One of the biggest challenges in life is learning to separate what we want from what we’re told we should want; failure to do this leads to a lot of stress and unhappiness. Over the past couple of days I’ve been discussing this with Personal Trainer Pamala Sharpe and wanted to share a little of what we talked about.
“Peeling the Onion – Finding My Inner Superhero” – I have to admit it’s an unusual name for a fitness website. Yet, this little phrase has shaped my approach to training for the last 30 years. It’s not just physical training, but a process of constant physical and mental self-improvement. I firmly believe that this attitude to training is what gave me the inner strength needed to beat an osteoarthritis diagnosis. It will continue to influence the way I train as I relentlessly break down mental and physical barriers in my 60’s, 70’s and beyond.
