At Fit To Hunt our motto is “we can help prepare you for the hunt of a lifetime or just hunt for a lifetime.” In my career as a personal trainer and coach I have had the opportunity to witness some amazing things and the idea that good nutrition and a sensible exercise program can not only add years to your life but life to your ears is a recurring theme.
Every day we see men and women who are not just slowing down the aging process…they are redefining what it means to be 50, 60, 70 and 80+ by working to keep their bodies, hearts and minds physically fit.
Remember the saying that age is just a number? This month we have asked our colleague, Fit To Hunt pro staff member and owner of More Than Exercise Steve Payne to give his account on the importance of exercise and old guys getting it done.
What did you pick out from this video? Here are some of the highlights:
#1. These people did not look or act their age…in a good way.
#2. Most started when they were younger and have made this a lifestyle. (although starting exercise at any age will produce results)
#3. There is no magic potion. It is about the right program, mindset and consistency.
The most important of my observations: Did anyone in that video look like what most people in that age range are perceived to look like?
Friends, working out and eating better to lose weight because your doctor told you to is…well…it’s boring. Working out and eating better to perform better in the field and extend the longevity of your outdoor adventures may be the “why” that produces motivation to stay disciplined for years to come.
The weight loss or health improvements you earn you while training to be Fit To Hunt are a side effect of you doing an activity to improve an activity you love.
You get the same result (better health, better performance and a happy doctor) but your reason or why is to perform better in the field. Not to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol numbers.
It is never too late to begin and if you are below that 40 year old marker, what you do now will define what you can do when you are 50, 60, 70 or 80+ so now is the time to start!
Our coaches would love to work with you.
