Hi everyone and welcome to my Fitness for Guys Over 60 website. At the time of this writing I am 68 years old. I’ve been a student of the ‘how-to’s’ and the many benefits of improving fitness. Thanks to science and technology, there are vast amounts of information today that make it so people can train less and achieve so much more than in years gone by. There is information on how to find the motivation to actually look forward to training. I have had the joy of helping guys I know, who are in the ‘second half of life’ to begin and maintain a lifestyle of being stronger, more flexible and feeling better than they had for years. And it doesn’t have to involve countless hours of training.
A Little About My Journey
When I was in my 20s a couple of buddies and started working out at a gym. We didn’t know anything about training or the role of nutrition and rest. I went to the gym 2 or 3 times a week, did the same exercises every time. I ran a couple of miles on 3 other days. Definitely, my overall improved my overall fitness and sense of well-being. Additionally, grew some muscle and strength but I plateaued, lost motivation and stopped.
Through my 30s and 40s I played racquetball and roller hockey. At 47 years old I was ready to hang up my skates. I decided to join a gym. I knew I needed to have some kind of structured plan. Working out at a “90 day challenge” helped me immensely. It provided me with information and structure. I trained with weights for about 45 minutes, 3 days per week and 20 minutes of cardio 3 days a week. Additionally, followed an easy nutrition plan. I took ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures. The transformation was amazing! I felt fantastic and my energy levels were through the roof.
I shared my story and showed my ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures to lots of guys at work. “Would you be willing to dedicate 90 days of your life to make this kind of transformation?”, I asked. Over 30 guys I knew at work entered the 90-day challenge. It was extremely gratifying for me to encourage and contribute to the lives of those guys and see them enjoy the benefits that I was enjoying.
Things have gotten better
In the last 20 years much has been learned about the science of exercise, muscle growth and nutrition. There are Facebook groups of people in their 50s, 60s and beyond that share and encourage each other as they enjoy living with fitness and strength equal to or greater than when they were decades younger. Being able to run around and play with grandchildren is one of life’s great joys.
Adding value and contributing into the lives of others is extremely fulfilling for me. Building muscle and fitness is something that has been a blessing in my life and I would love to help you if you so desire.
Why this website
My aim is to provide resources, information, motivation, support and encouragement to help guys age well, to be strong and fit. With training for muscle and strength, bone density improves too. The body also responds by creating more testosterone. The immune system strengthens. These are just some benefits I aim to help you and other men enjoy for years to come.
All the best,
