Faye Body Fit
Faye Brownjohn of FAYE BODY FIT talks about her approach to lifetime fitness:
‘Hi, I’m Eric’ he says as he literally jumps across the bed to shake my hand. Not overly impressive until you realise this gentleman is 83 years of age yet has the sprightliness of a teenager! Eric Dowey is a natural bodybuilding champion, competing in his first competition at the age of 33. With a number of titles under his belt, including the Mr Olympia World title, he has always been active. ‘I love training with weights and the feeling post workout’ says Eric. ‘It gives me mental and physical stimulation. The competition element also helps me focus my mind and gives me discipline’.
Unfortunately for the majority, we get less active as we get older, yet as we grow with age it’s even more important to keep our physical and
mental health a priority – particularly with increased concern of medical conditions such as osteoporosis, or where trips and falls can become more common. These are all elements which can be improved with a healthy lifestyle. I use Eric as a prime example. I’m not saying you need to take up bodybuilding, simply find an activity you enjoy and start working on your mental and physical health. And not just that, a brisk walk or exercise class (for example) can also be an ideal opportunity to meet new friends and catch up on the latest gossip.
When I grow up, I want to be like Eric.
