I was pretty active all my life, so the requirements didn't sound all that tough to me.
Although, considering the out of shape couch potatoes of today, I'm sure it sounds like Boot Camp to them.
I hope the private sector takes fitness seriously, or we're going to have some deaths during launches.

It sounds like you worked pretty hard. I think low impact is the way to go. You have to take care of your joints.
It's pretty hard to stay fit if your joints are shot.
Mine are still in good shape.

Astronauts need vigorous training like I had at Geri's gym and properly more.
Older people can do it but, it is harder for older people.
Now I push and motivate myself. I wish had a yoga teacher. I wish I had help but, doing here takes less time and money.

After my car accident, a year of psychical therpay I joined an incredible gym directed by a former teacher. Geri was difficult to work for but, she was a great teacher and trainer. She had people help me and I was in incredible shape. I took advanced aerobics, I did all the Cybex machines, weight lifting machines including stair master, gravitron and free weights.
When I started back to the gym I was still in pain. I gained muscle tone, did numerous sit ups and six months to a year I was a new person. When you take the classes you dance, sweat, jump and move fast. For me it was something I done for years before the accident. Only in Geri's gym all the people were certified. All the class were low impact. After a few years their I navigated space as if, gravity was no resistance. I am still fit but, I doubt I will ever be that fit again. It required five hour work outs three or more times per week.
After my son was born I lost all my weight and went back to gym. I got back in shape but, never had the time to do what I had.
