4 Tips from an incredible 86-year-old woman

Today I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with a lovely 86-year-old woman. She was getting ready to take an Orangetheory Fitness class and I was amazed by her tenacity and energy for life. This is what I learned in my 10 minute conversation with her:

"Keep moving those bones."

That was Jo's advice to everyone that gave her warm welcomes. She said as long as she's moving her body, she feels great and full of life. Keep those muscles strong to move that body.

"Get busy and stay interested."

Her schedule is packed with bowling, book club, ski club, dance, fashion shows, personal training, etc. She said to keep yourself curious and passionate.

"Never stop learning and using your brain."

After a brief moment of memory loss, she noted that one of the most important things is to keep your brain active. Keep reading, learning, and absorbing. Always be a student.

"Keep family close and celebrate with chocolate cake."

At the end of the workout, she mentioned that she has a little girl's night with her daughters every three months. Her eyes lit up when talking about dinner, especially the chocolate cake. Jo never skips out on the dessert, and I don't think you should either. Celebrate and spend time with your loved ones.
