Sometimes you find yourself at a perfect moment to look back on the recent past and also look ahead to what might be just around the corner. 

Andwe’re all at such a point right now, aren’t we — here at the end of pandemic. 

So I want to share a recording of a roundtable discussion on the topic that I was asked to join last week, hosted by Dr. Dan Ritchie of the Functional Aging Institute. It’s me and three diverse experts from various angles of the fitness over 50 world:  

  • Dr. Emily Splichal, a podiatrist, movement specialist and founder of Naboso Technology in Phoenix
  • Paul Holbrook of Age Performance Studio in Salt Lake City
  • Dianne Bailey of Conditioning Classroom and Open the Door to Tai Chi in Denver

I’ll be speaking at FAI’s Functional Aging Summit next month. Be sure to sign up in advance for tons of great speakers. Here’s the link
