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! This change of one word in my business name represents a subtle shift in the company’s focus and it has been driven by readers, listeners, and clients like you. Over the last several years,…

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…

How to be a RainMaker in Wellness…with Doug Fletcher

I recently had the extreme pleasure of visiting with Doug Fletcher, who is the co-author of How Clients Buy: A Practical Guide to Business Development for Consulting and Professional Services. Doug was a guest on the podcast and we discussed how results-getters in business are RainMakers, and how the principles explained in his book can help you to become your…

Meaty Talk

It’s kinda like “Car Talk” if you ask me. Does meat consumption make you aggressive, lower your IQ, and identify your political orientation? Or does eating rice crackers and lettuce make you irritable and give you the right to be critical of others? Dietary choice is indeed a potentially meaty subject. Debate has gone on for decades, if not centuries…
