You’re born, you age, and you die. There, I’ve said it. I get tired of people talking about anti-aging. Anti-aging doesn’t work, but vital aging is very possible, even assured with the right focus and discipline.
Clarence Bass is in his 60’s. He tests in the 99th percentile (better than 99%) for fitness in the 20 to 30 year old age group! He looks fantastic, too. I used to rock climb with a physics professor from UC Berkeley who at 65 could do one-arm chin-ups! Paul Bragg, the man who got Jack LaLanne started, died at 93. He was drowned when hit by a boat while surfing in Hawaii. And, Jack LaLannne in his 80’s can lift heavier weights than most men in their 30’s.
Most of what we call age is really just the effect of neglect. Most of the stuff that we associate with age can be reversed with the right care and the right discipline. Hormones can be returned to younger levels, body functions can be improved, flexibility, energy, and strength can be built.
What is your functional age? Biological, or functional, age tells you how well your body functions and how well you are able to sense, perceive, and interact with your environment relative to your age.
In other words, can you feel, see, and hear to your capacity? Can you experience your environment fully? Does your body have its full facility to enjoy the sensual richness and depth of experience that your environment provides? With what quality do you experience your environment? How vitally can you live each moment? I wax into the edges of philosophy here, but these questions are important to me, as I believe they are very likely to you, as well. I want to live vitally, richly, deeply, and fully.
