Do You Need Any Fancy Equipment To Follow The Course?
No complicated equipment is needed and you don’t even need a gym subscription to be able to follow 50 Fit training program. The only thing that you may need is either a kettle bell or dumbbell, however this is used for just a few exercises, as many movements are included for which you don’t need any equipment at all.
Who Is The Fit Over 50 Training System Right For?
Overall, this is a beneficial program of fitness and health for women and men over 50, or even approaching 50. There are many other programs out there for weight loss, fitness, and health after 50, however 50 fit really sets the standard for others to follow, and is arguable the most comprehensive guide available on the market today.
50 Fit training system is also beneficial for those over 50 who are already following a fitness regimen, as many parts go into a lot more detail for the advanced trainer.
- Joint-gentle exercises.
- Packed from start to finish with content.
- Well organized, simple to follow and easy to understand.
- Easy to follow movements and exercises.
- Suitable for all levels, beginners and advanced.
- No need for a gym subscription.
- No need to buy expensive or fancy equipment.
- Program can be followed anywhere. At home, in the garage, outdoors, or even in the office!
- Great nutrition and health information.
- The diet system is based on the Paleo Diet principles.
- No videos included. There is the option to buy exercise videos, but they aren’t included within the main package.
- Only as digital copy available. No hard cover copies. The good thing on that is, that you don’t have to wait for it and you can get started immediately. You can also take it with you on separate devices.
- No set meal plan. The system gives you the choices to choose what you want to eat, but for those needing more structure, it may take a little longer to get started with (although the information included is so detailed that we think anyone will be able to get started within a few hours).
Overall this is a fantastic guide and course. Many men and women over the age of 50 are hesitant to see how far they can transform their bodies due to underlying health/joint issues, however Fred fully caters for this, allowing anyone to have the body they want. This means a leaner, more muscular, stronger and healthier you – in just 28 days.
The icing on the cake? The program retails for under $20.. it’s nothing short of a bargain. Fred could have easily given away half the information for double the price, however with 50 Fit you are unlikely to ever need to buy another guide again.
It’s never to late to start working out! And… at under $20.00 this program is a crazy steel, and if you are over 45 this program will help you feel better and stronger quickly.
