Nutrition. Movment. Mindset.

Way More Than Just Another Men’s Fitness Blog

The big question I’ve been trying to answer for the last decade is the following…

Can you become more fit as you get older? 

Here’s my resounding answer…

HELL YES!

I’ve spent the last decade on a journey trying to figure all this shit out…

  • The reality is most nutrition book bestsellers are full of crap.
  • The random high intensity workouts you find on youtube will probably lead to injury, especially if you’ve had any low back pain or cranky knees or shoulders.
  • And getting a Peloton bike is a terrible idea for your hips if you already sit a lot or have spent time sitting at a desk for many years.

So, here’s my solution. 

I call it the Trifecta of Transformation: Nutrition. Movement. Mindset. 

Address these 3 elements in your life with daily actions and you will get fit and stay fit after 40.

My goal is to provide more than the generic advice you read in a men’s fitness blog. You’ll find articles and videos here that help you actually pull this off given your lifestyle. No bullshit. No fads.

I sure as hell don’t have all the answers, but I know ONE THING for sure. If you read and implement the advice I lay out in these articles, you will 100% make some meaningful progress with your health.

You will feel better in your body.

You will be able to move better and more often with less pain.

You will most likely look better in a t-shirt.

Have a look around and dive into the articles below. I think you’ll enjoy what you find.
