Am I too old? Am I too fat? Am I …. Am I ….
The above represents many of the questions sent
to me. Today let me answer this question for ALL
who have it.
First, being old does NOT stop you from improving
your physical condition. Best thing you can do is
look for reasons why you CAN get fit, no matter
your age, rather than the one reason you think
is somehow preventing you.
When I had my personal training studio back in California,
from 1987 to 1999 – I trained many, many “mature” men
and women. I had a man come to me who was 88 years
young and had never worked out. Not only that, he smoked.
When he coughed, let me tell you, I thought a lung was going
to come out.
Yet, he did what I told him and his fitness level improved
dramatically. He went from barely having the strength to
get out of a chair – or to get out of bed – to making those
skills look like child’s play. Part of his workout involved
making him get out of a chair, repeatedly – as well as having
him lie down and get to his feet.
Then there was a 92-years young lady I trained. She trained
with me for four years. Her training with me was covered in
a number of newspapers – and it attracted other men and
women in their 70’s and 80’s. Without exception, every man
and woman, regardless of the age, improved.
I had another woman call me from my parking lot to ask if
she could come in for training. She was in a big white van.
I wondered, Why not just knock on m door?
Well, a minute later I had my answer as she wheeled herself to
the steps leading into my gym.
Her name was Emily. She was paralyzed from the waist down –
she was 36.
10 years earlier her first husband shot her in the back – then
killed himself. She rose above the agony, the pain and the
frustration of having to start over – but start over she did.
With me as her coach, she trained for and competed in wheel
chair marathons – along with her new husband, who was also
in a wheelchair.
