    44 here. 40 was my best year... Then I gained some, and now I'm back on the logging and lifting train.

    I'm in my late 40's. Not sure why anyone would think it's impossible to be fit in your 40's.

    I imagine it might be harder to get fit if you are just starting out in your 40's. I already had a fitness foundation that I built in my late thirties, so all I've had to do is maintain. (And maybe work at smaller goals like run pace or weight training, etc.) For me, maintaining isn't any harder now than it was ten years ago. It feels very much the same, TBH. It might even be a bit easier, since I seem to have more discipline as I age.

    I don't actually know if it's hard to start from scratch at this age, but I imagine it could be, depending on what you're starting with. I think the older you are when starting your fitness journey, the more challenges you'll likely face, but that doesn't make it impossible, or even unlikely. So get started right now - don't wait! Set your mind to it and get after it!

    So true! It’s never too late to improve yourself no matter what your age!
