Weight Loss for all ages can be a tough thing to commit too. Weight Loss for men over 60 can be even more challenging. You are getting to that age where retirement is in your near future or maybe you have already retired. All those years of hard work to get your wealth to a great place then you get to start slowing down but its common that the biggest thing neglected in ones health.
So financially you may be set but you cannot enjoy it to the fullest because your health is not where it needs to be.
Let me introduce you to Mark. I was connected with him through a friend who I had also had the opportunity to work with, Bill Keen (See His Story). After talking with Mark I found out that he had recently retired and just like I mentioned before his health was not in a great place so this was the chance he would make a top priority and holy smokes did he do just that.
LOSE BELLY FAT
Like anyone else who goes through a transformation like this , initially it can be a bit overwhelming with creating a new schedule with what to eat, workouts ect. but within weeks he started getting in the flow and the results started happening.
Over the course of journey I saw so many positive things happen. Yes he got ripped, I mean check out those abs, but so much more came from this that will help set him up for the rest of his life. His internal health improved, his endurance and strength both increased. I saw his lifestyle choices change and connecting the dots that he had the control of how good he wanted to feel each and everyday.
He got up to doing 50 full pushups in a row and even ran the red hill backwards with a 25 lb weighted vest on. All After the age of 60!!!
Mark, you were an absolute pleasure to work with, I am proud of your hard work and how far you have come. I am thankful our paths have crossed and I met a new friend.

FIT GUY OVER 60
In July of 2021, after spending 35+ years behind a desk, I retired. I find it disturbing that from a young age we are taught to focus much of our energy towards acquiring wealth but not towards obtaining good health. My want was to get fit so I could fully enjoy my retirement years. Recently, I had been told by a good friend that I needed to increase my upper body strength and I agreed. I witnessed several close colleagues, who retired before me, become physically fit which was inspiring! Additionally, Bill Keen from Keen Wealth Advisors shared his successful Hitch-Fit transformation story which ultimately led me to Hitch-Fit.
Hitch Fit Transformation
The challenges I faced were primarily regarding breaking the bad habits associated with eating and drinking socially with friends or with family. To overcome, I had one-on-one discussions with several people close to me explaining what I was attempting and asked for them to be a supporter as well as be patient with me and the new routine.
I am very thankful for the support showed and how friends and family paved the way for me to remain engaged despite my restrictions and training schedule. Learning to reformulate recipes with healthy ingredients was challenging yet most turned out to be very tasty alternatives.
Healthy And Fit Over 60
A few sayings I heard while I was transforming hit home:
- Discipline leads to habits which lead to lifestyle changes
- You need to sacrifice for what you want or what you want will be the sacrifice
Initially the workouts were admittedly a bit intimidating, and I was tired and sore after. Once the first couple of weeks were completed, I was comfortable with the workouts both at Hitch-Fit and at my local Gym and no longer felt conscientious or tired and sore after. Now I have high energy and feel great during and after both cardio and strength workouts.
Hitch-Fit coached me with many tips on how, what and when to eat nutritionally (I was always full). Also, how and when to exercise properly without being overly prescriptive. Their knowledge, encouragement and support were fantastic. Overall transformation was a wonderful experience I will treasure for the rest of my life. I would recommend Hitch-Fit, without reservation, to anyone who really wants to get fit.
