Mature Man Standing on a Scale

Is It Harder for a Mature Man to Diet?

And Should I Even Bother? Being a mature man, I often ask myself if it is really harder for me to diet, or does it just seem that way versus when I was younger?

Yoga for Men for Beginners

If you have considered starting to do yoga, or are just curious as to what it even is, you may enjoy this video.

Day One at the Gym

What it felt like being back Today was day one at the gym. My 100 day challenge for going to the gym for 100 days in a row has begun. Yay, for me…..I’m already pooped!

The 100 Day Adventure

At least that is what I am calling it anyway. 100 days or what may be the hardest thing that I have ever tried in my life, or perhaps will be 100 days of the easiest. Time will tell which one.
