Up until two years ago, I was able to do a full split. And, even “I” was pretty impressed. But, after settling into married life and a new desk job, my flexability was far from what it use to be. In fact, once I started working with my personal trainer, muscles I didn’t even know I had, were sore.

Still, there are people my age and older who make exercise and fitness look virtually effortless. And, according to experts, the secret to their success have everything to do with strategy and less to do with stamina.

Research reveals that those who take a mind over matter approach to fitness. In fact, experts suggest that since they don’t mind a little pain, working out hard, for them, doesn’t matter. Studies suggest that ladies who were not “intimidated” about being pushed to their limits felt less pain, exhaustion, and discomfort after their fitness routine. And, they say the reason is purely psychological. In fact, experts suggest that people who possess self-confidence are often better prepared to deal with “discomfort” and put it in perspective. They suggest building your stamina and endurance by visualizing yourself as an athlete in training.
