The picture above is me, 18 years old. Over a decade ago! For lack of a better phrase, time really does fly.

This past weekend I had a conversation with a good buddy of mine about age and how we see it’s relation to our current fitness goals. We can remember that day, that particular year, and the ones following where our priorities were anything but being in shape. The gym to us was bicep curls and situps. We all had little frame of reference for what we were doing. None of this though is a bad thing.

What I keep hearing over and over is how much it sucks to get older. I’m not sure where this falls in anyone’s train of thought but just because it’s inevitable doesn’t mean it has to be bad. At all. I wouldn’t trade being as out of shape as I was back then, living off Ramen Noodles packages and slugging Mountain Dew. I wouldn’t dream of ever putting my strength and wellness a distant second. I wish I had found all of this sooner because the moment I put my health and wellness as a main objective, every other part of my life has become greater. I am more focused than I have ever been, stronger than I could have ever dreamed, and in a position day in and out to pass that experience on to all you guys.

No matter what age you determine to work towards a legacy, the past becomes useful experience towards that and the future turns into an exciting journey. So age is not timeline of when something ends, it’s a continual method to determine where you would like to go. I choose Love, Strength, Health, and Guidance. And as I “Age”, all of that increases. Not just the number of how many years I’ve been alive.

But damn I wish I could travel back to that day and ride the Banana Tube again!
