after 50

My Story
01

Tenacity

I learned at young age that nothing is achieved without hard work. I started training in my early fifties applying that ethic. There were many challenges, including injury, strength plateaus, physical fatigue and total frustration. Fortunately, through perseverance, I have evolved and continue to learn along my never ending fitness journey.

Trial & error

As my fitness journey progressed, I have tried a multitude of workout routines, supplements, diet plans, specilty exercises, yoga and meditation. I made gains with all of these techniques and expert advice, but there are always new barriers to overcome. My understanding of the complexities of my body continues to improve as I age.

Recovery and repair

I now know all the training and nutrition is for naught if you do not let your body repair and grow. Your body is an incredible gift and I am continuing to learn what my body can tolerate as I age so that I continue achieve my ever expanding fitness goals. Discovering that you are never too old to change has been enlightning.

Striving to surpass my peak fitness at 69 years old

I began resistance training at 54 years old, having never competed in any sport, my overall strength was very limited. My doctor and others told me due to my age, my hormones and recovery abilities were diminishing, and that gaining muscle was unlikely. I refused to be swayed and began experimenting with basic training techniques. Progress was intermittent and at times stagnant. Over time, I was slowly getting stronger. Persistent training over the years has resulted in my gaining 40 pounds of muscle. Today, I continue to improve my strength and overall fitness. If you are willing to commit to an improved quality of life and longevity, it can be done. Having never been an athlete or athletic, is never an excuse for not improving your own fitness at 54 or any age.
