The following are audio recordings of the interviews I conducted. To listen to them, download the files and they will play in iTunes.
The picture below is the signature of the Male and Females I interviewed.
The following are videos of two young female runners and one older male runner I found at the YMCA who workout daily.
If you look at the videos of the runners notice how the postures and speed of the runner changes. The young females have a much better posture and speed. The older runner was in great shape for his age but he still had some posture issues and his speed was not as fast as the younger runners. I came to find out that age is a big influence in the way your body is able to exercise.
