Unstoppable After 40: My Secret Weapon For People With Joint Issues, The Ultimate Exercise For Longevity And Performance, And How To Stop An Argument With Your Spouse Before It Starts

Ready to revolutionize your health and fitness journey in 2024? We just opened spots for our coaching program starting in January.

Together, we’ll craft a personalized plan tailored to your fitness goals, lifestyle, and busy schedule.

And when you book a call now, we’ll help you manage the craziness of the holidays all through December.

Don’t wait since we have limited spots and we are getting booked fast.


The holidays are a time for family, friends…and FOOD.

While the holidays are many people’s favorite time of year (including for me) it’s the time where people gain the most weight.

In fact, studies like this one show that this time of year is when people gain the most weight during the year.

And other studies (like this one) show that we don’t shed the holiday weight once we’ve gained it.

But I have great news.

If you’re reading this newsletter, chances are that you’re a high-performing person. You can defy this trend, as many of my clients do, by adopting a proactive mindset.

Step#1: Reject the notion that holidays=weight gain.

Step#2: Track key metrics like daily weight, calorie intake, weekly workouts, and step count.

Step#3: Set boundaries at social events is crucial.

Social gatherings often lead to overeating, but isolation isn’t the solution.

Instead, learn to politely decline excess food and drink. Strategies such as having a ready response like ” “Thanks, I tried it an it’s delicious. But I’m full.” to decline offers can help maintain your diet.

Remember, your holiday doesn’t have to derail your health goals.

Here is your Unstoppable After 40 Friday Digest:


1. How to stop an argument with your spouse before it starts.

You know that feeling when hunger strikes, and suddenly, the world seems a bit less friendly? It’s not just you.

A fascinating study revealed an unusual truth: hunger can actually sour relationships.

Researchers used voodoo dolls representing spouses to measure this effect.

Participants, when hungry, showed increased aggression towards these dolls, symbolizing their partners.

It’s a clear indicator of how low blood sugar can turn us grumpy, irritable, and yes, even a bit nasty.

This phenomenon, aptly named “hangry” (a blend of hungry and angry), highlights a crucial aspect of maintaining not just our health but also our relationships.

My recommendation to you is next time you want to talk about important issues with your spouse, make sure you are not hungry. Have a protein bar or a piece of fruit before discussing an important issue.


2. My secret weapon training for people with joint issues or recovering injuries.

This is my secret weapon for clients with joint issues or recovering from injuries. It offers a safe and efficient way to enhance muscle strength without the strain of heavy lifting.

How does it work?

Blood Flow Restriction works by:

  • Trapping blood within the muscle.
  • Increasing the build-up of metabolites.
  • Which then signals your body to grow muscle.

BFR Training involves applying a band or cuff to partially restrict blood flow in a specific muscle group while exercising. This method amplifies the intensity of your workout, enabling significant gains even with lighter weights.

Imagine achieving your fitness goals without the fear of aggravating old injuries that’s what BFR training does for you.

As you can see, there are better ways to get back in shape without the fear of aggravating old injuries.

Avoid extremes at all costs and focus on techniques that are safe for your 40+ body and give you the best results for staying fit, agile, and injury-free.


3. The ultimate exercise for longevity and performance.

As we hit 40 and beyond, prioritizing health is a non-negotiable. As I always say, our health is our wealth. And that’s why I’m obsessed with longevity and finding the best ways to improve our health and get into the best shape with minimal time.

And that’s why you should start doing Zone 2 Training. It’s a strategic cardio exercise, where you maintain your heart rate at 60-70% of its maximum. This method, backed by the latest scientific findings and the Mitochondrial Theory of Aging, is a cornerstone of cardio vascular health.

Why Zone 2? It’s simple. Cardiovascular exercise is a key player in the big health picture, going beyond mere stamina and fat loss. Zone 2 training uniquely enhances mitochondrial health in your muscles, which is critical for combating age-related degeneration and chronic inflammation.

How to get started? Determine your maximum heart rate (220 minus your age) and aim to train within that 60-70% range for 40 to 90 minutes.

Consistency is key–the transformative benefits of Zone 2 Training unfold over time, contributing significantly to your longevity and peak performance. This is something that I do personally and work with all my coaching clients, improving their cardiovascular health not to just add years to their lives, but life to their years.

Quote of the week:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”—Maya Angelou

This quote it’s a powerful reminder that our actions and words might fade in memory, but the emotions they evoke linger on. It’s not just about the knowledge we impart or the deeds we perform; it’s about the human experience we create, the feelings of understanding, empathy, and connection.

In our journey towards a legendary life, let’s prioritize not only our achievements and successes but also the emotional legacy we leave behind in the hearts of those we touch.
