I'm a 63-year old guy who has always been active and loves sports. In my 20's, I trained for and completed about a dozen marathons. Between the ages of 30-50, my work and family limited my active athletic participation; but I always tried to stay reasonably fit, with some skiing and tennis. From age 50-55, I once again managed to train and complete another dozen marathon runs, including 3 Boston Marathons.
Having satisfied my inner need to compete again, I hung up my shoes; and began trying to learn the game of tennis, which is still a work in progress. But post-55, I started injuring more frequently. I knew that at this stage of my life, I had to find something new; some form of conditioning that would allow me to keep doing all the physical activities that I loved without injury.
Around my 60th birthday, several friends of mine mentioned that they were doing a unique personal fitness program, once or twice a week; and getting excellent all-around fitness results. They spoke of how simple and convenient it was, and how much younger and generally stronger they felt with the personal sessions. I initially dismissed the idea. How could I get any benefit from 30-60 minutes a week, after being used to hours and hours of long-distance running and training to get fit?
But the injuries in tennis and running became more frequent. And the recovery time much longer. So I decided to try out OneUp Fitness. I met with Matt, OneUp's senior fitness coach, for a complimentary consultation. And, I started the programme, almost 3 years ago. The rest is history!
I can only say that it is life-changing. No more unnecessary injuries. Balanced strength evenly throughout my body without 'bulking up'. A sense of new-found youth and well-being that I hadn't felt for many, many years. This is what the professionals at OneUp Fitness have done for me. I truly can't thank Matt and his team enough for my healthy present and future. I cannot say enough about this remarkable training system and methodology. It is now an integral part of my life.
My sincerest thanks,
(A very active 63-year old).
