I was in a room of 75 health care practitioners when the lecturer said something that would change the trajectory of my life. Before this day, I was confused, frustrated and had all but given up as far as my weight was concerned. Like many of you, I’ve been yo-yo dieting since my 30s.

The Purpose of Finishing Strong
Finishing Strong is for guys like me that have allowed themselves to become complacent, giving into the societal expectation of aging by becoming overweight, grumpy, intellectually lazy, and emotionally bored. I’m not a Superhero that you’d look to that has these areas dialed in. Instead I want to be a guide who can point you in the direction of resources that have helped me to get off that slippery slope of personal decline.
I believe men were designed to be tender, loving and gracious, at the same time, a warrior, provider and protecter. These podcasts are a kick in the pants and a guide to men, a legacy for my kids, family, and friends of people who I feel are worth listening to and have contributed to my 57 years of life.
Growing old doesn’t have to suck, so join me as I am Finishing Strong.
