My wife, Emily, and I just went away for a long holiday weekend.
When I use to travel or go on vacation, I did one of two things...
1) Stay perfectly rigid on my eating and workout plan and resist all of the fun food and activities I really wanted to do. I felt proud could be so strict while everyone else was partaking I’m delicious food abs relaxation, but deep down inside I was miserable...

At 45 years old and having helped thousands of men and women transform their bodies and health, I have realized that before you start any program to transform your body and your health, you need to first define what a successful transformation is to you.
For example, at age 27, it meant getting "shredded", having 6 pack abs and muscle popping out everywhere. lol. Now, at 45, I still care about how I look and am proud to say, I still sport a 6-pack :) However, with 3 kids, running 3 businesses, having to deal with early bone on bone arthritis and my hips and having different life goals and priorities looks a little different. For me, it's not only about looking great, but feeling great, being mobile, not spending all day in the gym or worrying about my meals and eating "perfectly", and having vibrant energy.
So, I'll ask, what does your ideal transformation look like? Is it like one of our clients Bill, a 57 year old executive who has been traveling non stop for the past 25 years and a trip to the doctor gave a wake up call that he must do something and soon, to now losing 20 lbs, being in the best shape of his life, and reconsidering if he is willing to risk his health any longer by traveling all the time?

One of the biggest false beliefs I hear on a regular basis is "I'm too old to do that." Many people in their 50's, 60's and beyond "incorrectly" believe that they are too old to make an incredible physique and health transformation. While it may take longer and likely will require different strategies than for someone in their 20's or 30's, it is 100% possible.

All too often, the moves we use in the gym don’t mimic the movements we find ourselves using to get through day-to-day life. It’s unlikely that you’re bicep curling your baby, or deadlifting your work bag. To avoid injury, it’s important that you use functional fitness to strengthen the muscles you use in daily life.
