How does a sixty-one-year old woman in a short denim skirt and a tight T-shirt look as good as a teenager?
The truth is, she looks better—because her fitness is emotional as well as physical.
RELATED: Time To Supercharge Your Body Wendy’s now a personal trainer, and every day she encourages clients to stop believing that being a certain age means that they’re stuck, that they can’t change, that they can’t be happy.
She’s adamant that fitness is as much a mental exercise as it is a physical exercise.“Okay, say you’ve decided that you want it; you’ve changed your mind,” I said.
I pushed her for answers that might explain those abs.
“At forty-three, I had to get my thinking right,” she said.
Wendy finds pleasure in these things, and she’s made it her business to help others experience just a sliver of the pie she eats from each day.“I know that making good health choices is important, but I’ve got to ask, what’s your real secret? Life is a mix of pleasure and work.” Listening as Wendy talked about spending time with her husband and helping others achieve their goals, I noticed that she’s managed to create a life with more pleasure than work, or so it seems.Her work has in many ways become her pleasure and her pleasure, getting massages and vacationing, is intertwined with her work.So how does a sixty-one-year-old woman look the way Wendy Ida looks?She loves how she feels, what she does, and who she helps.
