I know one 65yr old woman who had lots of pain in her hips and legs but her muscles are so atrophied from a lifetime without exercise. What is causing her pain and what can i do for her? Another woman in her sixties is walking 45mins a day since her husband died of heart complications. She want to avoid the same fate but she gets so tired after her walks. What is going on? Shouldn’t walking make people feel invigorated and happy?
Everyone is different when it comes to pain in the body.
Have you had her talk to her medical professionals?
After that ask about her past experiences with fitness- if she played sports, has she had surgeries, what has she done to help the pain, etc.
Walking can be beneficial, but at some point many people have to move to recumbent bikes, elliptical, or aquatics because they are unable to work with low impact exercises.
