I am currently 61 years old and, believe it or not, look and feel better than I have in my entire life. The reason I became involved in the fitness industry is because I know how important it is for Baby Boomers to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle in order to give them the best chance of having a great quality of life when they reach their 70’s, 80’s, and even 90 years of age. Because I was a two-sport varsity athlete in college, being physically fit year-round was just a normal way of life for me. Upon graduating, I became a Marine Corps officer and continued my physical regimen over the next several years. Like most other men however, life got in the way…
I got married, raised two children, worked long hours, and became caught up in a lifestyle that was not conducive to maintaining a healthy body. I tried, from time to time, to make it a habit of working out on a regular basis but always fell short for one reason or another. It wasn’t until my early fifties, when I was 50 lbs heavier than when I left the Marine Corps that I finally decided to get serious and try to find a way to, not only re-capture but also maintain, the same lean, muscular body I had 25 years ago. Through a lot of research on my own, and trial and error, I am living proof that it is possible to lead a lifestyle that can make you look and feel better than you were at a much younger age.
