“My father was overweight and smoked camel cigarettes. He had a stroke when he was 56 years old. He was an invalid for the next six years until he passed away. What I experienced during those years made me promise to myself that I would never get like that and would be able to run up a flight of stairs when I was reached his age and beyond. I turned 70 this year. I’m happy to report, I’ve not only kept my promise, but I am more active than ever.
“We’re all both students and teachers – we can benefit from each others’ experiences and the stories that demonstrate how we evolved into who we are today.”
– Tony Whatley, Founder of Fit After Fifty
Often it’s better for us to be silent so we can listen to you! Now is just that time. After all, stories are meant to be shared. If you’ve been following us, you know how much we value stories – great sources for learning, inspiring, motivating and catalyzing healthy action! We realize, too, that the personal nature of stories may make it difficult to share. We get that. However, we have three things to say if you’re reluctant to share your story of how fitness is improving your life:
1. Think “what if…” Sharing your experiences of overcoming the challenges – or simply of how fit, healthy living positively impacts your life – could help someone make needed changes in their life. You’ll never know who you may inspire unless you share your story.
2. Remaining anonymous is okay.
3. As a thank you for sharing by this time next week, we’ll send you a FREE COPY of NINE STORIES featured in, Inspire Your FitBehavior. 9 for 1 isn’t bad?!
And, Thanks! We look forwarding to hearing your story!
