Lisa Whelchel Sounds Off on Exercise and Dating at 50

Originally posted 11/24/2013 09:50AM

Lisa Whelchel has tried every exercise in the book – and she's suffered the injuries to prove it.

"I hurt my shoulder playing racquetball, I have a lower back injury from an aerobics class and I messed up my feet while training to climb Mount Whitney," she tells PEOPLE. "Even on Survivor, when I did the mud challenge, I developed sciatica that has continued to give me trouble."

So what's an active gal to do? "I decided to make my own exercise video," says Whelchel, who turned 50 in May. "It's a doable full-body workout that you can do in 20 minutes. It has stretching, resistance, cardio and a cool down. Exercise is different once you get a little older. It doesn't always have to be high impact."

Kerr, 30, who publicly separated from her husband of three years last month, accentuated the positive during her new interview – and encouraged others to do the same.
