Ageless Athlete grew out of a goal I set for myself: to age gracefully; to run, walk, and move through life without disease and experience minimal body breakdown.

I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. Processed food was the norm, but we did have the advantage of no internet and limited television. Along with “gym class”, my brothers, sisters and I played outside every chance we got, so physical activity was substantial. High school involved cross-country, marching band, and color-guard. College, marriage, and kids followed. At age 39, I found myself 20 pounds heavier and feeling like crap! Something my mom told me shot back into my memory: “Just wait until you have kids. You’ll see, it’s not so easy anymore to stay thin.”

WHAT? Put the brakes on – no way! Im not going down that road!

Who is the Ageless Athlete?

November 30th, 2015|Blog, Fitness|

Robin MillerWe all are . . . or can be.
I wasn’t a serious athlete in high school. I dabbled in cross-country for one season, then moved on to other extracurricular activities . . . such as boys. Oh wait! Honey, if you’re reading this, there was only one boy . . . you!

After high school, I somehow became interested in leg warmers and high impact aerobics (could that have been the 80’s version of HIIT?). This led to teaching classes and working as a fitness instructor for a whopping $5 an hour. There were no certification courses; I just made it up as I went along. Think: big hair, “It’s Raining Men” and Rockettes style kicking. Oh yeah – I was cool. There were probably a few injuries caused, but who knew?  College sidelined my “Jane Fonda” phase, but I picked up the exercise bug here and there throughout my 20’s and 30’s.  Then . . . the dreaded . . . weight gain.  OH NO! Meet Robin

Can anyone become an ageless athlete? Any person who is, or wants to be an athlete for their lifetime can be, if […]
