View descriptionShare

Getting motivated to come back to exercise after a recent injury or illness can be challenging especially as we age. Going from nursing an injury or illness which, mostly means our level of activity is very low to regular weekly exercise isn’t always as easy as it seems. There are many factors that can affect us which aren’t necessarily physical. Mental and emotional aspects can play a big role in making this transition difficult as well.

Luckily there are things you can do to help make that transition smoother and more manageable.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Why we decided to dedicate a whole episode to this topic and why it is more common than we think especially amongst older adults.

2). Some of Meredith’s personal experiences in working with clients of all ages and their struggles with returning to exercise.

3). Why starting small and slow at first is a smart way to begin when returning to exercise so as to not get overwhelmed or discouraged.

4). How having the support of family or friends can help make a big difference when transitioning back to a regular active schedule.

5). Why “coming back” to exercise after time away represents the values in getting back up after a loss and how this affects you positively in all the things challenge you in life.


We hope the tips we’ve shared in this episode help you or someone you know who may be struggling with returning to exercise. It isn’t always an easy journey to do so no matter how active you may have been in the past. Taking the steps and suggestions mentioned here can definitely help get you back on track and down the road to a longer healthier life.
