by:  Carolyn Vanzlow

I would like to introduce myself to my newest and most esteemed audience.  My name is Carolyn Vanzlow and I am a full fledged Baby Boomer. Currently I am 74 years and have no immediate plans of getting old. I haven’t stopped aging, I am determined to stay upright and moving without chronic pain!

It wasn’t always like this. At 54 I was complaining to a doctor that I was getting tired easily and lower energy. The comment was “I was getting old”.

It wasn’t age, it was something else.

What got me interested in working with chronic pain was my own journey. I was a mess and at 49 my body said ENOUGH!! I hurt in my neck, shoulders, hips, ribs and was very unsure of my balance.

It wasn’t always like this. At 54 I was complaining to a doctor that I was getting tired easily and lower energy. The comment was “I was getting old”.

It wasn’t age, it was something else.

What got me interested in working with chronic pain was my own journey. I was a mess and at 49 my body said ENOUGH!! I hurt in my neck, shoulders, hips, ribs and was very unsure of my balance.

I decided to work with a doctor who used corrective exercise, lifestyle, and chiropractic for my treatment program.

I was hooked from day one. For the first time I realized how important movement is, especially Corrective Exercise movements.

My painful world began to reshape into a world of moving without pain, participating in cycling, powerlifting, Kettlebells, and Functional training.

I was ecstatic and so proud of myself.

I began to trust my balance, and I was less afraid of trying out new things and embarrassing myself.

I felt good and proud of how far I came!

This obstacle turned into a new opportunity and career for me.

Why am I writing about senior fitness, well, because I am one. I am doing what I am teaching and sharing with people just like you.

I know you don’t want to be stuck in a chair or sofa all day, watching TV. When you stand up, it hurts. Maybe your knees and hips are stiff and hard to get started up?

What about picking up your grandchildren or playing catch?

Maybe you love to golf or play pickle ball, but your joints and spine leave you feeling pretty beat up and not sure if you should be doing these things any longer.

Do you love beautiful walks outdoors, but you are worried about falling, tripping, or slipping?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get up and go?

My topics will be evidenced based, and I will share client experiences along with my own. Some topics may appear new, and others may seem familiar.

I always tell clients to use their discernment and listen to your body. No one knows your body better than you!

Please stay turned for the next article. I will be giving tips and ideas for improving movement and doing more of what you love!

Wishing you health and happiness,
