    I am older (pushing 40) but would love to possibly join in on this sometime. I would like to face men/women closer to my age though... not teens or young 20 somethings.

    Anyone know if there is an age limit?

    Age is a state of mind. If you think you are too old, than you are.

    No there is no age limit. You seen the movies right? Old dudes got the best skills!!
     
  3. Hi there - I'm 43. ;)
    As long as the body is willing, there is no limit for action. And the more action - the longer the body is willing. ;)

    I once asked my doctor why people in their 50's start becoming so weak and tired... He said a body in motion tends to stay in motion. In other words, the less you move the less your body will be able to! GO FOR IT! One of the trainers at the club I joined is 51!

    Your own health is always the most important factor. There are people who are 80 years old still weight lifting, but others not so much. I think 40 is still quite young health wise, so you should be good :)

    Don't let other people's perception on "age" determine how you feel man. There is no age limit on fun!

    Makes sense to me. I have seen people in their 40's who were so out of shape and unhealthy just from working desk jobs!

    Exactly! My older sister works as a nurse but she does the filing and what not so she is sitting ALL DAY. She said she noticed with in the first 5 years of this job, she felt sluggish, aged, and weak. She had to start doing work outs to keep herself moving when she had a long shift and she has improved but she has admitted this job and any job really that involved sitting for hours at a time will age you.

    I know quite a number of people who spend a lot of their time sitting and they are also always tired. My friend is actually addicted to energy drinks because his job involves running servers (website ones) from his house so he is sitting 90% of the time he is awake. He has to drink 3+ energy drinks a day to stay awake.

    Same here. This guy I work with seems to turn into a complete d bag when he doesn't have his monster. That stuff smells awful too I don't know how people drink it.

    Yikes! My father used to be a heavy soda drinker so he was used to the chemicals and caffeine. I know when he gave it up a few years back he was not fun to be around. My mom used to say he was having fizz fits lol It took him a good 6 months to get it all out of his system. And this is completely off topic... lol My dad is 51 though and he has spun a saber or two in his day ;)

    I actually was reading a thing the other day that explained why people are becoming unhealthy in spite of all out medical advances and it is because of lack of movement. Like older people believe the lie they have to slow down. I did. I actually almost put the wrong age on my profile because I thought I was "too old" to even be considering this. I am glad to see everyone being so open minded about it and not all "You're too old, what if you break a hip!?" lol

    If there was an age limit, I would not listen to it. This is like people telling everyone only kids can go trick or treating... pffff!
    I'm 23 and still do it. NO SHAME! If you feel healthy and want to stay that way, keep up the fight!

    I couldnt make it again. What did it look like? No concept of this even. Anyone got some log of at least part of the even, perhaps the start, or anything?
