“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.

CROSSOVER: BODY

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.
