ARE YOU READY?!

Welcome everyone...most of us have been competing since preschool. It's in our blood. I am over age 80 and still compete in 8 different sports. Through the years I have heard "are you ready" a thousand times. I still train with high school and college athletes. I still get butterflies before every event. Still conduct "camps" for athletes age 8-18. One feels he/she can go on forever...perhaps. But there will come a day when you know the end is coming. While you travel this journey...never cheat yourself. Don't be a slacker. Perhaps no one will know...but you will. You will cry out "just one more, one more." If you are not giving your best, you will have a life of regret. My driving force...I compete for those can't even walk or sit up. I conduct fitness classes for the physically and mentally challenged. Never give up on your dream...share your dream. Next blog..."pound the rock." www.secondwindfitnessfilm.com.

BRAIN WORKS

Welcome everyone...we have all heard a joke or two re the brain,,,
however this is no laughing matter. Many of you have heard the term, passive income relating to the financial field...earning money
while you sleep. Memory lose is not so much due to aging. NO, loss of memory is primarily due to "overload." As we age we keep storing more and more information This is what works for me...when I can't remember something I use what I call "brain trick." Relax your brain and think of something some thing else. Now the brain is free to "roam about." I have termed this "passive memory recall."
Time lapse...few minutes to a few hours. Many times I call on this "trick" as I'm falling asleep. Yes it works! In your quest for a high performance workout/training...when you want "on demand" results...use the "brain trick." www.secondwindfitnessfilm.com

VENUE # 4 last in series

Welcome everyone...over the years, as a business owner, consultant and athlete, I have always felt a parallel between sports and business. The number one enemy facing both...Addiction. Allowed to hang around, game over. Addiction always wins, you lose. Addiction will control your life...until you have no life. No matter
what level of life you find yourself or if you are starting over...Start with your Self Image, that's the who am I and what am I all about. The IMPACT that we make is in direct proportion to our own self image. Purpose in life is more than writing down your goals and throwing the paper into a duffel bag or brief case. It's a visualization...a Passion. this passion doesn't allow for "a drive up window." It consumes your every fiber. No road map. You find a way. You begin to act and behave as though you were already there. First to the finish line. You climbed  your Mt Everest and reached the very top. People don't climb Mt Everest just to reach the top...they climb it to conquer themselves. You conquered yourself...what a feeling. First to the finish Line...Where Winners and Survivors Always Meet. www.secondwindfitnessfilm.com

Jimmy O's Menu # 2

Welcome everyone...to get there, start here. I needed to have my entire body, mind and spirit in "sync." Even though I competed in various sports through out my life, I felt I needed a "road map" to ready myself for the Senior Olympics, the Masters and the Nationals. Jan. 2004 my training began, only to hit a roadblock in March. My physician informed me I had prostate cancer. Elected to have the seed implant. Only missed two weeks of training. 2004 was a very tough year for me. Still managed to win a dozen gold medals, 3 silver and 3 bronze. When you have to pea every 20/30 minutes and still get to the starting line on time, that will test you. December of that year, I decided to have a complete blood study. What did my body need to compete at the highest level. Did not want to guess. Went to a nutritionist and added more to my "roadmap." Once a week had a session with a Reflexologist. And twice a week massage was in order. Next blog, my eating habits.

WHAT'S ON YOUR MENU

Welcome everyone...taking one's inventory, defining one's self is  a very difficult task. Most people shun away from that duty However, it is a cleansing of mind, body and soul. That task lifts you to a higher level. Perform this necessary task once a year. There should be a "center of gravity" in each of us. I do not believe in a status quo...only a statue stays the same. Fitness, training and competing at all levels requires long repetitive hours of belief in yourself. A multi billion dollar a year is bent on feeding us the "miracle pill." Another billion dollar a year business in equipment
is ready to throw machines at us. In my interviews with over 100's of men and women in all levels training and competition, I have asked this question..."have the supplements helped your performance?" Response, "I don't know." Over the next few weeks, my blogs will fully inform you of my eating habits and workouts and competition rituals. Start at the beginning...define where you are at.
