Staying Fit and Healthy as You Age [ Have you ever said or thought any of the following? "I used to be able to eat what I wanted to. " "I used to be able to move better around the house. " "I used to feel better in these clothes. " You may know that exercise helps address these signs of aging. What you may not know is you can't exercise the way you used to — when you were a teenager, for instance. As you age, you need an exercise program designed to fit your lifestyle. As you get older, your energy decreases and your metabolism slows, so your normal routine no longer works like it used to. Add to that a busy schedule and you may become easily frustrated… But don't fret! Although you still want to look good and hear compliments from others, other motivations may take priority. You may want to feel better, have energy throughout the day, and/or pay closer attention to your overall health. Finding a solution that isn't designed for the younger crowd and that fits your priorities may seem difficult, but you 76 ] needn't look far. Nestled in a quiet, clean office complex in Centennial is The Conditioning Classroom. On the surface, it's a professional, private, personal training studio. But when you look a little closer, you realize you've just found something special. It's a studio that understands your needs as you age. At the helm is Dianne Bailey, and for the past 12 years, she has built a star-studded career in the fitness community. Dianne has been seen on 9news, on the cover of Personal Fitness Professional, in the Denver Post, the Examiner and other media. And recently she was featured in Shape magazine as one of 20 "Super Fit Chicks Who Don't Run." Dianne is 53 and proud of it. Fitness may appear to be a younger person's game, but she is quickly changing that.
