Fitter at 40 than 20


I'm embarrassed to say in my late teens, early 20's I got really out of shape. Just take a look at that before photo. I won't go into the exact reasons why but let's just say I was struggling.


Fast forward 20 years and I can't recall a time in the last decade where I didn't have a visible six pack - not a day. Funny thing is I actually find it way easier to stay lean and drop fat now than I did even ten years ago. I'm fitter, stronger, faster and more mobile now than I was at any point during my 20's and I'm still improving.


To be honest the photo you can see on the right is pretty much me with minimal training - like two days a week if I'm lucky - no calorie counting and all the stress that comes with running a couple of businesses and having a young family. No fancy lighting, fake tan or filters, just how I normally walk around without too much effort.


I've had periods of time of carrying significantly more muscle and being way leaner again but I think it's more honest to show what I look like when I'm just treading water. It's important because I can demonstrate that once you've "built your metabolism" and have certain lifestyle factors in place staying lean is easy, like ridiculously easy. More to the point, anyone can do this!


You don't need to spend your life in the gym - unless you want to - obsess about calories or take exotic supplements. You need to coax your body into making some foundational adaptations which anyone can do and learn how to eat appropriate to your goals and your lifestyle. There's always things you can do to advance your results but unless those things are in place your progress will always be transient and short-lived.


This is where I differ from almost anyone else in the health and fitness space that comes to mind. I'm interested in educating and empowering people to achieve their goals across a lifetime. I'm less interested in getting someone to white-knuckle their way through a 12 week transformation than showing someone how to integrate principles into their life so they don't need a coach - myself included.


If you'd like to know what's involved in learning how to become lean and athletic for life I'd love to talk to you. No pressure, I can pretty much tell you everything that's involved regardless but you need to figure out if this is something that's right for you.
