Very good points, Danie, thanks for posting this thought-provoking thread. I would love to see a general guideline for something like “preparedness fitness at every decade,” to where I’d know as a 40-something woman what I should be shooting for.

Obviously, one of the best assets for crisis survival will be good general health and physical fitness, so being at the top and keeping yourself at the top is utmost, but — more practically speaking — what is the baseline, and how do you maintain it while still having a life outside of prepping? (Some people can spend all day working out, but for those of us who can’t… :) ) If someone knows of something like this that’s already out there, please link – I’d love to see something on it!
