Exercise very effectively anywhere.
Strength, performance, and endurance conditioning has been a major component of my life since I was a teenager. I have participated in many sporting events and contests during the past 40 years to measure my mental and physical fitness capabilities. I enjoy sharing what I have learned from my experience and studies. During these four decades of performance conditioning, I have been very fortunate to have trained with Olympic athletes, amateur and professional world champions; I have learned a great deal of reality based "gimmick free" fitness and conditioning lessons. I certainly don't know it all, however, I have learned over the years that some of the best training methods are actually just "a couple of steps BACK from the cutting edge." I have trained and competed in powerlifting, half Ironman distance triathlons, roadracing on a cycling team, and boxing. My dad is an 80 year old athlete who played basketball for the University of Florida Gators and has been in the greatest physical / cognitive challenge of a lifetime battling the effects of Parkinson's Disease. I assist my dad, his physicians, and dad's therapists in his great fight. I believe we all take so much of our inherent skill sets for granted until those skill sets are snatched away from us resultant from disease or accident. I hope and believe this VersusFit forum, or blog, will serve all of us as a place where we can candidly share ideas, opinions, and assistance to each to enhance daily living and championship contests.
