This is the second in a two-part interview series with Peter (pictured), who is an expert in the science of exercise. In the previous episode (#3), we dived into the topic of how exercise can impact and slow down the ageing process. If you haven’t yet listened to that, hit pause and head back to episode three – we think you’ll get a lot out of it!
In this second part of the conversation, Peter discusses his own journey and personal experience of active ageing.
Peter is a very fit 68 year-old. He’s been working hard at his physical fitness, which he says also helps his mental fitness.
He’s been hard at it for a long time, and shares what he was doing 10 years ago, what he is doing now, what he intends to be doing as a 78 year old, and 88 year old.
Peter encourages us to explore this topic with our parents and our grandparents, and explains how we can all use exercise as medicine to stay a living independently for as long as possible.
We hope you enjoy this interview with Professor Peter Reaburn!
