 2019 - Page 10

FROM US AGEING FEARLESSLY W hat does “old” look like? More specif- ically, what does 50, 60, and 70 look like now- adays? While it may once have meant looking frail and, well, forgettable, with the healthcare and knowledge about aging and health and fitness we have now, and of course, the many products and treatments we have access to (hello, facial serums!), these decades of our lives, and for that matter, decades beyond that, no longer necessarily mean walking with a cane and, in case you missed it, silver hair is hot now. The trio of strong, fearless women on our cover are a prime example of this new definition of aging. And the more I talk to women in their 50s and 60s, and consider my own aging, something I keep hearing (and realizing for myself) is that on the inside, we still feel like the same person as we were in our 20s and 30s. Sure, we are wiser, but at your core, you still feel the like the same vital being you have always been. Of course, there are physiological factors to contend with that impact our health, such as the loss of muscle mass that comes with age. I chatted with Rosalie Brown, fitness pro extraor- dinaire and one-third of this issue’s cover, about this; she says that women are being proactive about being in the best shape physically and mentally that they can be, rather than shrinking away from living their best lives. As always, we love hearing from the D’FYNE commu- nity and seeing how you’re crushing the old stereotypes of women of a certain age. You’re setting the standard for all the girls of today. 10 D’FYNE - Winter 2019 EDITORIAL TEAM PUBLISHER DESC Publishing CHIEF PHOTOGRAPHER Chris V.
