Getting In Shape

This will be a short post, but it is a truism.

It is much easier to stay in shape than it is to get in shape. I mean much easier.

That is why it is important not to allow yourself to get out of shape once you are in shape. Even though it take effort to continue your training, this effort is small when compared to the time and effort of getting back into shape, especially if you let yourself go badly.

There are many reasons not to train or to put it off. We all are too busy. But it is in your best interest to keep in shape. The time you save by laying off training will seem small compared to the time it will take to get back into shape.

I should add that the older you get (especially past 40 or 50), the harder it becomes to get back into shape.

Once you get in shape, keep in shape.
