Fit Over Fifty // Stanford School of Medicine

Not surprisingly, Stanford University School of Medicine once again has found that longevity is closely tied to exercise over age 50. Researchers followed 538 running club members and 423 healthy nonrunners, all aged 50 and older. After 21 years, 34% of the nonrunners had passed away, while only 15% of the club members died during the same period. The runners also had fewer deaths from heart and neurological diseases, infections and cancer. I'm pretty certain that cross training in swim and bike in a reasonable way promotes similarly remarkable advantages.

Scott Molina and I will be offering a camp setting to discuss and promote these types of issues, as well as get in some quality training with like minded people. The first two camps will be in September of 2009 (Sedona) and June 2010 (Tuscany).

Check out a great interview with Scott here:
