Play • 38 min

 Dr. Vonda Wright is a renowned orthopaedic surgeon, and an authority on healthy aging. She also hosts the Hot For Your Health podcast, and has written five books - including ‘Fitness After Forty’. She’s passionate about empowering people to age well through mobility, and the vital importance of maintaining bone and muscle health as we age. She believes that aging well is something we can actively choose to do when we value ourselves enough, and we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome her as our very first guest.

Join Shelley for episode #1 of The Aging Project Podcast, as she chats to Dr. Vonda about:

  •  How keeping mobile can literally save your life
  •  Why aging doesn’t have to be an inevitable decline into ill health and frailty
  •  Why mindset matters for mobility as we age
  •  Why weight doesn’t matter, but your body composition does
  •  How staying mobile impacts your mental health
  •  What we can learn from people living in the ‘Blue Zones’
  •  Why sleep is so crucial for aging well
  •  The simple things we can do daily to ensure we stay strong and mobile as we age
  •  The connection between mobility and brain function
  •  The impact of refined sugar on our health
