The Average Fitness Consumer with Bernie Rhinerson

11/30/2021
I’ve been blessed to have some truly remarkable guest on this podcast. I’ve had authors, subject matter experts, physicians, and PhDs. I’ve also had inspirational guests who have overcome incredible obstacles and undergone amazing transformations. And I’ve loved every one of these conversations, and I’ve taken something away from each and every one of these interviews, and I hope you have as well. Today’s guest reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in interviewing an average...

Making Waves with Buzzy Kerbox

11/23/2021
I was born in Santa Monica, CA, but moved to rural southwestern PA when I was very young, maybe five or six. There I lived on a beef cattle farm with cows, chickens, horses, an apple orchard, and a gigantic vegetable garden. Somewhere in my mid-teens a divorce landed me in a teeny tiny ex coal mining town, where… well… let’s just say I didn’t exactly flourish. And right before my senior year of high school my mom, step-dad, and my three younger siblings moved to Wilmington, NC, which at the...

Coach's Corner - Health Food Imposters

11/19/2021
In this week’s episode of the Coach’s Corner I start out by talking about some foods that often get marketed as healthy, but really aren’t, and I list my top 13 foods that fall into this category as well as healthier alternatives. Then I spend a few minutes pontificating on what would happen if I had a magic wand and could give everyone their perfect dream body.

Change Yourself - Change Your World with Tim James

11/17/2021
I used to think of health as an either/or proposition – either you’re unhealthy or you’re healthy. But I now think of health as a continuum – with extremely poor health on one end, and optimal health and vitality on the other end. And if we labeled this continuum from one to ten – with 1 being very poor health, and 10 being optimal health and vitality, I’d guess that most of us over 50 are somewhere in the sub-five category. And in most cases these people don’t realize it. Let’s say they’re...

The State of Men's Health with Dr. Tracy Gapin

11/9/2021
Before we get started with today’s episode, I want to speak to you ladies. This episode is as much for you as it is for the men. When today’s guest Dr. Tracy Gapin first approached me with the topic of men’s health, I was initially reluctant, mainly because according to my statistics this show’s audience is close to 50/50 men and women. But Dr. Gapin informed me that a large number of his clients are actually referred to him by their partners – most commonly their wives. And let’s face it,...

I’m traveling this week, so just a short Coach’s Corner today. Here’s what we’re covering in today’s episode. I start off talking about my favorite superfoods and why I try to eat them every day.

The Happiness Warrior Eric North

11/3/2021
Let me ask you a personal question – are you happy? I mean you’re listening to the Over 50 Health & Wellness podcast right now, so I’ll assume you’re at least a little bit happy right now. But are you big-picture happy? I suppose we should define happiness. The dictionary states that happiness is a feeling of pleasure or contentment - or having a sense of confidence in or satisfaction with a person, arrangement, or situation. And I suppose that definition works for us. But we live in a time...

Coach's Corner - No, I'm Not Selling Counterfeit Viagra!

10/26/2021
In this week’s edition of the Coach’s Corner, I start out by talking about my website getting hacked by some nasty cyber-criminals, and then talk about some Instagram posts I’ve seen recently discussing top foods for burning belly fat. Then I talk a bit on why you should consider yourself and athlete, and that as an athlete you should focus on training instead of exercising. Then I wrap up with a discussion on set and reps, and which are the best for the athlete of aging. Below are the links...

The Godfather of Strength & Conditioning Dan John

10/20/2021
I’m a big fan of keeping things simple, of not over-complicating things. I like to take complex concepts and study them and break them down into easy-to-understand chunks. I remember a professor in college once telling me that if I couldn’t explain a concept to a child, that I didn’t fully understand that concept myself. And this love for simplicity has served me well as I dive into the world of exercise and nutrition. While nutritional science and human kinesiology can be vastly convoluted,...

Coach's Corner - Does Diet Soda Help You Lose Weight?

Below are...

Seeing the Problem Clearly with Jake Steiner

10/11/2021
If you’ve listened to this show for any length of time you know I’m a huge proponent of being your own health advocate, of talking full responsibility and ownership for your health. As one of my former guests Dr. Kien Vuu put it, you are your own best medicine. I frequently rail against the common narrative of aging - that we naturally lose muscle and mobility as we age, that aches and pains come with the territory, that we can’t be strong, vital, and capable humans as we age. But I have a...

Busting Nutrition Myths with The Healthy Skeptic Dr. Robert J. Davis

10/5/2021
Are you skeptical about health and nutrition claims? You should be. There is no single source of truth when it comes nutrition, most general practice physicians have little to no training on the subject, we’re constantly being bombarded with conflicting new-studies-show type headlines from the media, shysters and hustlers are promising amazing weight loss success if you only buy their product, and on social media there are wars being waged over the healthiest way to eat – primarily the keto...

Coach's Corner - Now Is The Time To Put A Holiday Strategy In Place

9/30/2021
Here’s what we’re covering in today’s episode. I start off talking about my new Holiday Accountability offer that I’m launching today, and then I share a couple of news stories I read this week that I found interesting. Next I discuss what’s more important for weight loss – how much you eat versus what you eat (believe it or not there’s actually a war being waged on social media over this right now). Then I discuss the role of supplementation for folks over 50, including my current...

Make Your Next Chapter Your Best Chapter with Dr. Ellen Albertson

9/28/2021
A year or so ago I was sitting on the beach with half a dozen or so people. And at age 56 at the time, I was the oldest in the group by at least a decade. And somehow the conversation turned to - at what age did you peak? And these folks – most of them in their late thirties or early forties – went around describing when they think they peaked. The responses varied – some stating right before their first child, or when they were in college. I can’t recall all of the responses, but I...

After that I talk about the seven primal human movements and discuss ways we can improve these, and then give an update on my client Broc’s progress. I do a quick book review of Diet for Great Sex by Christine DeLozier, and finish with a recap of my main takeaways from some...

Adventure Has No Age Limit with Dr. Alyssa Kuhn

9/15/2021
When’s the last time you had an adventure? When is the last time you did something challenging and exciting? When is the last time that you went exploring? When’s the last time you took a risk, or did something bold? Many of us lose our sense of adventure as we grow older. Perhaps we have aches and pains that we didn’t have as a younger person, which inhibits us from adventuring. My guest today is fond of saying that adventure has no age limit and has dedicated her life to helping older men...

(Very) Strong at 70 with Shelly Stettner

9/8/2021
If I say to you, “She’s a strong woman,” what comes to mind? Maybe your first thought is that she’s emotionally strong, or mentally tough. What if I say, “She’s a strong 70 year old woman?” Now what comes to mind? You’re probably not thinking of physical strength. That simply doesn’t fit the common narrative for 70 year olds in our culture. But what if I told you that this woman can squat 250 pounds and deadlift 320 pounds and recently set 12 American powerlifting records? And then what if I...
