Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying your day so far!
I believe that the people you surround yourself with is a direct reflection of who you are in that point in your life. In my book, “Gold Medal Strategies”, one of my key strategies is, Staying Young in Outlook and Spirit. Whenever I have the opportunity to speak to a group, I always emphasize the importance of staying relevant. With this being said, let’s face it…getting old is just not fun. Especially from a former athlete’s perspective, your body just doesn’t work or respond the way that it used to. For me, that is the hardest part – my mind still thinks I can still do everything that my once 20-year-old self could do – but the cold hard truth is that it can’t. For years, I have been trying to find ways to stay relevant and a big part of that for me is staying in shape, and most importantly healthy. When staying in shape wasn’t a part of my “job” I had to find ways to keep my motivation alive. I was never a runner – in my earlier fatherhood years I would have my wife and kids drive me five miles from our house to force me to run home without having the option of turning around because I hated running so much. As ridiculous as that sounds, I had to be creative with the ways I could get exercise with my short window of opportunity in the corporate world. Inevitably, like a lot of athletes, I resorted back to biking because of its familiarity from my training days and how it doesn’t take a toll on my old injuries or joints. Especially over the past ten years, I have been drawn to biking, but only outdoor. Living in Florida I am spoiled with a bike trail close to my house, so going for a long bike ride became part of my daily routine. However, with mother nature as my decision maker, sometimes there would be days that I just couldn’t get a good work out in. If it wasn’t the weather, then something would come up where I didn’t have the time or daylight to get the bike ride in that I desired ultimately ending in frustration.
It wasn’t until recently that I was introduced to the “Expresso” bike, and let me tell you, it was a game changer. I never would have thought that I would ever find myself on a stationary bike again. This bike is the first time I have felt like working out wasn’t something I “had” to do, but wanted to do. It has the capability to train and challenge professional athletes, but is also perfect for men and women trying to stay in shape. This bike has had the power to make me feel young again, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are different games you can play where you can compete against others or your personal best score. The bike has a “ghost” feature that lingers to show you how close or far behind you are from your personal best score, which I really like. In my humble opinion, this bike puts every other training bike to shame. The sleekness and technology is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I am completely engaged throughout my workout and the results I have been getting have been rewarding. The best part about the bike is that it is on my time and I never get bored. Every workout I do is a new experience and a new challenge. The Expresso bike is keeping me young and healthy and I would strongly recommend it to any of you who are looking for a challenge or if you want to get into the best shape of your life.
