50 Fit Review – Can Fred W. Schafer Show You How To Reshape Your Body In 28 Days?
If you’re over 40, then the thought has already crossed your mind…
You’re not sure if the workouts everyone is talking about… the tabatas, the high intensity intervals, the “risky” moves that have you throwing weights overhead and bouncing around like a circus acrobat are right for you. Right?
After all, aren’t all these workouts created by people who are at least a decade younger then you?
Well… the truth is… YES!
You MUST follow on an intelligently designed resistance training program!
This program can be simple and can be done using some free weights, bodyweight training or a little of both. And…
If you are over 40 or have injuries, it doesn’t have to be crazy fancy (AKA risky) exercises. Instead it can be slow movements, practiced with medium intensity so you can still get great results without compromising your safety.
What’s important is that you do something, you do it consistently and over time you focus on getting a little stronger each month. When you do this… You’ll stay strong and lean no matter how old you are! Now let’s look at the 50 Fit program, which has been created for those over the age of 50.
What Exactly Is The 50 Fit Training System All About?
Fit over 50 is NOT another weight loss or diet program. It is also NOT another “quick fix” solution to all of your health and wellness issues. The 50 Fit training program is a complete fitness, health and wellness lifestyle system designed for people over the age of 50. It is a 28 day challenge to take your life into a better direction on a physical, mental / emotional and spiritual level.
It does this through fundamental proven principles that will significantly improve any person’s current condition. But that can only happen under the condition that you accept the 28 day challenge of 50 Fit and participate in the program.
The fit over 50 system does include full body strength, flexibility and conditioning exercise, better nutrition and high performance mindset management. And while it is only a 28 day program it is designed to “hook” you into a permanent way of living and thinking that may be new for some.
Who Is The Author?
The author of this complete system is Fred W. Schafer, a 56 years old Certified Fitness Trainer, Nutritionist, Health and Wellness Motivational Speaker. He’s also a member of the National Medical Fitness Association.

How Does The 50 Fit Training System Work?
The 50 Fit training system is based on a 28 days workout / movement and better nutrition program. The workouts / movements are especially designed for people over 50 and are full body functional metabolic strength (FBFMS) training workouts.But don’t worry because of its name. It might sound difficult or hard to follow, but in reality it isn’t.
The core movements of the program are pushing, pulling, squatting, bending, rotation/twisting, lunging and striding (walk/run). There are movements included for beginners as well as advanced fitness people.

Do You Need A Gym Subscription To Follow The Program?
No, you don’t need any gym subscription to be able to follow Fred Schafer’s training program. All you need is either a kettle bell or dumbbell but not for all of the exercises. Fred included many different movements, for which you don’t even need any equipment at all.
Who Is The Fit Over 50 Training System Right For?
Overall, this is a beneficial program of fitness and health for everyone over 50, women and men. There are many helpful programs out there for weight loss, fitness, and general health after 50. Systems range from relaxation programs, hypnosis, yoga, Pilates, resistance bands and fitness. Although this program is by no means a silver bullet to perfection, I believe it’s the most comprehensive program for a combination of weight loss, getting & keeping fit, and overall health for those over 50.
This health & training system is also beneficial for those over 50 who are already doing any kind of fitness or following any other fitness program. If you’re one of those, then you’ll benefit from all the nutrition information as well as the different exercises, since Fred included movements for all levels.
- Loads of content

- No need for a gym subscription
- No need to buy expensive equipment
- The movements can be done anywhere. Your office, garage, motel room or even outdoors!
- Joint gentle exercises
- Great nutrition and health information
- The diet system is similar to the Paleo Diet, natural, quick, and effective
- No exercise videos. There’s an option to buy exercise videos, but they aren’t included within the main package.
- Only as digital copy available. No hard cover copies. The good thing on that is, that you don’t have to wait for it and you can get started immediately.
- No meal plan. Don’t get me wrong. There is so much great information about nutrition and eating healthy like I haven’t seen in any other program. But there’s no meal plan included. It would have been nice to get at least a meal plan to get started with healthy eating.
