Who Inspires You?

Harriette Thompson, 91, from Charlotte, N.C.

There are people you meet in life that prove everyone wrong and defeat “the odds”. They take their situation and decide not to listen to what everyone has to say, but instead decide for themselves what they are going to do. In turn they become an inspiration, a walking example of how we should all strive to live our lives. Harriette Thompson is someone we look up to here at Body Bar.

At 91, Thompson finished a marathon (26.2 miles!) with a pace of about 16 minute miles. All while raising almost 6 figures for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. Yes – it’s just as amazing as it sounds!

Don’t believe it? Watch a clip on Harriette here.

Who inspires you? How do you use that inspiration in your daily life?

The Body Bar FLEX SENIOR FIT program is a fun, energizing exercise curriculum. It uses safe, effective, integrated movement patterns designed to improve the functional skills of daily living, and enhance range of motion, balance, strength, and flexibility.

The Body Bar FLEX variable resistance bar is a unique fitness device, ideal for total body conditioning. According to one fitness professional, it is “Just possibly the single most versatile, user-friendly piece of exercise equipment you will own!”

So easy to use! The Body Bar FLEX weighs just 27 ounces, yet provides up to to 20 pounds of resistance. It is a compact 48” long and 1” in diameter.

Many exercises to choose from. The SENIOR FIT exercise program is designed to improve joint mobility and stability, through compound movement patterns where more than one muscle group is worked at a time. This firms, tones, and conditions the muscles of the legs, upper body, and core.

Adaptable to your needs. The program using the Body Bar FLEX will stretch and strengthen your entire body – in standing, seated, or reclining positions.

You will love the benefits! Improve your functional skills. Regain that balance and flexibility you thought you’d lost. Increase your well-being and independence.
