An Update on the Peak Performance Update

Greetings Great Ones! I’m not just hoping…I’m guessing that you are having an incredible day! That’s because you are a Lifetime Athlete, which of course makes everything better. So of course I first salute you in your quest as well as your leadership. This is just what the title says…an update or actually a mojo injection. Possibly even a “state…

How to Select the Right Coach

A coach can exponentially magnify your results in health and performance. But finding the right one, the best coach for YOU, requires some careful consideration. This concept is true even if you coach yourself, since the manner in which you engage with your inner beast can make or break your outcomes. Of course, there are some situations where “you don’t…

The Seasonality of Peak Performance

Rarely in nature is anything static. It’s dynamic, whether subtly or significantly so. The seasons change. Temperatures go up and down. The length and intensity of daylight changes. Animals display differing activity and food consumption patterns. In polar regions these alterations are magnificent. But they are also modestly present even at the equator. So, if the natural world fluctuates throughout…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick message to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I appreciate you and thanks so much for being a part of The Lifetime Athlete community.  This week on the podcast, PK & I had a great discussion revolving around Thankful Thoughts. We talked about the state of human performance today and how coaching, training, and reconditioning have really entered…

Learning Through the Pandemic

I hope today finds everyone healthy, enjoying summer, and both training for and achieving peak performances. Today I’d like to recognize that we are all still in this ever-evolving situation regarding the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic and offer some perspectives on lessons that we may have learned, or should have learned, from this crisis. #1 First of all, we are…

Get Hard to Kill!

Are you hard to kill? Because that’s what I’d like to be and I’d certainly like to see you be the same. Hard to kill is being strong, fast, mobile and durable. You die late, healthy, and fast. The alternative is to be weak, slow, stiff, and fragile. This equates to expiring early, sick, and slowly. For the most part,…

Looking Back and Looking Forward

I always find this time of year to be an engaging one. Whether it’s necessary or not, many of us will be looking back at the previous year and reflecting. We’ll think about the high and low points, and what we learned or enjoyed. And we often take a few notes, mental or otherwise, of what worked and what didn’t…

Warm Wishes, Musings, and Updates

Can you believe it’s December already? I hope you had a great Thanksgiving celebration and got some killer deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I also hope you are approaching year-end in good health, with a positive outlook, and with most of your ducks in a row. December, or year-end, means different things to many of us. In business,…

Target Your Goal, Take Off in Pursuit, and Soar to Great Heights!

Any questions? Sounds good and makes sense…right? I think we’ve all heard that advice before, but let me explain why I’m offering it up right now. I was out for a drive on a rural road near my home recently. This area has a lot of raptors, especially in the autumn. As I crested a small hill on the gravel…

Removing Splinters From Your Health and Fitness

In all probability, every one of us can readily recognize the familiar nuisance of a splinter in our finger. It’s usually not exquisitely painful, but it certainly can be annoying. However, in many cases, we are barely aware that it is there, and we can generally tolerate its presence until we get around to removing it. The splinter is quite…
