In what area do you most need motivation today?

You can learn the evidence-based methods for becoming more fit over the age of 50.

My passion is assisting others in increasing their strength and mobility, through lifestyle upgrades that reduce inflammation.

These interventions involve anti-inflammatory diet strategies and body-conditioning movements.

3 Ways to Take Your Health to the Next Level

I’m 55 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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Last year my life became upside-down. I stopped eating properly and lost 22 pounds in a few months. But one day when I was on Instagram, I saw you were working out in a park and that really gave me motivation. I became a gym member and not only put back the weight I lost but also feel much better. We never know how our actions impact others. Thank you for your encouragement. I just had my breakfast and I’m heading to gym now.”
