I am a 78-year-old retired Plastic Surgeon. I have spent my working life either standing up all day in an operating theatre or sitting all day in my consulting room. Hardly the ideal for a strong, healthy body !
About 6 months ago my son, Michael, who is a close friend of John Caldwell, who is one of the owners of Absolute Health & Performance, said to me – ” Dad, I am going to give you a present that you will probably not like.” A strange question I thought. It was that Michael had paid for ten sessions at his mate’s facility. How could I say no? So, I decked myself out in the appropriate clothes so that my son would not be embarrassed and off I went. There I was, by far the oldest in the gym and amongst the strongest a fittest group one could ever see.
Jonathan was assigned to me. He quickly assessed me and my fitness short comings. Slowly, ever so slowly we progressed. For the first few weeks I hardly raised a sweat. Then the work increased. After 6 month’s I can lift weights that were previously beyond me. I am far more flexible, but still I can’t stand on one leg. I will someday soon. It is an intelligent program that has been designed for me. Jonny tells me he is impressed. I take him at his word for that! Once started, one should never stop. I have a farm and so many jobs on the farm that were beyond me now are pushovers.
Thanks Jonny. You are a legend.
