Diego Sebastian– Celebrity personal trainer to the stars and creator of the Shredded Abs App recommends how to stay fit after 40.
As we age, fitness tends to take on a new shape. Exercise routines you once found merely challenging may now seem painful or even impossible by the time you're 40, 50, or 60.
It makes no difference whether you’re male or female, an avid workout fanatic or a mall walker -- sooner or later, age will have an effect on your body.
You don't have to be a gym rat to reap the benefits of activity as you age. Celebrity personal trainer to the stars and fitness model Diego Sebastian has some tips for those of us over 40 (he’s 42) on how to stay fit after the “big four-O”.
