Welcome to Stronger Farther Faster, a blog dedicated to fitness for those over the age of 40. I help those lost souls who want to return to a fitness level they’ve had in the past, or want to take steps to reach a fitness level they never have before.
Maybe you’re here because you’re looking for a place to start or have been intimidated by gyms in the past. Maybe you’re here because you’ve been facing unhealthy situations and want to correct the problems of the past. Or maybe you’ve started but don’t know where to go to level up. All these (and many more) are reasons you’ve come to this site.
My goal is to inspire, motivate and educate you on anything and everything I can to get you to a level of fitness you’ve never had before. I want to inspire you to lead a healthier and happier life through fitness. I will educate you on what is takes and what is involved when start later in life.
Fitness can be a scary word at times. I was an individual where I would look at something like weight lifting and say “Oh, that’s not for me”. I did one Body Combat class at my gym and it took me a week to recover. There’s no need to be afraid of a high level of fitness. Yes, there is work involved in improving. Yes, you will need to make some hard decisions. In the end you will thank yourself for doing the work and making the decisions.
May fitness blogs tend to cater toward the younger masses. I want to show you that there is more to fitness at a later age, while still keeping it fun. You’re not alone in this.
I was 40 when I picked up the fitness torch. I am a web developer. I spend most of my day behind a desk, commuting a minimum of 3 hrs a day. When I was in my 20’s I would have considered myself an athlete. I played soccer regularly, mountain biked, ran, backpacked, and so on. I maintained a healthy amount of activity. When I reached my 30’s it all stopped. I was heavily into my career as a web developer. 10 years later, I’m outside with my son trying to teach him to ride a bike. All I had to do was jog behind him. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t even make it across the yard without being heavily winded. I knew right then and there that I needed to do something.
That is when I joined a gym and later a program that has changed my life for the better. Over the last two years I’ve been able to still maintain my career, remain involved with my kids and still regularly make it to the gym. So much so that I am working on certifications to because a trainer in my own right. I want to help others in my position get to where I am and beyond. It brings on a whole new meaning to life. I have completed 5k, 10k, half-marathons, obstacle events, and others. I’m at the fittest I’ve ever been in my life and I want to inspire and motivate you to do the same.
Join me in this endeavor for a stronger, healthier life.
