Many years ago, I was inspired by Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2. I even found her work out in a magazine and started doing it....then I got pregnant (good thing I was on a health kick) and my dreams of a sculpted body went away.
Recently, my husband has been on a Super Hero movie kick. We own several on DVD and we watch the "special features" after each film. Those actors go through a lot to get into "hero" shape for those films...
but they actually do accomplish amazing levels of fitness.
I am 48, not so old...but not 20 or 30 anymore either. But I have to say that watching all of those fit bodies has started to inspire me again. Beyond wanting to live a more fit life...what if I were to find myself in some sort of danger? Could I run to safety (speed and/or distance)?
Could I fend off an attacker?
Could I climb out of a ravine if I fell while hiking?
I think you get the picture here.
I wonder if I can still find that Terminator work out....
