【編輯楊旻芳/台北報導】你有運動的習慣嗎?現代人習慣久坐不運動,久而久之換來的的是健康檢查上滿滿的紅字、年老住在療養院度過餘生的命運。國外有一位阿嬤喬安.麥當納,身體差心煩不已。醫生建議她不想吃藥就要改變生活方式,她70歲的開始做瑜珈、有氧運動和重訓,三年後逆轉人生,減掉28公斤,健檢沒有紅字,不再吃藥。

三年前,喬安.麥當納,有高血壓、膽固醇過高、胃酸逆流,醫生建議她大幅改變生活方式,否則會需要吃更多藥。於是她開始做瑜珈、有氧運動、甚至重訓。

喬安剛開始訓練時,光是十磅(4.5公斤)的啞鈴她都覺得重,但她決心把恢復健康當成第一要務。「運動是我每天早上的第一件事。」她堅持早上七點就到健身房報到,運動完才會做其他事。

I never thought the seventies were going to end up like this! Being in videos in a gym in Tulum Mexico wearing @womensbest ! 😅😅 I am sincerely grateful for all the moments leading up to this. The journey has been long and it’s not over. I have endured many hiccups and frustrations. I have battled fatigue, anger, self-doubt and fear. I have learned to love more, to embrace my body, to be open minded and to push forwards. I hope you all believe that my journey can be anybody’s journey. 💯💯💯 I did not do gymnastics or any serious sport when I was young. I battled weight most of my adult life. I was seriously overweight for the past twenty years before starting all of this. I have had a hysterectomy when I was in my forties. I am not on Hormone Replacement Therapy. I do not eliminate any food groups. I train 5 x week for about 75 minutes with weights trying to get better each week. I do cardio 4-7 days a week for about 15-30 minutes depending on what my coach wants me to do. I take a few supplements like creatine and protein powder and fish oil but not much else. . Michelle and I will be doing a live video on my instagram tonight at 8 pm EST 👵🏼👵🏼 to answer questions so please join me! With love Joan 💕 .

三年後,她減下28公斤,還得到一張沒有紅字的健檢單,也不用再吃那些慢性病的藥。現年73歲的她坦言,原本只是以減重為目標,但現在她運動是為了感覺更強健、有活力。

成功改變的背後,是熱愛重訓的女兒推了她一把。喬安的女兒蜜雪兒不僅是廚師也是舉重好手,在墨西哥擁有一間重訓俱樂部。蜜雪兒告訴媽媽,她願意教她如何開始訓練,還建議她加入自己的線上運動課程。

The deadlift! Now this is a wonderful exercise for building bone strength as well as muscle strength, but it’s often done incorrectly. I know, many people my age would normally shy away from an exercise like this. And many average trainers wouldn’t know how to teach an exercise like this, so do be cautious. I’m extremely lucky that I’ve had some great coaching by people who really believe in my potential. I can’t say this enough: surround yourself with knowledgeable people who see the best in you and can get the best out of you! Just because you’re older doesn’t mean you can’t still be pushed and still learn and grow. Am I right? 👵🏼👵🏼👵🏼 . I am using bumper plates, and only lifting 65 lbs total. I was demonstrating this lift for an interview with @cbctoronto . I would never in a million years have imagined I’d be on the news demonstrating how I exercise. If my journey can inspire some changes in how trainers approach training the older population, then I’m all the happier for it. We really can keep growing and improving at any age! . With love, Joan! . Leggings: @tilyoucollapse Use code JOAN to save $$ . #fitover70 #inspi #fitspo #deadlifts #girlswhopowerlift #girlswholift#girlswithmuscle #legday

喬安認為,女兒的指導是她能持之以恆的一大功臣。「我一直都很欣賞她,但讓她來當我的教練完全是另外一件事,」對於身為教練的女兒,喬安充滿敬意,「她不會讓我完全只按照自己的步調前進,訓練是有挑戰性的,我很感激這一點。」

老人經常被認為是脆弱、需要被照顧的,喬安卻不這麼認為,「我們是強壯且能夠改變的。」對於想要嘗試健身的長者,喬安持正面的態度,認為年齡只是一個數字,「一個人老了,不代表一定需要被呵護備至。」

她鼓勵年長者享受被激勵、有人期待你勇於嘗試的感覺。「雖不能讓時鐘逆轉,但你可以再次讓它上緊發條。」
