3 Ways to Take Your Health to the Next Level
I’m 53 years old I enjoy helping others create unique solutions for improving daily quality of life.
It’s not unusual for those who meet me in person to comment on my fitness and ask me questions about how I stay strong and flexible.
My percentage of body fat fluctuates a bit depending on my work schedule and projects, but much of the time I have washboard abs.
Since I guess it’s unusual in the U.S. to see a silver-haired man my age with a lean and muscled body composition, that’s probably why I sometimes get asked questions.
I created this site so I could share the three ways I get healthier, even in post-middle age:
- Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Almost no grains, sugar or dairy. A large variety of vegetables, and one small serving of animal protein each night (more on heavy workout days).
- Cross-Training: instead of focusing on one type of exercise only, I do a different type of exercise each day – that way my body never fully adapts and I stay in the results-zone. Pilates, weight-training, sprints, yoga, cardio, mobility drills and Olympic kettlebell lifts. I like to exercise outdoors when I can. Daily exercise doesn’t require as much time as people think, but it still requires time.
- Self-Care and Personal Development: the more I develop my inner-self, the less need I have to self-medicate with things outside of myself. By learning to naturally metabolize life’s daily little anxieties I become better at staying positive and letting good things flow to me.
