Inspirational Examples that
Leave Us with No Excuses
What's your excuse? Seriously, what good excuse could you have for not
exercising? For not eating right? For not improving your life and
renewing your youth?
Let me give you some inspirational examples of real-life people that have decided
not to join the crowd or their suicidal death march to poor health. Let me
give you some real life examples of impressive men and women that dare to defy
1. Jack LaLanne. The example of all examples is
2. Gayle Clawson. This 64-year old began weight lifting when her
husband told her the only way to combat sagging skin was to fill it with muscle.
Good advice if you ask me and she began with a vengeance. She lifts four
days a week, walk and bikes two and does powerlifting of those days. She
currently can curl 88 pounds, squat 209 and dead lift 320. Some of you
reading this can't do that and we are talking about a 64-year old female here!
 She believes she can improve and set several world records.
3. Christie Altman. This 59-year old female took up swimming, with a
passion I might add, at age 47. She has competed ever since and now ranks
in the top 10 nationally in many events in the United States Masters Swimming
tournaments.  I'll bet she can lap most of us two or three times
before we've done one!

4. Kim Saari. This 51-year old woman is a professional bodybuilder.
She has done extraordinarily well and has placed fourth, in spite of being 51,
in the Mr./Mrs. Natural Universe in 2007 and third in 2008.  Yes, she's
got the body of someone 25 years younger.
5. Marathon Times. Notice these record marathon times by age below.
The marathon times are under three hours all the way through age 73. Three
hours for 26 miles is just under an average of a seven minute mile! Again,
at age 73 someone ran 26 miles for an average of a seven minute mile. And
what's your excuse for not going to the gym four or five times a week or even
walking for an hour a day? And don't forget to notice that someone finished the race at
6. Jennifer Beals, Actress. In spite of her non-stop, grueling schedule,
this skinny thing finds time to do 10K's and an Olympic distance triathlon.
She typically does two to three movies per year, yet has found time to
train and do a half marathon in a respectable 1:57:53.  So if you think
you don't have time, think of this actress' non-stop pace and how she is able to
still get herself in shape.
7) Mavis Albin is an extraordinary 71 year old female, grandmother of eight, with
"the energy of a 20 year old". She is a few decades into menopause but you
would never know it. Her secret? Her team, the Celadrin Tigerettes,
have won the Senior Olympic gold medals three times in basketball and provide
her with abundant exercise. The team has been together ten years and have
only had one person with declining health.
