The Coronavirus and Lifetime Athletes

As the world is engulfed in the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to band together to most effectively deal with this crisis. My deep concern goes out to anyone who has been adversely affected. The information we’ve received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other organizations, is important for us to employ. Recommendations regarding hygiene tactics, temporary social…

Fight Back Against The Reaper!

The Reaper is out there. He is coming for everyone. Eventually, he’ll get all of us. But you have some say in how it all goes down. You can go out on your own terms. There are choices we can make. We can choose to live a healthy, high-performing lifestyle and maintain wellness over a potentially longer and certainly higher-quality…

Welcome to The Lifetime Athlete!

The journey that each of us takes over a lifetime is indeed remarkable. I’m excited to announce that The Lifetime Body is now the Lifetime Athlete!

Demystifying Movement: Understanding Activity and Exercise for Health

I’m in the business of helping people to seek and achieve peak performance. I love training others and myself for the highest athletic outcomes. But a lot of my clients start their journey toward peak performance at a point where they just want or need to get healthy first. They have to learn to eat right, sleep well, and to…

Is Your Diet Working for You? (Part 2)

This is Part 2 of the dietary experiment discussion. As you’ll recall from Part 1, my intention was to raise the question of individual dietary optimization, to report on some of my personal culinary explorations, and to encourage you to consider your own diet’s impact on your health and performance. That last edition has some stories of my eating evolution,…

Is Your Diet Working for You? (Part 1)

It’s fun to experiment. And it can be very interesting and informative when you experiment on yourself. One of the easiest and perhaps most productive areas in which to conduct personal investigations is in the realm of dietary intake. Through trial and error, and a little good science, you can learn what foods really work (or don’t) for you. Done…

Putting Struggles with Weight Loss in the Rearview Mirror

Weight loss isn’t complicated. And it doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it really can be EFFORTLESS! We have a genuine need for body weight reduction in much of our population. There is no denying that. We’re currently faced with an obesity epidemic and all the associated disease and diminished quality of life it brings. And there are also…

Feast, Fight, Flee, and Fornicate…for LIFE!

F4! Where can I sign up for that? Or at least 2 out of 4! All joking aside, the four items in the title may be the true parallels between ancient and modern life. Whether you are considering the primal drives of the earliest humans, medieval life patterns like those in Game of Thrones, or the most basic endeavors of…

Kick Ass for Life!

Kicking Ass is a term that each of us can relate to in one fashion or another. In Lifetime Body terminology, it is not just the act of getting things done —  it is the reality of efficiently and effectively achieving high levels of outcomes across every category in which you participate in life. Some would say you are “crushing…

Bubble Boys and Warrior Princesses

How we go about our training for health, fitness, athletic performance, and longevity are great topics of debate these days. Are you a bubble boy who goes easy all the time and fears hard effort? Or are you a warrior princess who slashes and burns every workout in full-crush mode? Humor aside, there is probably a place for both of…
