Fitness and Health are Priceless...but they don't have to be expensive!

Let me help you. You will learn about the components of physical fitness and the biological markers of aging that we are all experiencing. Read more on each in the Members Only section!
Each of these 8 sections have tools and instructional details in the membership section to help you accomplish your fitness goals! I will guide you through each step. We can use FaceTime or Skype, whichever you have.
You don't have to change your whole lifestyle, just make a few adjustments!
Grab your membership and then browse through each of the pages listed above to get a feeling for the material. Each page ties to the others to give you a basic understanding of what you are about to do. Spending a little time here will pay huge dividends later on.
If you are Very Unfit, start with the program and calendar on the Very Unfit page. Please do not rush it. Injuries and frustration are often the result of rushing ahead. You got into a very unfit state over years...you will not get fit in a few weeks.
If you used to work out and have some muscle memory, then start with the Moderately Unfit program and calendar. Again please don't rush it. Same reasons!
The programs for The Very Unfit and The Moderately Unfit consist of a 30-day training calendar listing workouts for each day. There is a specific goal for each 30-day program. Each will make use of the Fitness Tools during the program and you will continue to use them over the long term.
C'mon, grab your membership and let's get started! If you are not sure what to do, I will walk you through each and every step!
I was born in 1946, and I am one the 1st Baby Boomers and a Senior. Let me be your Certified Personal Trainer OnLine.
Going to a gym will put you in the hands of 30-year-old individual who just cannot know what it feels like to be 60-65 or 70. Well, at 70 years old, I'm already there with you, so let's do this together.
As your Personal Trainer I will help you raise your aging curve like I have done and am continuing to do.
If you are new to fitness I suggest you look at the Very Unfit and Moderately Unfit workout plans first. If you are relatively fit and want to work along with me, then I will explain everything I do, show you what I do, how I do it and why. You can adapt any of it to suit your needs or have me make suggestions and provide guidance. Or you can just select components and make your own workouts.
I do all the exercise videos, no kids or models here.
Just someone like you!
If you have a favourite exercise I have not included in the exercise list, once you are a member, you can send it in and I will include it under your name!
Here are two of my favourite exercises and one of my posture workouts!
This stretch works the lower back and the knees. Moving the stretch just a bit from side to side can change the focus in the lower back.
Lift your butt off the ground making a straight line from knees to shoulders. The goal is to slowly increase your holding time.
If you have pain restrictions, you might take an anti-inflammatory such as aspirin about an hour before you begin. This will decrease the inflammation in your muscles and joints and will thin your blood making it easier for blood to move through your system allowing for better oxygenation of your tissues (which will decrease muscle cramping and soreness). While your body starts to get back in shape, you should expect to have sore muscles, but if you have real pain then specific exercises to deal with the pain are necessary.
Whichever pain you are experiencing is the worst one ever! I know! I have a bit of arthritis in my hands, it is bothersome but not painful and I can only imagine how bad some people have it. I have had lower back pain, sciatic nerve pain, and rotator cuff pain. I have avoided hip pain but I have significant experience with sciatic nerve pain.
Here are some sample exercises and workouts dealing with each of the above. There are workouts in the Members area and more are added each month.
Back Pain - Video
There are 4 types of back pain and many of us have experienced all of them, They happen because we don't pay attention when lifting things. We have all around bad posture and bad sleep habits that lead to weakened muscles that are easily injured. The exercise series on the right makes a good starting point, and there are several other similar workouts in the Members section.
Hip Pain - Video
How many people do you know with hip pain? Again, most people don't excercise enough and the years of neglect creates muscle imbalances in the hip joint, lower back and in the legs. It also leads to poor posture. Bones get more brittle, then people fall and hips get broken all too often.
Then it is hip surgery and you are quite dependent after that.
Exercise is critical if you have COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Thirty (30) years ago I quit smoking and in March of 2016 I get diagnosed with this reward.
You must force your lungs to do some work or they will continue to degrade. COPD does not have to get worse, but if you do no exercising because it is hard, well guess what? Your lungs will get progressively worse! Thats what I am talking about on The Aging Curve.
I now know how terrifying it is to wake up in the middle of the night because I cannot catch my breath. And then I can't get back to sleep. Can't sleep because I can't breathe. After the first week I was such a mess!
Now I am learning how to deal with the drugs they want me to take.
So, if you have COPD, come and workout with me...and share what you have learned...to that end I started our first forum on COPD.
Your rotator cuff is four muscles that move and stabilize the shoulder joint. Damage to any or all of the four muscles and the ligaments that attach these muscles to bone can occur because of injury, chronic overuse, or as a result of aging. Here are four preventative moves that I use all the time. There are more in the Exercise Library.
Each of these common ailments has its own section inside with multiple workouts to help you deal with your pain. There is also a forum where you can discuss your experience with other members. I have personal experience with each of them except the Hip Pain and the Restricted Movement. What I am showing you on this site is what I learned and what helps me with the pain.
