Your Fitness Goals Can be Achieved at Any Age, It is Never too Late

Today I have the pleasure of speaking to SUSAN NIEBERGALL. Susan Niebergall is a personal trainer, and strength coach who started her online training business in her 50’s after 24 years as a school counselor. Whilst a regular gym goer she says she struggled with her weight for 30 years and it was not until she was 54 years old that she finally started to get stronger, leaner and achieve her fitness and weightloss goals. She is also the author of the book “Fit at Any Age, It is Never to Late” which details her journey to finding having the body she wanted in her 50’s. Susan is a firm believer in taking personal responsibility for ones life and that it is never to late to change and achieve your fitness goals.

In our talk Susan shares her personal journey and the challenges she faced with weight over 30 years despite being what she calls a “Gym rat”. She reveals how it was not until 54 she fully understood and unlocked the power of nutrition whilst optimizing her training to finally have the results she had been struggling to acheive. We talk about personal resonsibility and accountability, the need for consistency and focusing on the basics, such as reducing the number of calories in whilst ensuring the optimal amount of calories out, in order to create the calorie deficit needed for weight loss.

She shares the importance of realistic expectations and how she uses performance goals to keep her motivated. We talk about the importance of strength training, mobility and recovery for helping to achieve one’s fitness goals. Susan also shares a little about her book Fit at Any Age, It is Never to Late and how she is hoping to inspire other women who have faced the same challenges as her to keep trying and to never give up on their fitness or body goals.
