Fitness Over 40 with Aimee Nicotera

Are you getting close to the 'BIG 4-Oh'? Are you already in your 40s (or a little beyond)? Do you find it a challenge to balance all of the things that you have to do, like work and family, with the things that you want to do, like exercise? Introducing a brand-new feature of the All About Fitness podcast: Fitness Over 40 with Aimee Nicotera Aimee is a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and fitness educator (she teaches other trainers and instructors how to make people sweaty); she has been on the podcast 2 times to talk about how to stay fit while pregnant and to share how she overcame breast cancer. Recently we started having these conversations on Facebook Live and they are perfect for this show, so the audio portions are going to become an ongoing part of the programming; twice a month Aimee and I will address a specific issue about managing life in our 40s while making health and fitness a priority. On this episode, Aimee and I talk about how to encourage your kids to be active; Aimee has a young son and I have 2 daughters in elementary school. Issues covered in this episode include: which is better for young kids - sports or activities? How to help your kids develop physical literacy, how to model healthy behavior for your kids and what that means. This is a fun and engaging conversation that will help you identify ways that your entire family can be more active.
