“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” ~ Arthur Ashe
Physical health is a bedrock for wellness. You may think that exceptionally fit people are qualitatively different from you. Maybe they are younger, or have more time, or better genes, or fewer physical maladies than you. The truth is, superior fitness is accessible to most of us. We all get the same 24 hour day. Genes are rarely a legitimate barrier to attaining phenomenal physical conditioning. And as for the health problems, you don't become an aging hero without taking some hard knocks. Erica and I are not exceptions. Here are a few of our issues.
Deformed vertebrae from a motorcycle accident
A missing tendon in one calf from an old injury
Chronic injuries in both hips and knees
Chronic injury to left foot
