How a single mother turned her fitness journey into a movement revolution

Fitness is not just about exercise. It's about movement, joy and nature. That's the message of Shebah Carfagna, a single mother and fitness coach who shares her inspiring story of overcoming challenges and living an ageless lifestyle on the Live Long and Master Aging podcast.

Shebah is the co-founder of Ageless Workout, a Miami-based health and wellness company that offers online and in-person classes, workshops and retreats for people of all ages and abilities. She teaches the Joy Principle, which is about finding joy in every movement and making fitness fun and accessible for everyone.

Shebah's fitness journey started when she was a young single mother of an autistic child. She faced many difficulties and hardships, but she knew she had to be strong for herself and her son. She decided to wake up in the middle of the night to be at the gym by 3:45 am every day to work out. She soon discovered the benefits of movement for her physical and mental health.

She also discovered her passion for teaching and helping others. She became a fitness instructor and later co-founded Ageless Workout with her partner, Nate Wilkins. Together, they created a movement revolution that aims to empower people to live their best lives.

Shebah believes in the power of walking as a simple and effective way to keep the body fluid, the joints moving and the muscles lengthened. 

She explains: “Recent studies show that gait speed, as well as the movement of walking, keeps the body fluid, keeps the joints moving, keeps the muscle length longer.”

Shebah also practices ecotherapy, which is about connecting with nature and nurturing mind, body and soul. She has an ageless mindset, which means she does not let her age define her or limit her potential.

Shebah's vision for the future is to create a community of ageless warriors who support each other and celebrate life. She wants to inspire people to move more, eat better, sleep well, meditate, be grateful and have purpose. She wants to show people that aging is not a burden but an opportunity.

"I want to continue to feel great. I see people from years ago that say, 'You haven’t changed,' and I think, 'this really was my passion, my career and what I studied for.'"
