“Being healthy and playing sports and exercising have always been a part of my life, since age 6 when I started playing tennis,”

“When I retired, I didn’t want to drop the ball. I still realized the benefits of exercise.”

“I don’t train as hard or with the same intensity as I used to,”

“You have to change and tweak your activities and exercise [routine] as you get older.”

“Today my workouts typically consist of hiking, walking, rock climbing, light weight training, stretching, hot yoga, and, yes, tennis.”

*Here are your options for a “getting older” workout – hiking, rock climbing, light weight training, stretching, hot yoga, and/or tennis.

“The times that I’ve made terrible mistakes as an actor have been when I’ve tried to do something that I thought someone else would like and it didn’t come from my heart.”

“So, if you can exceed the expectations of those people you’re in business with, almost every single time you will win.”

*Watch Jane Fonda win one of her two Oscars in Klute.


“The fitness industry has changed mightily. Fast bouncing and a lot of what we did back in the early 80s has gone out of favor. Core training is where it’s at and exercise physiology has made important strides in understanding what different bodies need for different purposes.”

*Do a Jane Fonda workout – leg warmers optional.


“You’re more powerful when talking from your soul.”


Samuel L. Jackson 1948

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
