"Yup – It happens as we age 🤪 Skin loosens and you feel like you get a little 'spill over' from your bra. Call it back fat, bra bulge, or whatever you want but by strengthening your back muscles, you will stand taller and tighten and tone!" she says. "I love to work my back – the exercises feel powerful!" Here is everything you need to know about the workout – and her other lifestyle habits.

In another post, Chris emphasizes the importance of workout buddies. "Increase your chance of success when it comes to reaching your fitness goals!!" she writes.

Strength Training

Chris is a big fan of strength training. "Ladies – if you want that 'lean and toned' 💪 look, you are going to have to life weights and eat adequate protein! There is no way to build muscle besides doing the work! 

So many women complain they are getting flabby but the only way to change that is to lift weights. And guess what there are so many benefits to lifting weights as we age," she wrote, listing the benefits, which include building self-confidence, getting through menopause easier, strengthening bones, burning more calories at rest, and improving energy and metabolism. 



In another post she revealed that "the secret to success" with exercise is staying consistent. "Consistency starts by taking action! Showing up for yourself each and every day, even when you may not feel "motivated" to do so. Show up, sound the best you can and feeling accomplished when it's all said and done!" she writes. "Consistency is NOT about pushing yourself to extreme measures or neglecting rest days! Consistency IS NOT what you do once, but it IS what you do repeatedly!"

Chris also shares a lot of yoga workouts on her page. Why should you do yoga? According to Harvard Health, there is research backing up the many benefits. One study found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years gained less weight during middle adulthood. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating," they said.
