Don’t let age slow you down.Â Sam Bryant is 65 years young and still going strong.Â Check out his story:
Bryant competes against others who are 20 years younger.Â His story is yet another example of the body’s potential.Â At age 65, Bryant is all natural and continues to train several hours each day.Â And while you may not be able to train for hours each day, you can certainly find inspiration in Bryant’s story.Â Don’t let age dictate your life.
In Bryant’s own words:
“The more you exercise, the more you stop the aging process. You get old in the mind. We are all living to age. If you think you’re old, then you start acting old. When you start acting old, you feel old, look old and act old.”
I’m only in my 30’s, but I’m certain of the truth in his words.Â As a younger fighter, I was fortunate to train with both Kent Ward and Rollie Pier (who are now coaches at Strike Zone MMA).Â Kent is now in his 60’s and is still in better shape than most 20 year olds.Â You’d be amazed at how strong and well conditioned he is.Â Rollie is in his 80’s and still going strong.Â When I was younger, Rollie was still getting in the ring to spar with the young amateurs.Â Â He bought a new headgear in his 70’s!Â He was in the gym every day.Â I learned a lot from both of these men (in regards to the fight game and life in general).
Staying young starts with how you act and feel.
