About Fitness Over Forty


So your goal might have been to get into your wedding dress at age Forty or to be able to button your high school letter jacket at age 50. But since the age of 30, your midsection has slowly but steadily expanded, and those pounds that used to melt away in your younger years are now hanging on with stubborn persistence.

You’re not alone. Statistics show that men and women in the fourth decade of life and beyond have increasingly sedentary lifestyles that lead to obesity and higher risk of a number of chronic health problems, including diabetes and high blood pressure.

Fitness Over Forty, a weekly series of video presentations targeting the increasing "over Forty" population in East Texas, addresses health and fitness issues that are specific to men and women ages 25 to 54 and older. Dr. David Di Paolo, radiologist at UT Health Northeast and nationally-certified fitness trainer, hosts the series featuring UT Health Northeast medical professionals who inform viewers about the benefits of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

Through a partnership between UT Health Northeast and KLTV, 52 segments per year would be produced and aired, with each segment’s brief format being innovative, enlightening, and inspiring. Dr. Di Paolo’s youthful and fit appearance is well complemented by his medical knowledge and articulate presentation.

One objective of this weekly series would be to gain the attention of the aging East Texas population, particularly women ages 25 to 54. Younger women would gain knowledge about physical fitness and prevention of obesity, or they may want to pass along helpful information to older women in their families.

In summary, Fitness Over Forty promotes better health and fitness with practical advice by knowledgeable medical professionals from UT Health Northeast.
