67 year old male
Hobbes Estate - Benton County
I have been a fitness advocate all my life. Now at the ripe old age of 59 I am ready to take this vintage vehicle to new levels of fitness. Why not? I am a firm believer of always progressing to a new level. I have competed against athletes of all ages and am always amazed at the strength and depth of the human spirit. I have played competitive soccer, ran competitively. I hike, bike and weight train when I am not busy with work and family.
Probably my most challenging physical challenge was running the round trip of the Pike's Peak Marathon.
My lowlights are 2. I was sidelined for awhile with a rotator-cuff injury and also missed some workout time due to illness.
My next big goal is to drop about 20 pounds and get back to my optimal weight. I plan on varying my workouts to keep things fresh. A half marathon this fall seems like a great target.
Probably any activity that will strengthen my core muscles. Every sport and activity depends on a solid, lean, core. It is rather like the fire in the furnace.
Keeping things fresh and challenging. It is good to vary workouts so that things don't get stagnant or repetitious. Every good workout is like a mini-adventure.
What really motivates me is seeing others that are successful. It is always good to gain new knowledge and see how others improve themselves, their health and meet their fitness goals. Also having been a runner there is always that illusive personal best.
My idea of a great workout is running through tough terrain like some of the local trails. This refreshes both body and spirit. An hour and a half of hitting all your reps in the gym also gives a sense of satisfaction.
Improve overall health
I am able to get started, and once started I give myself a decent workout.
I am fairly experienced, but by no means an expert.
I like to workout with friends, but still want to get a good workout.
