At 63, Chris Evert is in better shape than women half her age. Her physical training started when she was 5 years old, but today she focuses more on the mental and emotional benefits. “The clearing of my head, being more alert, and the ability to feel alive, is what I get from exercise now,” she says. “Today, I look at exercise as adding balance to my life.” She also believes in eating healthy. “You can’t be great at exercise and then eat potato chips the rest of the day,” she says. “I try to stay away from sugar as much as I can, drink a lot of water and always use sunscreen with zinc.” She also wears a hat and sunglasses every time she goes outdoors. While this sounds like typical skin cancer and wrinkle prevention, it’s deeper than that. “I had two cataracts in my eyes from the sun,” she says. “That’s why I think people need to recognize that the sun is not only going to affect your skin, it will also affect your eyes.” She credits Osteo Bi-Flex, who she recently became a spokesperson for, with keeping her active and looking and feeling fabulous; OsteoBiFlex.com.
