Age and Exercise Levels | Too Old To Get In Shape

When I was 5 years old I remember the utter disappointment I felt as my parents told me I was too young to join my older brother and his friends at the arcade. Now, in my 30’s, I am no longer hearing I am too young for that but get this: I’m now “too old” for that. Get out of here!! I’m a firm believer that people who lack the will or bravery to do something themselves are on a mission to sabotage the aspirations of others. This is why we created Mdrive.

Let's face it -- the effects of aging are real, I will concede that. Our bodies and brains do change as we grow older. BUT, the physical effects of aging can be fought off with proper nutrition, supplementation, and generally staying active. AND, the mental idea of aging is absolutely controlled by you. So, when you are confronted with haters, use that hater-ade as fuel on your mission to conquer your aspirations (and even prove them wrong on the journey). Age and Exercise levels will continue to change as you age, BUT, that doesn't mean it has to stop. Countless men and women before us have done just that, like Kurt Madden who is 64.

  • Colonel Sanders became a professional chef at 40 and opened KFC in his 60s.
  • J. R.R. Tolkien published the first part of the "Lord of the Rings" series when he was 62.
  • Steve Martin became a father for the first time at 67.
  • Anna Mary Robertson Moses began her painting career at 78.
  • Yuichiro Miura climbed Mt. Everest at 80.
  • Asa Long became the oldest U.S. checkers champion at 79.
  • Mohr Keet became the oldest bungee jumper at 96.
  • George Bernard Shaw completed his masterpiece play "Heartbreak House" when he was 60 years old.

What You Are Truly Too Old For

If you are over 30, through trial and error you may have learned you are too old for the following:

  • Spending time with people you don't like
  • Wasting your life at a job you hate
  • Worrying about the way you look
  • Guilty pleasures…because you no longer feel guilty 🤷🏼‍♂️
  • Choosing material objects over memories made.
  • Dwelling on the opinions of others.
  • Being anything but you, fully, truly, and unhesitantly. Everyday.

Am I Too Old to Start Something New?

Ambitions don't have an expiration date. Yes, with age comes responsibilities and inherently excuses. I absolutely admit that some goals become more difficult as you age, but doesn’t that just make you even more of a badass for accomplishing them? Fact Check: True ✔️

Switch Things Up

True Story: I once was tackled by a 70+ year old young man who oddly looked like Hulk Hogan at the gym. We had become friends over time as we frequently crossed paths, but one lesson stuck with me from our conversations. I asked him how he stayed fit for so many years of his life, his answer was simple: “I am constantly switching things up. Trying new things.” He is 100% right.

When you are new to a sport, for example, you will likely burn more calories in that effort. You will likely feel rejuvenated and work out more consistently as you are always trying new hobbies and maybe discovering new passions. You are never too old to take on new hobbies and challenge yourself.

In Conclusion

A Boston Marathon champion, Meb Keflezighi, once said: "If no one ever told you when you were born, how would you know how old you are?" If you take care of yourself, keep your body in good shape, and follow your dreams, you'll never be too old. For anything.
