Scientific research from around the world can finally answer this question about aging…
How Can This 58 Year Old Man
Have The Body Of A 22 Year Old Gymnast?
I’m 58 years old as I write these words, and I’ve been a body builder and personal trainer my whole adult life.
So you can take it from me when I tell you the number one secret to a youthful body … a vibrant spirit … a sharp mind … and a positive outlook on life depends upon how well you eat, and how much muscle tone you have on your body.
Do you want to live longer? Do you want to live better, more fulfilled, and independently for life? Then get in the gym, and stay there for the rest of your life.
I know, that biased opinion and sage advice won’t win me a Noble prize in medicine, but it contains more truth on the subject of aging than anything you’ll read in the next 10 years.
Tell me how many days a week you are in the weight room, and what kind of a diet you are on, and I’ll tell you how long you are likely to live — and how well you’ll live for the rest of your life.
It really is that simple. Men and women who commit to themselves through a weight resistance exercise program simply don’t worry about the aging process …
Because they are too busy loving their new life and enjoying how strong they feel.
Take for example, Pat Estes.
Pat is a police officer who had allowed himself to become deconditioned, ate a horrible diet, and suffered with brain fog, lack of energy and had trouble staying alert during his shifts.
Not only that, he was carrying the most deadly kind of fat know to medicine … visceral fat, also known as internal fat.
In the picture above, you’ll see two kinds of fat represented by the color green:
- Subcutaneous fat, (fat close to the surface of your skin), and
- Visceral fat, (the dangerous internal fat that surrounds your organs).
Notice the bulk of the fat is lying under the stomach, and surrounding the intestines.
That was the dire and dangerous place Pat found himself before he called the Training Spot.
In only 28-days, using our TakeDown Challenge™, Pat literally changed his life.
He could have continued making excuses, such as, “I don’t have time to workout,” or “I’m too tired after I get off work,” or any number of other “reasons” to justify not changing his life.
If he had, he would have been playing Russian Roulette with stress, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, muscular weakness and even cancer.
And that list is only the beginning of the haunting disorders that rob, steal and even destroy your healthy immune system.
Again, the best way to defend your body against such illnesses is to hit the weight room. As an example, research reveals that by doing strength training consistently, you …
Slash your risk of Cardiovascular disease by a staggering 42%!
Did you catch that? Weight lifting decreases cardiovascular disease — by 42%.
I emphasize the point because I don’t want you to misread this as saying that cardiovascular exercise reduced cardiovascular disease.
Not knocking cardio, but this research emphasized it’s the weight room that offers these staggering cardiovascular benefits. But how is this possible?
Landmark studies at he USDA Human Nutrition Center on Aging (HNRCA) proved that people past middle age, who engaged in strength training not only put on newfound muscle, they increased their strength up to 200%.
The book, Biomarkers, written by William Evans, PH.D. and Irwin Roseberg, M.D. first identified what has become known as 10 biomarkers associated with youth and vitality:
Muscle mass, Strength, Basal metabolic rate, Body fat percentage, Aerobic capacity, Blood pressure, Insulin sensitivity, Cholesterol/HDL ratio, Bone density, and Body temperature regulation.
Those 10 biomarkers tell you how old your body is preforming — regardless of your biological age. The younger your biomarkers, the younger you really are.
Interestingly, you’ll notice the first two biomarkers are muscle mass and strength, and there’s a reason they’ve placed those two at the top of the list.
Muscle mass is responsible for the vitality of your whole physiological being. Muscle mass and strength are your primary biomarkers … the lead dominoes … that hold your health together.
When those dominoes begin to fall, all your other biomarkers will come tumbling down like a house of cards. On the other hand, when you purposely engage in weekly muscle building and strength training programs, the other biomarkers get in line and follow their leaders.
The average middle-aged person usually wants to lose weight — and our TakeDown Challenge™ is designed to help you lose as much weight as possible in only 28 days — but building muscle and strength is just as important, if not more so.
You see, it doesn’t matter if you are male or female … it doesn’t matter if you are in your 30’s, 50’s, 70’s or 90’s … and it doesn’t matter if you are active or inactive …
Your goal should be to GAIN as much MUSCLE
as you can FAST as humanly possible!
Like Mike O’Neill, (pictured), did. Mike had undergone back surgery, and in the years that followed he found himself weighing in at over 270 pounds.
Mike decided to hire one of our personal trainers to help him get back in shape, now he weighs under 200 pounds for the first time in 25 years.
He looks great, he feels great, and his back no longer bothers him.
Listen, this is why I’m advising you need to build muscle and keep it for the rest of your life.
But if that’s not enough proof, two recent studies published in the British Medical Journal clearly state that muscular strength is a remarkably strong predictor of how soon you’ll die.
In fact, researchers pulled information from over 30 studies to prove that increased strength delays mortality.
In a physiological process known as ‘gene shifting,’ strength training even helps rejuvenate your body’s power cells, called mitochondria.
According to Mark Tarnopolsky, professor of pediatrics and medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, working out and getting stronger means the …
Genetic signature of your muscles
are “turned back” by a factor of 15 to 20 years!
In other words, muscle building and strength training helps your body regenerate itself.
So, if you would like to feel, act and perform 15 to 20 years younger than you do right now, then your mission is to maximize your “biologically active” muscle mass, and reduce your “biologically inactive” fat tissue.
That’s what Pat and Mike, and countless others who have used The Training Spot have done to change their lives.
It’s the secret of how I’ve maintained a body builder’s look my whole adult life.
It’s why I do what I do. It’s why I made a career out of fitness.
And it’s why, when you join The Training Spot, I promise that you’ll get in the best shape of your life, in the shortest time possible!
