Jill captioned the post, "Comment FLATBELLY below and I'll send you my freeee midlife midsection guide There is so much we can NOT control. But there is also a lot of SIMPLE things we CAN do to tackle the 'midlife midsection' and preserve, and even ADD muscle in midlife (I'm 52 BTW). Muscle IS the longevity and aging well hack."


She Does Chin Ups

Jill documented her process of learning how to do chin-ups on Instagram. She shared this photo of herself after doing five of them. Jill captioned the post, "I did it! 5 with a quick break to turn! Relearned this at age 52 post explant and torn bicep. Progress not perfection! Finally got to 5. Gimme a yes or an emoji if you would love to learn a pull up?!


She Hikes

Jill loves to go on hikes. She shared this video on Instagram of herself and her dog after a hike. Jill captioned the post, "We also saw a pack of wild Donkeys 🫏😳today! I must have been 12 or 13 years old the first time I hiked. My aunt Laurie took me when I visited her in Boulder CO and I was amazed and very much hooked. Nature, the views, the feeling of LIFE had me in love. My parents were NOT nature / hikers so it wasn't until I was a young adult that re-started hiking and exploring and I've been going 30 years strong. I've hiked some of the most epic places in the country and in the world."


She Resistance Trains

Jill shared some of her fitness secrets in the caption of this Instagram post. "Resistance training matters," she writes. "The more muscle we have the more calories we burn at rest, the better our metabolism works, and the leaner an area appears. TRAIN THOSE ABS. Core is especially important to train as we age- this helps offset and prevent imbalances in all areas. And a trained core will drastically change the appearance of your midsection."


She Does Cardio

In the same Instagram post caption, Jill revealed that she loves doing cardio workouts. "Get moving. Cardio is still important. But not what you think. I am not talking about putting in the time in the elliptical while reading. MOVE your body. Walk, Hike, Bike, Pickle Ball… whatever. But MOOOOVE and do it daily. Not only does this help keep you lean it helps your heart health and your stress levels."


She Adds In Healthy Habits

In the caption of her Instagram post, Jill talked about the importance of adding in healthy habits each day. "Focus on ADDITION. Adding in movement and good nutrition where you can. Even while here in Portugal sans gym I'm doing this. It was a long day of exploring today (21,000 steps according to my ring tracker today 😅) but I was still determined to get some actual exercises in too. Did this in less than 20 minutes and you can too."
