Getting Fit At Any Age
Who we are
Penny Cooper has been into personal fitness ever since before anyone ever called it that. Adventurous and loving cycling, running and hiking in the great outdoors.
Not only a qualified Personal Trainer but our Editor-in-Chief at Midlife Hacks pulls on her qualifications with a BA in English from Edinburgh Uni.
Penny wants to encourage everyone, especially those over 50 to keep moving and eat well to remain fit or to get fitter for an improved quality of life as we age.
