for the 40+ woman!

It’s September, and with that, comes a harried group of women all wanting tocanmore2 ‘get back to it!”, and rightly so.

Yep, September is usually the busiest time of year for us Fitness gals (NOT January, like everyone thinks!). That’s because we’ve been out of schedule with our exercise and healthy eating for – gulp – almost 2 months!

Oh sure, we’ve dabbled here and there with training, but it just hasn’t had the same feel, or consistency. You feelin’ the same? (That’s me and my sis, Sheryl, enjoying some beverages by the 3-Sisters Mountains…oh yeah!)

Lots of times, women ask how long it takes to get you back to where you were before you fell off things. It all depends on how long you’ve been training, how you’ve been eating, how old you are, and what other stuff you’ve been doing. The longer you’ve been training, the faster the body can pick up where it left off.

For me, I went on holidays for 10 days and let my training go (oh sure, I hiked canmoreand biked, but that’s not training, that’s hiking and biking. Different indeed….), and it took me  3 weeks to get my strength and reserves up again, (and I’m a pretty seasoned lifter).

So…start from wherever you are. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been away, it matters that you’re back, right? The Wise Warrior Woman doesn’t worry about the past, she moves ahead into the present with clarity and conviction. She just gets back up on that healthy living horse again.

Welcome back ladies!  – Karen

“Thank you for all your support over the 10 Week Challenge.  I have learned so much for you, and am so grateful Karen. Your leadership, teaching, and support are truly valued. Again, thank you for your guiding light.” – Nerina Holderness

“Hey Karen! Thanks for everything and all the knowledge I have gained over the last 10 Week and 12 Week Best Shape Challenges, it’s been so empowering! I find your program fits in with my lifestyle and I am grateful that I get to be a part of the monthly HLP now. I’m ready! Thanks again!” – Kala Sinclair

“I’ve always considered myself to be a fairly healthy and fit person, but Karen’s 10-Week Best Shape Challenge program introduced me to a whole new way of thinking about my diet and my workouts. I have gained muscle and trimmed fat and feel the strongest that I have felt in years. Finally, I shed those extra 10 pounds and turned it into muscle. Fitting this into our busy lives is a challenge, but with short manageable workout routines, it is do-able. The 10 week challenge was the spark to get me going and now I know what I need to do to maintain my new shape and diet. Thanks Karen, for getting me on my way to a new and healthier body.” – Valerie Pike, BC

“I have had such a great journey. Doing both the 10 and 12 Week Challenges has been enough time to make these changes seem almost routine. I am so grateful to you, Karen, and the work that you have done for us in creating your programs. They truly have altered my life!” – Dariol Haydock
