As we live longer and longer, the active part of that - the healthspan, if you like - also grows.

One of the outcomes from this is that people are now beginning their own strength-training journeys at a variety of ages - it's entirely reasonable to begin at age 8 or 80; or anything inbetween.

This week we're taking a close look this ’training at any age’ philosophy. If you're already in your 50s/70s/90s or beyond, how do you start? What sorts of things should you - and could you - be doing?

And for those of us that haven't quite reached those points yet, how do we make sure we're still ready for the heavy stuff when we get there?

Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than personal trainer +Kirk Fontaine. Fantastic.
