Taken from the U.S Census Bureau

People are living longer. In 1970, the average life expectancy at birth in the United States was 70.8 years; in 2008, it was 78.0 years; and by 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau projects life expectancy will reach 79.5 years.

Views on aging are also changing. Disease and disability were once considered an inevitable part of growing older, but that is no longer true. While aging does put us at greater risk for health issues, I would like to introduce you to two men who are working out, losing weight and playing pain free golf.

We are devoted to high standards of client care and will exceed your expectations of traditional personal training. 


Men between 40 and 60, you don’t have to “age” just because you’re “aging”!!

It’s a simple fact that as we get older we produce less of the hormone testosterone.  And this causes us to lose our edge and feel a lot older than we should feel. 

If you’re experiencing a decrease in energy, find you’re gaining weight, suffering from low libido, and seem to need more rest than usual then why not do something about it?  Low testosterone doesn’t have to be accepted as the natural result of aging.  You don’t have to settle for being half the man you once were. 

The answer is strength training, proper nutrition and staying active.  If you do these three things you are doing the most powerful things you can to boost your testosterone level naturally.  If you want your edge back and are looking forward to recoup  your energy, lose weight and body fat while increasing your muscle mass and most importantly, increase your life span so that you can enjoy your family and all the things you’ve worked so hard for all your life. 

Section 1


Testosterone levels decline in men after about age 35. The age-related decrease causes muscle atrophy, psychological depression, declining sexual performance and reduced interest in sex. Increasing testosterone levels boosts sexual prowess, muscle mass and self-image. The hormone contributes to sperm cell production and semen volume, sex drive and the capacity for erections.

Physical inactivity and poor diet promote obesity and create poor metabolic health that disrupt sensitive hormone systems that process carbohydrates, fats and protein, and regulate signaling chemicals that build bone and muscle mass. Aerobic exercise, interval training, weight training, weight management and stress reduction increase testosterone and improve sexual health.

Good diet and exercise promote testosterone production, improve androgen receptor activity and enhance metabolic health. A high protein diet and low in sugar contributes to increased testosterone levels. For many years, nutritionists have recommended that people eat fewer fatty foods and less red meat. Avoiding red meat and fats completely decreases testosterone and could slow down progress in your training program. A compromise is necessary – don’t give up meat, but try to eat leaner cuts. In general, tasty cuts, such as fillet mignon and New York Cut steaks, have more fat and shouldn’t be mainstays of your diet.

Follow these guidelines and you will have more energy  and a healthier lifestyle. This program helps maintain healthy blood vessels, maximize testosterone levels and helps maintain a fit, lean body


Practice interval training three days per week:

Short-duration, intense muscular exercise is typically associated with resistance training that turns on cell biochemical pathways in muscle that stimulate growth and promote the release of anabolic hormones. Canadian scientists found that high-intensity interval exercise training (HIIT) caused rapid cellular and cardiovascular changes that resemble traditional endurance training. HIIT did not, however, turn off signaling pathways that stimulate muscle protein synthesis and growth. Intervals are terrific to boost your testosterone, help build muscle mass, cut fat and promote metabolic health.
 Lift weights

Weight training boosts testosterone, increases testosterone receptor density (so the hormone works better), helps control abdominal fat, increases muscle twins and enhances self-confidence— all critical for sexual performance.

Supplements may boost natural Testosterone

Some research suggests that beet juice, nuts, omega-3 fatty acids (from supplements or fish), creatine monohydrate, horny goat weed,  pycnogenol, green tea and arginine improve sexual health. Vitamins E and C may help maintain testosterone levels by preventing free radical damage to the hormone. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals produced normally during metabolism that promote aging and depress the immune system. Protein supplements may help you control bodyweight and maintain muscle mass when trying to lose weight. Soy protein may hamper sexual health in men. Soy contains chemicals called phytoestrogens that bind with estrogen receptors and may decrease sexual performance in men.
Lose weight

Increased body fat, particularly if carried in the abdomen, decreases testosterone levels, makes you less desirable to women and promotes erection problems. Burning more calories than you consume through a sensible exercise and diet program reduces abdominal fat and beefs up testosterone levels. In turn, higher testosterone levels help you manage body fat and improve your sex life. Attaining a healthy weight will improve health.


Get enough sleep amid minimize harmful stress

Excessive stress and lack of sleep depresses testosterone, increases cortisol (a catabolic stress hormone) and lowers sex drive. Learn to distinguish good stress from bad. Good stress makes you grow emotionally and physically, and perform at top levels. Bad stress grinds you down and impairs the immune system. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
Think like a winner:

Mental state has a profound effect on testosterone levels and performance. Testosterone levels go up after winning an athletic contest but go down after a loss. Assertive behavior followed by a rise in status leads to an increase in testosterone levels. Developing a winning mental attitude sets you up for success in life.

Section 2



This program is designed to improve blood vessel health, increase blood, testosterone, cut body FAT.

Lift weights or do resistive exercises two to three days per week. Emphasize exercises that work all the muscles of in one workout. Following is a suggested exercise program .

Interval training: 6-10 sets of 30-second sprints at 100 percent effort on an elliptical trainer or stationary bicycle, with 3-4 minutes rest between each sprint. Alternatively, sprint the straightway and walk the turns for one to two miles on a standard high school or college 400-meter track. Get in shape gradually before trying full speed intervals. Also, always warm up before attempting full-speed interval training.

Lecithin is used for treating memory disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. It is also used for treating gallbladder disease, liver disease, certain types of depression, high cholesterol, anxiety, and a skin disease called eczema.
How does it work?
Lecithin is converted into acetylcholine, a substance that transmits nerve impulses.

NADH – “nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H)
This chemical occurs naturally in the body and plays a role in the chemical process that generates energy.

NADH is used for improving mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory; as well as for treating Alzheimer’s disease. Because of its role in energy production, NADH is also used for improving athletic endurance and treating chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Some people use NADH for treating high blood pressure, high cholesterol, jet lag, depression, and Parkinson’s disease; boosting the immune system; opposing alcohol’s effects on the liver and the hormone testosterone; reducing signs of aging; and protecting against the side effects of an AIDS drug called zidovudine (AZT).

Healthcare providers sometimes give NADH by intramuscular (IM) or intravenous (IV) injection for Parkinson’s disease and depression.

Turmeric – Decreases Inflammation

Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems.

might help lubricate joints and muscles, soften tissues, and increase flexibility. It also might help the immune system and reduce inflammation (swelling).

For years I have suffered from low energy. I’m a 57 year old male.

At the advice from my doctor, I began an exercise routine to try and boost my energy

levels and lose some weight.

He knows I hate traditional cardio exercises and I feel conscious around the jacked

guys at the gym.

He suggested Fitness North Dallas who caters to men my age.

3 months later, I am amazed by my results, and so is my doctor.

Chris Ownbey is an expert in his field.
