At 52, jeff noel’s Core Is Stronger Than Ever, As Seen In This Recent Video Update

Is it possible to get better, stronger, smarter with age? Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.

May 28, 2011, the week before my birthday, a videographer captured this core health test. The intent is to walk the talk, not showoff. Most of you get that. Maybe those that don’t someday will.

There was a time when I couldn’t hold my legs up for one second. And a time when I thought 10 seconds was amazing. Sure hope you’re comprehending this journey, and more importantly, that you have started your own.

Maybe your competition is simply to see how many days, or years, in a row you can do something…

But I don’t like competition.

But I don’t like having to prove myself or measure up.

But I don’t have the time or energy.

Trust me, when you finally figure this out, you will feel amazing.

And you will kick yourself for waiting so long.

Be a beacon, not a roadblock.

How Much Fat?

Fish Are Friends, Not Food?
Fish Are Friends, Not Food?

Do you have passion? I mean, passion for your health.  Do you have it?

Most don’t.  How do I know?  Because I’m a wellness expert. As Malcolm Gladwell points out in his best-selling book, The Tipping Point, anyone who invests 10,000 hours in a specific area will become excellent at it.

So, how do you define passion?  How about FANATICAL?  Does that work for you?

Every chance we get to get a glimpse at our health numbers, we should fanatically do it.

Like three days ago at Gold’s Gym. Free body fat percentage testing. Free. Can’t beat that price.  Took less than one minute.

Sixteen percent.  Anything under 19% is considered excellent. Bet you have no clue, and you have no clue because you really, deep down inside, don’t want to know.

How do I know?  Wellness expert.  Remember?

Under Six?

“Ever worry about being too fast?”

This is usually not anything that crosses a runner’s mind.

And if you’re not a runner, think of it this way, “Ever worry about being too good at something you’re working hard to be good at?”

Um, let me guess, “No, it never crosses your mind.  Why would it?  Who doesn’t want to be really fast, or really good?”



Except when too much too soon could be detrimental to your long term success.

Heading out for a five-mile run.  I sure hope the fourth mile isn’t under six minutes.

Not yet anyway.

Did Ja?

After reading yesterday’s Lane 8 blog post, did you think long and hard about your health?

Let me guess, “No.”

What motivates you at work?  At home?

What demotivates you at work? At home?

You can use your answers to figure it out.  And that’s the bottom line isn’t it?

Figure it out!

No one is going to hold your hand.  You are an adult, fully and completely responsible for your health.


Late yesterday, I was on the phone with a great friend. We spoke for nearly 30 minutes about really significant, life “stuff”.  He’s a great listener, and he allows me to verbalize dreams, goals.

I dream of you being healthier than you are now. And doing whatever it takes to be your catalyst for positive change.

Almost 51, I practice what I preach.  Take a look. This was two days ago. How many 51 year olds can do this?
