We’re Not Dead! We’ve Just Moved

Hello,

I am here to inform you of some very sad, yet very exciting and important news.

As you have probably noticed, if you were a regular reader of Fit Over 40, there haven’t been many posts in a number of months. A series of changes have taken place…no I didn’t grow any new hair (I WISH!!!) This has caused us to focus on expanding our capabilities.

After almost two years of blogging, we have just simply outgrown our old site.  So we stepped away from the keyboard, packed our stuff and successfully decided to make a move.

No worries, it’s the same blog — just new and improved. The new location offers much more room for expansion  as we continue to grow. The only things that have changed are our new name and our new address. 

Please bookmark our new address at:

There’s nothing that disappoints me more than seeing someone I know or someone I’ve seen in the gym; week after week, month after month, year after year be consistent with their workouts and STILL get no results!

Obviously, if they hired a fitness professional their bodies would change dramatically.  Because, that is what we do.  It’s our job.  We know how to get results for people. (more…)

As the holiday season is now finally upon us, I need to ask you for your advice. …if you could send me a message, it would be a great help to me. Consider that to be your holiday gift to me. J  Your answers will help me create a plan on how I can benefit you for the upcoming year.

 

All I ask is if you take a moment to give me your honest opinions by answering a few simple questions.  Feel free to tell me what you think.  Don’t hold back any answers.  This blog and any information coming from me is for your benefit.  So, I want to know how to best provide you with the facts and fiction of health and fitness.

1. Would you be interested in signing up for a “workout of the month” DVD that is mailed to you each month?  Sent digitally each month?  It would be like having your own personal trainer helping you reach your fitness goals.

2. What types of workouts would benefit you the most?  This depends on your goals and interests in 2009.

3. Would you be interested in signing up for an “interview of the month” CD that is mailed to you each month?  Sent to you digitally each month?

4.  Who would you like to hear from?  Fitness professionals? Nutritionists? Fat / Weight Loss Gurus? Motivational speakers? Professional athletes? Or a combination of everything that relates to health and fitness.

5. Would you be interested in signing up for a health and fitness newsletter  relating to the most up-to-date fitness information out there; that would be sent to you digitally each month? On a bi-monthly basis? On a weekly basis?

6. How much would you be willing to pay for to be a part of my “Secret Training Underground  coaching group” that gets everything; newsletter, CD, DVD, bonus reports each month?  $100 a month? $75 a month? $50 a month? $25 a month? $20 a month? 

 

This material will include the most up-to-date information that is out there right now.  A lot of this information isn’t available to the general public…only to fitness professionals. I would distribute it to the people in my ‘inner circle’ only.

 

I would REALLY like to hear from you and get your feedback on my ideas.  My goal is to help shape and change your world.  The only way I can do that is to know what you are thinking.

 

Thanks in advance and have a very happy holiday!

 

Billy

Are you as fit as your neighbor?  Is she as fit as you?  There’s no need for guess work anymore.

On Wednesday, May 14, 2008, the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports launched its Adult Fitness Test to determine how fit the average adult really is.

The idea is brilliant because it will allow everyone, from  the suburban soccer mom to the overwork investment banker, to gauge their aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility.

Here’s what the test involves:

  • Time yourself as you walk 1 mile or jog 1.5 miles.
  • Count how many half sit-ups you can do in a minute. To do a half sit-up, lie on your back with your knees bent and curl your trunk off the floor toward your knees, keeping your lower back flat on the floor.
  • Count how many push-ups you can do in a minute.
  • Take the sit-and-reach flexibility test. Sit on the floor, legs extended in front of you, with a yardstick taped to the ground between your legs (your heels should be at the 14-inch mark on the yardstick). Slowly stretch forward, your fingertips on the yardstick. Do this three times, recording how far you reach on your farthest stretch.
  • Measure your height, weight, and waist.
