One of my life's main purposes is to grow the Kingdom of God and introduce people to His teachings, spreading the Good News in my everyday life

Although raised in a devout, church-going family, I did not make a personal commitment to Christ until just before my 20th birthday. That one decision completely changed the course of my life. I became inquisitive and decided to explore the teachings of The Maker. Several years later, while in Bible School, I sensed a strong call from God to become a preacher of the Gospel, and after a period of struggle, committed myself to that call. I continued my education, majoring in Anthropology and Theology. Accomplishments are not the only measure of a person’s life, as such, I always approach people with a sense of compassion and love. I strive to be a great example of what a loving Christian is and hope to be known, and remembered for, my love and dedication to family and friends, as well as people at large.

Ernestine started her fitness journey at a rather late age of 56. However, that didn't stop her from achieving her fitness goals.

If you’re worried that you’re too late to the party to make a difference, you’ll need to come up with a better excuse for not breaking a sweat. You can make gains in your strength and cardiovascular health even when you’re in your sixties, seventies, and eighties.

One reason exercise is so good for overall health is that it can put the brakes on the gradual loss of muscle mass that starts once you hit age 40. Loss of muscle can lead to balance problems and, in turn, increase the chances of falling.

To get the most from your middle-age fitness routine, you need a plan customized for you. Consider hiring a personal trainer who can develop a regimen that meets your unique goals.

If you can’t do 30 minutes at a time, break your workout into 10-minute intervals. Any exercise counts as long as it’s sustained for at least 10 minutes at a time and is of moderate to vigorous intensity.

As you progress, keep challenging yourself. One technique is called interval training — adding intense spurts at regular intervals during the workout. If you’re walking, increase your speed until you reach the next street sign, for example, and then drop back to your usual brisk pace until you reach the next sign; repeat the pattern for the length of the walk. If you’re biking, add some steeper hills to your path to raise your heart rate.

Before beginning the session, it is imperative that one performs stretching as a warm-up. This reduces the risk of muscle strain and improves flexibility, a core concern of exercise programs for older adults. Remember not to"bounce" or stretch too far, as this will only aggravate the muscles. Some good stretches are: triceps stretch, seated floor twist, toe touch, standing biceps stretch, and the spinal stretch.

Exercise selection for seniors is specialized. Functional movements are key, as are exercises that focus on more than one muscle. Because only a few lifts are being performed, isolation exercises would be inefficient and therefore inappropriate.

Because properly functioning joints are imperative to movement, a joint care supplement is highly recommended. Older adults have had decades of wear and tear from gravity on their joints, so picking up glucosamine, a component of cartilage, would be a wise choice.

The best overall workout would be a simple circuit-training routine that incorporates lifting movements that allow the weight to be easily controlled, which thus reduces the risk for injury.

Make sure you are careful with working out, and don't push yourself if you experience pain in your joints or if you feel sick. At the age of 60, you want to get a good workout in while protecting your body at the same time.
