Yes! 50-75 years olds are athletes. They are fitness athletes, lifestyle athletes, and competitive athletes. I train some of these amazing athletes in the Bay Area and have been doing so for the past eight years. Would you like to see these athletes in action AND do you know the 5 Mistakes The Best 50-75-Year-Old Athletes Never Make?
Meet Lloyd. Lloyd is 71 years of age, Chairman of the Board of a local bank that recently went “public” on the NASDAQ exchange, and one hell of an athlete. In addition to being able to jump rope with the best of them, Lloyd can complete 10, 3-min rounds of “mitt work” with only one minute of rest in between!
And it’s not a gender thing either.
Meet Kathy. Kathy is a 69-year-old retired female executive who drives a half hour each way to the gym and has been doing so for nearly 20 years. She recently enlisted my services to “hit the mitts,” and was totally shocked by her stellar performance. I on the other hand, was not. You see, this same woman can do 27” box jumps!
Watch Kathy crush this box jump:
Here are those 5 Mistakes that Lloyd, Kathy, and other 50-75-Year-Old Athletes Never Make…
- They Don’t Go to the Gym Alone—“Hire a coach. Olympic athletes at the top of their games have coaches….do everything you can think of to find the perfect coach and trust when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” -Jen Sincero, You Are A Badass At Making Money
- They Don’t Put Goals over Values—”Values are desired qualities of ongoing action…values describe how you want to behave as a human being…Goals are desired outcomes…what you want to get, complete, possess or achieve.” –Russ Harris, The Confidence Gap
- They Don’t Compare Themselves to Others— “It’s none of your business what other people are doing. All that matters is that you’re enjoying yourself and pleased with what you’re creating.” -Jen Sincero, You Are A Badass
- They Are Not Passive Observers—“Live in the active voice. Write the script of your own life, and in doing so, you will have greater impact on the world around you…have a do something mindset.” –Tom Kelley and David Kelley, Creative Confidence
- They Don’t Quit—”Talent is how quickly your skills improve when you invest effort. Achievement is what happens when you take your acquired skills and use them.” –Angela Duckworth, Grit
